Attorney Justin Ziegler has experience representing injured accident victims against the Federal Government. If you are seriously injured as the result of the negligence of the United States Federal Government (whether by a post office truck, U.S. employee driving a car during the course and scope of their employment, Department of Homeland Security, or any other federal employee), Mr. Ziegler will first file an administrative claim using the government’s approved Section 95 form. If the Federal government agency responsible for your personal injury doesn’t respond with six (6) months after filing the administrative claim, Mr. Ziegler will discuss with you the benefits of filing a lawsuit against the United States of America. According to Federal Statutes, an injured person must wait six months before suing the United States.
Mr. Ziegler recently settled a lawsuit against the United States for One hundred twenty five thousand dollars ($125,000.00) on behalf of a resident of Europe who was hit by a Federal customs and border patrol employee (driving a rental car) who, according to the United States, was in the course and scope of his employment. In this instance, Mr. Ziegler followed the Federal Torts Claims Act (FTCA) and waited six (6) months before suing the United States for the pedestrian’s personal injury [(two (2) surgeries to his tibia (shinbone)]. Because the US didn’t respond within the six months, Mr. Ziegler sued the USA. Mr. Ziegler recovered an additional One hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) from the insurance company for the rental car company who rented the car to the at fault driver in this case.
In Federal Torts case, it is important to demand as much as may be awarded by the judge as you will be limited to recover the amount which is placed on the Section 95 administrative claims form.
