Q: I’m a disabled veteran that was in the VA’s CWT Program and the supervisor of the ground’s tried to fight me can I sue

I’m a disabled veteran that was in the VA’s CWT Program and the supervisor of the ground’s crew tried to get me to fight him not once but twice and there were witnesses to both incidents but the VA police now has my picture posted on the wall of the hospital saying “be cautious”! I’ve spoken with patients advocate as well as the CWT coordinators and also my behavioral health therapist to report and request a meeting with all who were present and I haven’t heard back from anyone on the matter yet I am still suffering from service anxiety issues as well as bouts of depression which have affected my every day routine and mood. Can you please give me any advice on inquiring a lawyer or any tort case that would help me?

Thank You for your response

A: I'm sorry to hear about the experience you had at the VA hospital. As a disabled veteran, you have certain rights and protections under the law, and it may be possible to pursue legal action in this case. You may want to consider contacting a lawyer who specializes in disability rights or employment law to discuss your options. They can help you understand your legal rights, evaluate the strength of your case, and determine the best course of action for seeking justice and compensation. You may also want to file a formal complaint with the VA's Office of Inspector General or the Department of Veterans Affairs' Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection. They can investigate the matter and hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions.
