in Defense Base Act Claims - Defense Base Act Workers' Compensation Claims Lawyers
For years, civilian workers have been hired by American companies to work on overseas projects, worldwide. In Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries there are
currently thousands of civilian employees currently at work in the reconstruction of
war torn areas as well as assisting the American military.
In Iraq and Afghanistan, many companies including such examples as Halliburton,
Bechtel, Dyncorp, Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR), have been contracted by the U. S.
Government, which means that their workers are often placed in harm's way. In
other areas of the world, workers are hired to build United States embassies and
other U. S. government buildings in foreign countries from England to the Soviet
Union and Asia. US military forces are in service around the world in Japan, Korea,
Germany, Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Panama, Turkey, Hungary, Saudi Arabia,
Spain, Guam and many other countries. This means that whenever and wherever
civilian contractors are contracted to aid in the mission of the United States
government, whether there is an associated military presence or not, their employees
risk the possibility of on the job injuries.
With thirty years of compensation claims experience our practice has grown in the
representation of employees of American companies that conduct the business of the
US Government overseas. We currently represent numerous workers from around
the United States and are pursuing their cases which have risen due to a variety of
injuries, from head, back, neck, arm, shoulder, hand, knee and/or leg and foot
injuries. Among our cases are gunshot wounds that produced catastrophic injury and
even death. We believe in our ability to help Defense Base Act claimants or their
families in filing a claim and securing proper workers' compensation benefits due
under the Defense Base Act, which is a federal workers' compensation law covering
Our firm requires no up front attorney fees for DBA cases and the Defense Based
Act itself requires all lawyer fees to be approved. Our attorney fee is contingent
based and will only be owed if we are able to win and collect funds for you, which
means that any injured worker can afford to retain his or her own lawyer!
