Federal Tort Claims

Between bureaucracy and red tape, the federal government never seems to make things simple. If you think paying taxes to the federal government is onerous, try suing it for a personal injury. Federal Tort Claims Act cases are complex cases that involve a specialized understanding of extensive federal rules, statutes and procedures. To make matters even more difficult for a claimant, the federal government enjoys a number of immunities that enable it to avoid responsibility, and which must be overcome by the claimant.

Milodragovich, Dale & Steinbrenner has successfully navigated the unique legal terrain involved with Federal Tort Claims Act cases and has achieved favorable results for our clients on multiple occasions. In 2014, we achieved a $1 million settlement with the federal government in a wrongful death case under the Federal Tort Claims Act. We understand the complexities of the federal system and have, over time, developed a positive working relationship with the United States government’s attorneys who defend these cases.

We look forward to working with you to achieve the best result possible in this challenging legal field.
