Government Vehicle Injury Lawyers

Before passage of the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) in 1946, someone who suffered an injury due to the negligence of the military or government, including in motor vehicle accidents, had no cause of action against the government because it was immune from lawsuits by individuals. With the passage of the FTCA, Congress recognized that victims of military vehicle accidents should be allowed to sue for damages and recovery.
