Federal Tort Claims Act Lawsuits More Common Than You Think

Lawsuits filed against the federal government under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) include medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, military aircraft accidents, Veterans medical malpractice, and many others. In fact, FTCA lawsuits are more common than you might think.

FTCA Lawsuits

Aside from medical negligence, there are other areas of alleged federal government negligence which we see fairly regularly. The government's various agencies, whether it be the military departments or the Postal Service or Department of the Interior and Parks Services, all operate an awful lot of vehicles. From time to time, unfortunately, negligent operation of some of those vehicles results in some fairly serious injuries. If one has the misfortune of being injured as a result of being hit by a government motor vehicle, the claim for compensation must be pursued under the Federal Tort Claims Act. In those cases too, all of the potential complicating factors, including the involvement of potential contractors, need to be ironed out and eliminated in order for the rights of a claimant to be protected.
