“If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” - Gordon A Eadie
When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more then the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straight forward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugar coat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get go.
The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in.

AECOM - Global Leaders
AECOM says they are a global leader in providing fully integrated technical and management support for a broad range of markets. That all may be true. AECOM may even be all over the world. But AECOM is also all over Afghanistan. AECOM has recently had over 5,000 workers spread across 50 locations .
What AECOM has going on today is unknown. Other than they sure seem to still be in Afghanistan. One thing is clear however, based upon what we see, AECOM workers are coming home with serious injuries.
AECOM has also been in Iraq. AECOM claims to work with the Iraq Parliamentary offices. What that means is anybody’s guess. Except, of course, AECOM workers that are coming home from Iraq with serious injuries.
Department of Labor’s Report Card
What we know is that AECOM is on the United States Department of Labor’s Top Ten DBA Employer’s Injury/ Death Report Card. AECOM is going neck and neck with Triple Canopy for 6th and 7th, respectively. And just behind Mission Essential Personnel.
I bring up Mission Essential Personnel (MEP) and Triple Canopy for a reason. Let’s talk about the “under-reporting” of DBA injuries and deaths. My office has represented so many MEP and Triple Canopy DBA workers. We are talking about a lot of seriously injured folks. It sure seems to me that MEP and Triple Canopy are seriously under-reporting their DBA injuries.
Fact is, it also seems that way with AECOM. My take, all of these DBA employers are playing fast and loose with the reporting requirements. It seems to me that they don’t report claims that they are denying. And they deny legitimate claims - left and right. It sure seems like they are only reporting injuries that occur due to war hazards.
We are getting a lot of calls from AECOM Defense Base Act workers. I realize this is because my law firm is the biggest DBA law firm on the West Coast, but trends are trends. In other words, there is a reason why AECOM is on the Department of Labor Top Ten DBA Employer Injury/ Death Report Card list.
AECOM - Dangerous and Deadly
Fact is working in Afghanistan and Iraq is dangerous and can be deadly. When you are seriously injured or a loved one is killed while working for AECOM in Afghanistan or Iraq - you are thrust into the Defense Base Act system. You didn’t sign up for this. It wasn’t in the brochure.
Now you are in a battle with the insurance company for Defense Base Act benefits. Now is the time to lawyer-up. Whether you are getting benefits or whether they have already cut you off. It is always best to lawyer-up early.
You need to hire the best DBA lawyers you can find.
