Nationwide Federal Tort Claims Act Representation
When you suffer injuries caused by an employee or agency of the United States government, the usual legal remedies will not be available to you. You will need to seek damages through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), which is a complicated legal process that many personal injury attorneys are not prepared to handle. You deserve advocates who are familiar with the intricacies of the FTCA and understand how to obtain the compensation you need to cover medical bills, lost income, and other losses. You need National Trial Law.
Our team handles FTCA claims nationwide, meaning we are ready to represent you no matter where you are. Our national trial lawyers have handled hundreds of administrative claims, lawsuits, and appeals, and our case results speak for themselves: We have set records and secured some of the largest settlements and judgments in the history of the FTCA. No matter the nature or extent of your injuries, we will rely on our Texas roots and national reach to provide you with the aggressive, driven representation needed to prevail. We go after the cases that matter, and we will leverage the full extent of our firm’s power, resources, and professional network to go the distance for you.
We Handle Military Medical Malpractice Cases Coast-to-Coast
If you or someone you love was injured due to medical malpractice in a military hospital or a federally funded clinic, your case will fall under the FTCA. We have extensive experience handling these cases nationwide and are not afraid to take on the Army, Navy, or Air Force. Our legal professionals are well-versed in efficiently resolving claims administratively, though we are not afraid to go to trial, and we have represented clients in appeals before the 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th, and 10th Circuits as well as the U.S. Supreme Court. We have even scored victories that have reversed decades of precedent, making a real difference in the lives of Americans who have suffered injuries in military healthcare facilities. Whether your newborn suffered a birth injury or your military doctor caused you injury by deviating from the standard of care, we will fight to facilitate an optimal resolution, including full and fair compensation for your losses. Having recovered millions of dollars for our clients, our firm has found success in major cases across the country.
Sutherland Springs Mass Shooting
Our attorneys led the charge in a $230m judgment for victims of the Sutherland Springs Church mass shooting. After a complex, two-part trial, Federal Judge Xavier Rodriguez found the United States Air Force 60% at fault and ordered them to pay $230 million in damages to survivors and family of the mass shooting.
VA Medical Malpractice
We obtained a $10,500,000 settlement against the Department of Veterans Affairs for causing and then failing to treat a veteran’s renal failure in Missouri. This is the highest FTCA settlement in Missouri history and one of the highest pre-trial FTCA settlements nationwide (we believe in the top 10 for pretrial settlements).
VA Medical Malpractice
We received a $21,592,643 trial judgment and our client recovered $15,884,511.98 in trust with lifetime benefits on behalf of a veteran who suffered catastrophic brain damage at the Manchester VA Hospital.
This was the largest individual personal injury award in New Hampshire history. We won $21.5 million in damages for veteran Michael Farley and his family for medical malpractice.
