Delays, Denials, and Stopped DBA Benefits
The insurance companies and employers who handle Defense Base Act (DBA) claims benefit when claims are denied or delayed, and they don’t necessarily have to tell you why they’ve decided to stop your benefits or reject your claim. While there can be legitimate reasons for these kinds of complications, the simple truth is that these companies sometimes delay or deny claims “just because”—but you shouldn’t have to take mystery for an answer.
Nailing Down “Just Because” and Moving Forward With a Defense Base Act Claim
If you are having trouble getting the benefits you depend on after an injury, don’t hesitate to seek out an attorney who can help you nail down the real reason for a denial and strengthen your claim. An experienced attorney can help any time you run into complications, but that hands-on legal help is especially important when you can’t seem to figure out why:
You were denied benefits outright.
Your benefits were suddenly stopped.
Your claim is continually delayed.
There are many reasons why DBA claims are denied, but civilian contractors are often faced with the reality that benefits may be stopped, delayed, or denied by the insurance company at any time—“just because.” Fortunately, contractors can also take action to fight for what they deserve after a denial.
My Best Advice
Nothing is more important when handling your case, then speaking the truth. People who believe if they sugarcoat their case, it will help them win their case. Wrong.
You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects you’re not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.
My Second Best Advice
Civilian contractors are vulnerable to tricks and traps after an injury, and many are uninformed about their rights. Take a moment to request your free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case, and start taking control of your claim for benefits.
