Our Defense Base Act Attorneys Fight For Your Rights

Our law firm handles Defense Base Act claims for workers injured overseas including but not limited to those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan and many other parts of the world.

Defense Base Act Attorneys

 Our law firm handles Defense Base Act claims for workers injured overseas including but not limited to those injured in Iraq and Afghanistan and many other parts of the world.  These civilian employees were hired by companies in the United States to work on military bases, in public works for the government and other issues related to national defense.  All types of workers are covered under the Defense Base Act including but not limited to security guards, support personnel and drivers. Unfortunately, in a typical day, especially in a war zone, employees get injured and require the attention of medics in those countries.  Oftentimes the injured worker is sent to their home country in order to obtain medical attention. 

Our firm can assist in attempting to secure medical care for the injured worker and payment of compensation benefits while unable to work or when suffering a wage/earnings loss compared to what the worker was earning prior to his/her date of accident.    

We have grown in the years since our law firm’s founding. We have seven attorneys and many staff members ready and able to assist you in the handling of your claim.  Our attorneys have a combined experience in representing injured workers of more than 100 years.  Our commitment to our clients always remains the same.  We give each and every one of clients the personal attention they deserve. 

Skills And Experience You Can Trust

We have the resources of a large firm, but we offer personal attention to all of our clients during the legal process. Our firm is dedicated to making things easier for you. We understand that legal issues can arise at any time and you may need to ask our attorneys questions. Therefore, unlike most law firms, we maintain an open door policy: You may call us at any time day or night to speak directly with an attorney about your concerns. For the same reason, our attorneys are willing to meet with clients at their homes or in hospitals.

All our consultations are confidential and free of charge. Our lawyers at our law offices can speak with you about your concerns in Spanish and Creole, in addition to English. If you or a loved one have been injured while working overseas on a U.S. military base or working under a U.S. government contract, contact us toll free at 877-448-8585 or via our online contact form.

Helping Civilian Workers Injured in Afghanistan Secure DBA Assistance

There are a number of circumstances that have caused civilian contract personnel to be injured in Afghanistan, but all of them can be similarly overwhelming when it comes to filing a DBA injury claim.

If You Were Injured in Japan You May Be Entitled to DBA Compensation

There are many longshore and harbor workers who have been injured in Japan in a variety of circumstances. A DBA injury is a serious matter, and any civilian contract personnel who have sustained such an accident should be afforded the medical care and resources they need. Too often, however, injured contractors are expected to file their claim and navigate the system on their own. This would be a difficult task to require of anybody, but it is even more stressful for a recently hurt person.

Helping Injured Civilian Contractors Serving in Kuwait Receive DBA Care

Much of the United States’ presence in Kuwait is dedicated to maintaining air forces in the area. These places house countless military aircrafts, and as such, require contractor visits on a regular basis for maintenance, repair and cleaning.

Helping Injured Civilian Workers Receive DBA Protection in Diego Garcia

Diego Garcia is one of the few international military bases in which civilian contract personnel outnumber actual service members. The high number of contract workers means that reports of being injured in Diego Garcia are not uncommon.
