Our Attorneys have successfully handled Federal Tort Claims

Our Attorneys have successfully handled Federal Tort Claims for individuals who have been injured in car crashes, slip, and falls, as well as medical malpractice. we have handled hundreds of Federal Tort Claims, throughout Texas. I am familiar with the Federal Tort Claims Act, the administrative claims process, and the way that the United States Attorney’s office defends these claims. I have handled many of these claims for individuals who have been injured as a result of the negligence of the Federal Government, and other attorneys have referred their clients, to me, to handle their Federal Tort claims. personal injury lawyers - slip and fall

Some attorneys do not like to handle these claims because they are not familiar with the procedural requirements. Other attorneys do not like to handle these cases because the law limits the contingency fee that can be charged to either twenty percent or twenty-five percent, (28 U.S.C § 2678) instead of the 33 1/3 percent contingency fee, which is the maximum permitted, under most circumstances, all of my contingency fee agreements include the statutory fee limitations, so that the client is informed about them, at the beginning of the case. I have never charged a client more than the US Code allows for handling a Federal Tort Claim.

The Federal Tort Claims act involves several procedures that are different than the procedures, which are used to handle a claim against an ordinary individual:

1. A proper administrative claim must be filed with the appropriate Federal Agency within two years.

2. The time for filing a complaint is governed by when the Federal Agency denies the claim. In some cases, you may have to file your case as soon as six months after your accident, and in other cases, you may have more than two years from the date of your accident to file your claim.

3. You must file your complaint in the appropriate United States District Court. There have been cases where this step was not completed properly and the claimant’s case was dismissed.

4. You must serve your complaint on the appropriate U. S. Attorney and the Attorney General of the United States. Three are cases where this step was not completed properly and the claimant’s case was dismissed.

5. The Federal Government is not an insurance company. A Federal Tort claim can only be made if the Federal employee was acting in the “scope of his employment”. In some cases, the Federal Government will not be responsible for the actions of its employee and you may have to file a complaint against the individual in the appropriate court. Sometimes the statute of limitations against the individual employee, maybe different than the statute of limitations against the Federal Government.

6. You are not entitled to a jury trial. Your claim will be decided by a United States District Court Judge, without a jury.

7. The maximum attorney’s fee is 20% for cases that are settled before suit is instituted and 25% for cases that are put into a suit. (28 USC §2678)

If you have been injured as the result of the negligence of a Federal Employee, please call our Law Firm to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

BUG KNOWLEDGE – Pest Control


Bees, Wasps, and Hornets – The Flying Stingers We Fear

These are pests that we have a love-hate relationship with. Yes, we love to see all the pollinators doing what they do best and that’s keeping flowers and plants, well pollinated. They fly from flower to flower buzzing happily doing what they’re meant to do and doing it very well. We remain quietly at a safe distance, taking time to smell the flowers and watching nature hard at work when suddenly, much to our dismay, we are noticed and now we get attacked and stung.

Wasps (Polistes gallicus) in the nest.

You may ask, “What did I do?” Sorry, you’re not the first nor will you be the last person stung without provocation. It could be a color we wore or a cologne/perfume we have on or maybe a sudden movement. Who knows? All we know is, we are now a victim of some little insect’s right for protection. Then we turn and notice a large wasp nest in the eave of our home. What now?

Bees are probably the nicest of the stingers. They are a social little bunch and tolerate a lot before attacking. One good reason is they can only sting once, yes it’s a kamikaze attack for them and they’re not in too much of a hurry to end it. I think their view is “so many flowers and too little time to pollinate them all” so they don’t want to give it all up on a whim. You have to be threatening the hive or them before the sting comes.

Many mistakes a Yellow Jacket for a Bee. Bees are smaller and are fuzzy with orange and black features. Yellow Jackets are not fuzzy and are yellow and black. Bees orange, and Yellows Jackets, yellow. (For emphasis)

Yellow Jackets are by far the meanest of the group. They most definitely attack without provocation and unlike bees, they can sting multiple times. Wasps also can sting multiple times and there is a wide variety of them around. Also, there is a large variety of hornets but don’t forget the feisty bumblebee. He’s an ill-tempered little bully too.

The question asked earlier was what to do once your home has been invaded by these stinging pests. Do not attempt the extermination yourself. You may find yourself getting more than you bargained for and you or a family member could even end up in a hospital. Call a professional exterminator for the Yellow Jackets, Wasps, Hornets or Bees. You may even consider an experienced Bee Keeper for the Bees. We, as exterminators don’t really like to kill Bees but if they are a danger to you and your family, you come first.

So think safety first, not always money. There are enough Pest Control professionals around to get a good price. Be sure to always ask them if they are licensed and insured.
