Federal Tort Claims Act Cases
If you have been injured due to the negligence of a federal government agency or on government property, the Federal Tort Claims Lawyers at The Law Offices of Eric A. Shore can help.
What is the Federal Tort Claims Act?
This act makes the United States responsible for certain injuries, loss of property, personal injury, or death caused by negligent acts of any government agency or employee acting within the scope of their job, just as a private person would be liable for said injuries.
The Federal Tort Claims Act applies in situations where:
- A person is injured on government property.
- An accident occurs with a government vehicle.
- There is a medical malpractice case against a VA doctor(s) and/or nurse(s).
- A wrongful death occurs.
Claims must be filed within two years of injury to fall within the Statute of Limitations, so it’s important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. In addition, it is imperative the requirements of this statute are met to the letter – failing to do so can cause you to lose the case.
