Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

If you are in need of FTCA attorneys, there are things that you will want to look into before making your final decision on who to hire. There are many factors that can affect your decision such as previous experience and online reviews. These are things that can help to determine which one is right for you. Many lawyers advertise their services without always considering how they will work with you during the process of your case, so it’s important to research these things before choosing who you will hire as your lawyer. Contact an attorney today at Cohen & Cohen and find out what they can do for you!

What is an FTCA lawyer?

An FTCA lawyer is a lawyer that specializes in cases filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). A FTCA claim basically says that an individual or organization was negligent, which caused harm to you. One example of an FTCA claim is when a medical professional delivers incorrect medical treatment and causes injury to the patient. In this case, the injured party can bring a lawsuit for damages through the government’s trustee program. If successful, you could receive monetary damages up to $250,000 and if there are no less than 50 people impacted by the incident, you could potentially receive punitive damages as well.

You Should Use an Attorney

The FTCA provides a legal recourse to fight the federal government when they are negligent or you have been wronged in some way. However, hiring an attorney is necessary in order to file a claim and represent your case. Every case is different so it is difficult to say exactly what constitutes negligence, but an attorney can help assess your situation and determine if the FTCA applies in your case. The benefits of having a competent attorney by your side can be extraordinary and in certain cases an attorney can help protect you from double-jeopardy. Consult with an FTCA attorney today to find out how they can help with your issue!

Types of FTCA Lawyers

You need an attorney to help you understand if the employee was negligent in their actions. FTCA lawyers will not only review the facts of your case, but they will also make a recommendation as to whether or not it would be worth filing a claim with the government. Attorneys usually work on a contingency basis, meaning that you do not have to pay them unless you receive compensation from the government as well. If for some reason your case does not result in any payment, then a lawyer will likely request upfront payments which will be applied towards expenses that were made during the time spent working on your case.

There are three different types of attorneys: those who only deal with one specific area (such as nursing home abuse), those who deal with all areas and those who specialize in criminal law and work closely with law enforcement. It is important that you find a lawyer that specializes in your kind of case. If you believe that you are in need of FTCA attorneys, contact Cohen & Cohen today for help.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
