Helpful Advice

When it comes to the ins and outs of filing a DBA claim, the first step you must take, is always tell the truth. Under no circumstances should you ever sugarcoat anything. The moment you start to over-exaggerate your injury, is the moment you can kiss your case good bye. Count on it. I have seen it happen to many hard working civilian contractors before. Never tell a lie, and always tell the truth. Your credibility with the Defense Base Act insurance company and the Judge depend on it.

Time Limits and the Defense Base Act

If you’re a contractor covered under the Defense Base Act (DBA), you might be surprised to find out that you have a limited time to file a claim for benefits after you are hurt at work, and missing one deadline could completely wreck your claim. To help you avoid problems, here’s a quick overview of what you need to know about time limits and DBA claims.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Defense Base Act Claim?

Generally, you have one year from the date of injury to file a claim for benefits under the Defense Base Act. However, in certain circumstances, the time you have to file a claim may vary, and there could be other filing deadlines you must also meet in order to successfully pursue a DBA claim.

How Can I Get Clear Answers About Time Limits in My Specific Defense Base Act Claim?

The best way to get clear answers about the specifics of your Defense Base Act claim is to discuss your concerns directly with an experienced DBA attorney. By carefully reviewing the specific details of your injury and type of claim, an attorney can quickly give you detailed answers about the time limits that might apply to your claim and what you will need to do to meet them.   

If you’ve been injured while working as a civilian contractor, don’t risk waiting too long to get the answers you need. Request your free copy of our book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case, or talk directly with our experienced San Diego legal team today.
