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. Accidents that occur on the Diego Garcia military base should count as a DBA injury and therefore qualify longshore and harbor workers for the benefits outlined in the Defense Base Act. There are often complications when navigating such a system overseas. That’s why Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A. offers comprehensive legal services to clients who have been in an accident at Diego Garcia. Injured workers are often entitled to a number of benefits, potentially including:
Without an attorney, you could be fighting for these benefits on your own. Hiring representation will ensure that you have an advocate on your side who is fighting for your interests and the compensation you may be entitled to receive.
