NYC Federal Tort Claims Lawyers Handle Medical Malpractice Claims
Medical malpractice cases involving doctors at clinics supported by the federal government must be brought against the United States in federal court, according to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). Before a lawsuit is brought against the United States, a claim must be presented to the appropriate federal agency in a timely manner so that it can investigate and try to resolve the medical malpractice claim. It is important to identify the owner of the health care facility quickly since there are short time frames in which to file a notice of claim and a lawsuit.
