"DBA Lawyer Straight Talk - No legal mumbo jumbo. Ever." DBA Lawyer - Bill Turley
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
My strong suggestion is that you immediately order a free copy of my DBA book - Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk. Roadmap to The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. My book is packed with great useful information that will help you win your DBA case. And, perhaps most importantly, will keep you from tanking your case.
Check out all the 5 star reviews for my book on Amazon.com. These reviews were written by folks like yourself, who have read my book.

Bagram Airfield - Civilian Contractor - Defense Base Act Claims - An Update
The largest United States base in Afghanistan, Bagram Air Base, is in Parwan Province. It is the country’s main logistics hub. American soldiers and overseas civilian contractors at Bagram are preparing an Afghan military police unit to eventually take responsibility for protecting the base, but that’s still a long ways off.
Bagram has come under frequent rocket fire at times. According to the New York Times, “Primarily our main concern out here is (indirect fire), whether it be mortars or rockets,” said Marine Capt. Doug Capra, the team’s joint terminal attack coordinator. Some weeks there are no attacks, while during others, up to five. “That is the primary threat that is constant for the area.” Based upon my conversations with folks actually working in Bagram - the New York Times has this spot on.
Recently a civilian contractor was killed after an "indirect fire attack," according to the Department of Defense.
Because of the recent rocket fire, Marines are doing patrols outside the wire. Both civilian security contractors (for example Dyncorp) and linguists (for example MEP) are working at Bagram. Many are outside the wire also. In full kit.
And based upon my conversations with civilian contractors that have been working at Bagram lately, there are a lot of other civilian contractors working at Bagram and Afghanistan.
All of these civilian contractors fall under the Defense Base Act. If you are injured, then you have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits under the DBA.
