Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA):

Suing a federal government entity for damages in a personal injury claim is more challenging than suing a private citizen or corporation. The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is a highly complex law that allows specific types of lawsuits against a federal government entity and federal employees who have acted within the scope of employment while causing injuries, but certain strict rules must be followed.

For example, if you fall on a slippery patch in the post office because the janitor employed by the post office was negligent, you will need to follow the FTCA. Similarly, if you are a veteran suffering from a brain tumor and a Veterans Administration hospital doctor misdiagnosed you with PTSD, you would need to follow the FTCA to bring a medical malpractice claim.
