Why You Should Contact a Lawyer Now
If you or a loved one may have a claim against the federal government under the FTCA, you should contact a lawyer immediately. Suing the federal government is a complex process. For example, you must file an administrative claim before filing a lawsuit, and there are at least two deadlines to meet when filing your claim. In addition, your initial listing of damages must be carefully considered, as it may later limit the damages you can seek against the government. If your claim is for medical negligence, you must meet certain requirements regarding the merit of your case before you can file your lawsuit. And failure to meet any procedural requirement or deadline can mean that your case is barred forever.
