Federal Tort Claim Act claims (FTCA)

We also handle Federal Tort Claim ACT claims (FTCA) on behalf of injured sailors, and Veterans and their families who have suffered injuries committed by the negligence of the Veteran's Administration Hospital and Clinics, and all branches of the military, including the Military Sea-lift Command. These claims range from injuries on board vessels to medical malpractice claims against the Veterans Administration hospitals and clinics.

The Federal Tort Claims Act("FTCA") is a 1946 federal statute that permits private parties to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States. Historically, citizens have not been able to sue their state—a doctrine referred to as sovereign immunity. The FTCA constitutes a limited waiver of sovereign immunity, permitting citizens to pursue some tort claims against the government.

I lost most of my vision from an accident at sea. Gordon handled my case with motivation and haste that I could imagine would have been the way he would have handled it if it had been him who was injured. I was ver impressed by how much he cared and especially his work ethic.

Gordon helped me and family get through a very hard time. I was severely injured, and Gordon was able to settle my case for more than i was hoping for. If anything else happens he will be the first person I call.
