Wrongful Death Cases

Were those negligent employees or agents of the U.S. Government, like the Military?

If so, you may be entitled to bring claims against the responsible people or organizations.

The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) and the Military Claims Act (MCA) allow wrongful death claims to be brought against the U.S. Government when the death was caused by the negligent act or omissions of a federal employee at a military hospital or facility.

I’ve handled many different kinds of cases under the Federal Tort Claims Act in the last 25 years. Birth Injury and Cerebral Palsy Cases, which are some of the most catastrophic cases that a lawyer can handle. I’ve also handled Brain Injury cases of adults and children, Spinal Cord Injury cases, Paralysis cases and Wrongful Death cases—that’s one of the things that hurts families the most is when a family member dies and they shouldn’t have. Misdiagnoses, Failure to Diagnose, we even handle accidents and serious injuries caused by government employees. Surgical Mishaps, there’s all kinds of cases. Anytime a government employee is negligent and causes injury or death to someone there is potential for a Federal Tort Claims Act claim.
