  • Military and VA Medical Malpractice
  • Mesothelioma Cases
  • Birth Injuries

Federal Tort Cases

FTCA medical malpractice cases are quite different from ordinary tort cases. In such a case, the injured party may not file a lawsuit against the government until they have exhausted all administrative remedies. The injured party must first file an administrative claim with the appropriate agency of the United States government within a limited amount of time. There is a strict deadline to make claims. Service members must present their claim to the DoD within two years of the alleged malpractice.

Federal Tort Claims Act Cases Can Involve Several Areas Of Personal Injury Law, Including:

  • Army Hospital Medical Malpractice
  • Navy Hospital Medical Malpractice
  • Air Force Hospital Medical Malpractice
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital Medical Malpractice
  • United States Postal Service (USPS) Car / Truck Accidents
  • Military Truck or Vehicular Wreck
  • Medical Malpractice at a Federally Funded Clinic
  • Veterans with Mesothelioma
