Personal Injury/Wrongful Death > Federal Tort Claims Act cases
We are experienced in handling cases where a U.S. Government employee or agency has caused injury as a result of malpractice or negligence. These types of cases fall under a federal law known as the Federal Tort Claims Act. FTCA cases have their own specialized rules and requirements and anyone considering retaining a lawyer to file such a claim should consider whether that lawyer has experience with this distinct type of case. We do.
Locally, these cases can include claims for injuries or death caused by medical negligence at either the Veterans Administration Hospital or Eisenhower Hospital. If you or a family member has suffered serious injury or death as a result of the negligence of an employee of the federal government, please contact us so we can help you to evaluate your Federal Tort Claims Act case.
