Iraq Injury

Civilian Contractor Injuries

If you are a person who is injured or has a relative who has died while working as a civilian contractor in Iraq, Afghanistan, or any of the many other countries in which the United States Military operates bases, you may be entitled to benefits under the Defense Base Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1651.  

The Defense Base Act Benefits

The Defense Base Act entitles persons to benefits that are often greater than state workers' compensation benefits. Under the DBA, attorney representation is free to claimants. No attorney's fees come from a worker's benefits or settlement. Our fees are awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor and charged to the Carrier based upon our reasonable time spent on the case, and only if we prevail.

In many cases, a worker is injured and begins receiving benefits but the insurance carrier fails or refuses to pay the maximum amount of benefits that the injured person is entitled to under the Defense Base Act. It is our job as Defense Base Act lawyers to fight for injured civilian contractors in order to ensure that they receive all the benefits to which they are entitled. 

We formerly represented insurance companies in DBA claims brought by civilian contractors injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. As defense counsel, we had the opportunity to work against many lawyers that represent injured workers. As a result of this experience, we gained a valuable appreciation for how best to achieve victory for our clients.

If you are a person who is injured or has a relative who has died while working as a civilian contractor, we would be honored to discuss your claim with you today. We accept Defense Base Act cases nationwide.
