Sue The Government For Negligence
Suing the Federal Government for the wrongdoing of its employees is different from any other type of case and requires attorneys with specialized knowledge in this area. The trial lawyers at Leesfield Scolaro have a proven track record litigating claims against the US Government. We understand how to make the Federal government pay damages for losses and suffering caused by the negligence of government employees.
The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), is a statute enacted by the United States Congress in 1946 that permits private parties to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States. There are very specific limitations and processes specified by the FTCA that must be followed in order to successfully sue the government for negligence that may have caused an accident, injury, or even wrongful death.
If you have sustained mental or physical injuries due to an accident or incident caused by the negligence of a government employee or agency, there is a possibility that you have a claim against the government for. This where the government claims attorneys at Leesfield Scolaro come in. We can help determine whether you can sue the government under the FTCA and then help you move forward with your claim.
Our attorneys will first determine whether the government is the proper party to name in the potential lawsuit or whether the government was using a private contractor.
