(WRIC) -- A veteran is heading back to Washington in hopes of helping other veterans who have suffered malpractice at the hands of contractors.
Former Virginia Congressman Dave Brat introduced the "Tally Bill" for Marine Corps veteran Brian Tally, who was misdiagnosed at a VA hospital and now has long-term problems.
But Brat wasn't re-elected and Congress never voted on the bill that would allow Tally to sue. Now, Tally is going door-to-door on Capitol Hill to get bipartisan support.
"When I couldn't find the help I needed, when every door I went to was locked, having the egregious malpractice and neglect suit that I went through ... it was just too much on me not to do something so I am considering this my civic duty," Tally said.
AMVETS, one of the nation's largest veterans organizations, is also working with Tally to get the bill passed.
