If you have been injured through the negligence of a postal employee or federal worker, you may be entitled to compensation. Under a statutory scheme called the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), you have two years to file a claim for damages administratively with the federal government. The government then has six months to adjudicate your claim. If your claim is not settled or resolved administratively, you have six months to initiate suit in federal court. Mr. Smith can assist you with the pursuit of your claims, having administratively adjudicated and defended the Postal Service in hundreds of FTCA matters. Mr. Smith will use his experience and the resources of Wheeler Upham to ensure that you receive the recovery you deserve. FTCA cases are handled on a contingency fee basis: 20% of your recovery after costs if your case is settled administratively and 25% if you recover after litigation is filed.
