Why You Should Contact a Lawyer Now

If you or a loved one think you may have a claim against the federal government under the Federal Torts Claim Act, often shortened to FTCA, you should contact an experienced 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 such a 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. The failure to meet any procedural requirement or deadline can mean that your case is barred forever.

When considering any litigation, time is never your friend.  The clock starts immediately and if you fail to act before the deadline your case can not be pursued.  The quicker you hire a lawyer the better because it gives your attorney the critical time needed to adequately investigate your case, gather evidence such as medical records, interview witnesses, etc.  The more complex the case means the more time that will be needed. Consider it like studying for a test.  The more time you spend preparing, the better off you and your case will be.

At the Law Offices of John Day, our award-winning lawyers handle all accident cases on a contingency basis.  You may have heard lawyers use this term before.  In simplest terms, it means we only get paid if we win.  The initial phone call is free. In that phone call, we will endeavor to answer your questions and tell you whether we think you have a case. Even if you don't hire us, you owe us nothing.  If you do hire us, we will perform the necessary work on your case without sending you any bills.  We won't even send you bills for the expenses associated with pursuing your case.  We will advance all necessary case expenses.  If we recover money for you, we are paid for our work and we are reimbursed for the expenses we advance.  However, unlike a lot of injury lawyers, we do not charge interest on those advanced case expenses.   If your case is unsuccessful, you owe us nothing. 

To ensure that all FTCA requirements are met and your rights are protected, you need one of our experienced attorneys working on your case. If you have been injured due to the actions of a government employee, call us at one of our offices below:
