Federal Tort Claim statute of limitations/notice
Can you tell me the time frame on a Federal tort case for notice, etc.?
Answer: It is a little confusing. The time for notice to the federal government is the same as the statute of limitations of the state in which the claim arises. So, in Oklahoma, for a tort claim, you have two years to give notice. There is then no time limit on how long the federal agency can mess with it. However, once the claim is finally denied, you have six months from the date of mailing of the notice of denial to file suit, per 28 U.S.C. §2401(b).
