The Firm recently settled a Federal Tort Claims Act case for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident for $125,000. Injuries included a rib fracture and strain and sprain injuries to the knee and back. Personal injury claims against Federal, State and local governments and entities are permitted by specific Tort Claims Acts. The Tort Claims Acts include specific “notice” provisions and other limitations that must be complied with in order to recover. The specific “notice” and other limitations are specific to each State, resulting in significant differences between the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and State of New Jersey.
