Injured Longshoreman, Maritime Industry or Dock Worker? Let Us Prove Your Defense Base Act Claim!

If you have a longshoreman, dock or harbor job and got injured working for a private employer under contract with the U.S. government, you've come to the right place. You are most likely protected by the Defense Base Act (DBA) and we have over 30 years of experience defending DBA claim cases for injured longshoremen just like you. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation (DLHWC) Defense Base Act (DBA) provides Workers Compensation benefits to civilian employees working under a contract with the U.S. government on national defense or public works projects outside U.S. military bases or overseas in U.S. Territories. However, you might be finding it very difficult to obtain the injured contractor compensation you deserve and may even have a denied DBA claim on your hands. We've been fighting for longshoremen and dock workers like you for over 30 years, and we will fight for your justice too!

Defense Base Act Claims Need a Tough Longshoremen Injury Attorney Fighting For Justice

If you are an overseas U.S. employee who was unfairly fired from you job, your boss may say you quit voluntarily or violated work regulations. This is very common and when you're out of the country, it can be doubly hard to defend your rights. If you were injured while working for the U.S. overseas and your Workers Compensation claim was rejected or if you were terminated from your U.S. government job but are being denied unemployment compensation, we can help. As seasoned State and Federal worker injury attorneys, we will represent you in a DBA Work Comp hearing or job termination court case, fighting for your rights and aggressively pursuing the benefits you deserve.
