The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) allows individuals who are harmed by agencies and employees of the federal government to sue the United States in federal court. Through the FTCA process, civilians can sue for medical malpractice, wrongful death, and other personal injuries caused by the negligence of government agencies and employees.
Experienced Representation is Necessary in FTCA Cases
Experienced legal representation is essential in FTCA cases because suing the federal government is quite different from an ordinary personal injury case. Among the specialized rules and requirements for FTCA cases, an injured person must first file an administrative claim with the proper agency of the federal government within a limited amount of time after the injury.
The attorneys at Crowder Stewart LLP have served as lead counsel in scores of FTCA cases from the administrative claim phase all the way through settlement or trial. Because of the deep knowledge and experience of the attorneys at Crowder Stewart LLP, other attorneys often work together with Crowder Stewart LLP to obtain recoveries greater than what the referring attorneys would have obtained alone. As all of the attorneys at Crowder Stewart LLP previously worked in the United States Attorney’s Office, they have extensive experience in all phases of FTCA cases and understand how to best maximize a client’s recovery.
The FTCA Allows Individuals to Sue the Federal Government for Injuries Involving:
- Medical Malpractice at federally-funded facilities, such as:
- Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospitals
- VA Outpatient Clinics
- Military Hospitals
- Vehicle Collisions, such as:
- United States Postal Service Vehicles
- Military Vehicles
