What is Meant by the Requirement That I “Exhaust my Administrative Remedies” Before Filing Suit?

The Federal Tort Claims Act requires that before a suit ay be filed in court, the claimant must first present the claim in writing to the appropriate federal agency and follow detailed procedural rules while the agency investigates your allegations and considers whether to settle or deny your claim. The procedures for this are different depending on which federal agency is involved. They have six months to make up their minds to settle or deny your case. If they deny the case then the next step is to file a law suit in court.
