Your personal injury lawyer will submit the Standard Form 95 to start the Federal Tort Claim process. One of the issues in preparing the form is to decide what amount to ask for. The video below describes two mistakes to avoid.
To win the best tort claim settlement, every part of the Federal Tort Claim process should be calculated to persuade.
The first person to persuade is the lawyer assigned to your case by the local United States Attorney’s office. Most cases settle, but if your case does not settle, then your case will go to trial.
Remember that any tort claim that is caused by the negligence of a Federal employee will not be decided by a jury, it will instead be decided by a Federal Judge sitting without a jury. Therefore, your presentation must be organized in a way that will help the Judge to decide in your favor. Making the best presentation of your case is the reason why you want to choose an experienced Federal Tort Claim attorney.
If you have a serious personal injury that was caused by the negligence of a Federal employee, you can contact the office of E. J. Simmons for a consultation.
