Did A Government Employee Play A Role In Causing Your Injuries?

Individuals who are injured due to the negligent acts of private parties can sue those parties in civil court to recoup compensation for their injuries.

But what about an official acting in a governmental capacity? Can you sue such a party?

Understanding The Federal Tort Claims Act

Under the Federal Tort Claims Act, individuals in certain situations who suffer injury or property loss at the hands of federal government officials or federal government employees acting within the scope of their employment can bring civil suits against those parties for negligence.

Examples include:

  • Injuries caused by a physician in a veterans hospital
  • Slip-and-fall injuries in a post office
  • Injuries suffered in a public transportation bus accident
  • False arrest and imprisonment
  • Libel and slander

State Claims

The above instances apply to federal property and federal employees. However, California also has implemented laws regarding civil claims against state entities and state employees.
