Federal Tort Claims Act Litigation
Medical injuries occurring at VA facility or at a federally funded clinic, personal injuries occurring as the result of employees of the federal government
If you have been injured by the actions of a federal government employee, on federal property, at a Veterans Administration Hospital, by the actions of a doctor at a federally funded clinic or by a federally funded medical professional practicing at a regular medical clinic or hospital, a complex series of laws known as the Federal Tort Claims Act may apply. The Federal Tort Claims Act of 1946 is a complex regulatory scheme that applies to claims and lawsuits brought against the United States Government. The Federal Tort Claims Act is an exception to the common law rule that the government or “crown” has sovereign immunity and cannot be sued.
The Federal Tort Claims Act contains specific notice and administrative review periods and other provisions regarding the jurisdiction and trial of these cases. If you fail to comply with the terms of the Federal Tort Claims Act, or provide proper notice to the appropriate parties, your claim can be barred.
