Need Help Filing Standard Form 95?
When an employee of the U.S. government injures someone through malpractice or negligence, the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is typically the statute that permits a claim to be brought against the government. This claim is typically commenced by filing a Standard Form 95, or SF 95.
An Overview Of Standard Form 95
The Standard Form 95 is relatively simple to fill out, and sometimes this deceives the injured person or family member into underappreciating its importance. The SF 95 is a legal document that formally commences a claim against the U.S. government, and the information written by the claimant will be scrutinized at all stages of the Federal Tort Claims Act process. It carries great legal significance and may be the difference between prevailing and failing.

Injured Military Personnel And SF 95
When a member of the armed forces is injured by negligence or medical malpractice committed by an employee of the government, the claim often arises under the Federal Tort Claims Act. However, in situations where the negligence or malpractice occurred outside the U.S., the Military Claims Act (MCA) is often the body of law that permits a claim to be brought against the government.
At McKeen & Associates, our military personal injury attorneys are adept at helping servicepeople with Standard Form 95 and the entire MCA process. Making a mistake early in the process can doom a claim, either early on or farther down the road. Our Michigan Military Claims Act lawyers help clients avoid the many pitfalls of injury claims against the U.S. government.
