The Tort Claims Act Protects the Injured
Many of the places we go and the spaces we inhabit each day are owned by the federal government and operated by its employees. If the negligent on-the-job behavior of a federal employee causes another person physical injury, loss of life or property damage, the victim has the right to seek restitution from the government under the Federal Tort Claims Act of 1946.
Federal tort claims differ from other civil suits because they are tried in a federal court, and are presented before a judge only – rather than before a judge and jury – in a procedure known as a bench trial. Because of the enormous difference between these two types of trials, it is critical that the prosecuting attorney have experience with the bench trial process.
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of a federal government employee, it is important to have an attorney who is well versed in Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) claims. Personal injury claims against the federal government must be brought under this set of laws.
