If you or your loved one has been injured while serving the government, contact our firm to learn more about your options in filing a claim. We can be reached via email or phone at (301) 761-2007.

Understanding The Federal Tort Claims Act

If you are a service member of the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Army or another branch of the military, you probably already know that you cannot sue the government if you are injured in the course of duty.

On the other hand, you might not know that the following provisions exist:

  • Your dependents such as your spouse and child or children can make an injury claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act if they are injured in a military hospital or on any other government property.
  • You could file an injury claim against a negligent third party such as a subcontractor or an equipment manufacturer if you, the military service member, were injured in the course of your service.

Were you injured in a fire, a car accident or an explosion caused by a government worker or a slip-and-fall accident on government property such as a negligent military hospital? We can help you determine how to pursue and obtain maximum available compensation.
