State and Federal Tort Claims Acts
Under certain laws, such as the Federal Tort Claims Act and the New York State Court of Claims Act, the government may be responsible to compensate you for your injuries. The scope of these acts covers a variety of injury claims, from medical malpractice actions to car accidents and other personal injury claims. These actions can be complex and are best handled with the aid of an experienced attorney, like the ones at The Stanley Law Offices.
Medical Claims Against the United States Government
Under federal tort law, all medical malpractice claims against the United States — including military medical malpractice claims against VA hospitals — must be filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). That law sets forth specific requirements that must be followed. These are best handled by an attorney familiar with federal tort law.
