According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on July 31, 2014, Heather Boemia sustained injuries in an automobile collision caused by the negligence of a federal employee, Cynthia Aguilar. The suit states that plaintiffs' counsel on their behalf submitted several formal claims to the United States Postal Service via Form 95 earlier this year, which were timely received by the USPS.
