Q: So I have a question about suing the VA in Knoxville Iowa for basically ruining me and my brother's lives

Back when me and my brother were about 14 and 13 our father Became bedridden Most to do with heartbreak from our mother dying now he spent about a year in the VA hospital in Knoxville Iowa where he developed a terrible bedsor and they didn't turn him or move him it was about an inch a 1/2 in on to his spine and basically destroyed his ability to walk Along with a surgery to remove a kidney due to cancer where they pinched nerves in his back so it took his ability to walk he was on dialysis Me and my brother dressed his wounds they were also removing toes due to diabetes knowing that me and my brother were the sole caretakers of our father Long story short the actions of the VA cost me and my brother our educations and put us down a terrible path for life and I feel they owe us for their misconduct
