Automobile Accidents and the Federal Government

automobile crash Each day you share the road with vehicles driven by federal employees—post office vehicles, military vehicles, and any other cars or trucks operated for a federal agency. If you have been injured in a car accident involving a federal employee-driven vehicle, your claim for injuries related to that accident must usually be brought under the Federal Tort Claim Act (FTCA).

A person will generally be found to be responsible for a wreck if he or she was negligent. That may mean that they violated a traffic law, that they were distracted while driving, or that they took some other action that a reasonable person would have avoided. If the negligent party involved in a wreck was a government employee acting within the scope of his or her employment, the FTCA provides that a lawsuit may be filed against the federal government for injuries resulting from the accident.
