The federal government is a large part of all of our lives. We can debate how much of a part, and debate whether that is good or bad, but the fact is that when any agency or entity is so much a part of our daily lives, there is always the chance of injury and liability.
Claims for injuries caused by the federal government can have a broad range. Liability can include veterans injured my malpractice in a VA hospital. It may include an injury suffered in an accident involving a post office vehicle, or a vehicle driven by a federal law enforcement agent. You may slip and fall in a government building, such as an office building or a courthouse.
