Whether any or all of that is true or not may not matter to you when you are a seriously injured overseas contractor. What matters now is getting the medical treatment you need and getting the money benefits you deserve.
Are You an Injured Sierra Nevada Corporation Employee?
If you are or were an employee of Sierra Nevada Corporation and you were injured while overseas, you may be entitled to compensation benefits and medical treatment for your injury under the Defense Base Act.
What is the Defense Base Act?
The Defense Base Act covers injured defense contractors for work-related injuries by providing compensation benefits while employees are out of work, and medical treatment to help in the recovery process.
The Defense Base Act is different from regular state workers’ compensation. Under the DBA, a contractor is covered for all injuries that result from their employment abroad. There is no difference whether an employee gets injured while on a mission or while working out in the company gym, all injuries that result from time in the war zones or abroad are covered.
Many Sierra Nevada Corporation employees have been injured while working overseas in conflict zones.

Five tips that will help you right now - Win Your Sierra Nevada Corporation DBA Case
The way I see it - it is my job to help you get the medical treatment and money benefits that you deserve. So here are some of the tips that will help you right now.
First and foremost, tell the truth in every detail of your claim. Your credibility is extremely important, you must tell the truth so that adjusters, claims examiners, and judges want to help you. You can only help yourself by telling the truth.
This sounds simple, but you will see that the shark attorneys for the DBA insurance companies will try and twist what you say (and don’t say).
Second, report your injury as soon as possible. When you are diagnosed or find out you are injured as a result of your employment, report your injury. I suggest that you hire an honest DBA lawyer to report the injury for you if you are not still in theater.
Third, you are entitled to your own choice physician. The insurance company does not get to choose your doctor, you don’t have to use who they recommend. Choose your own doctor, who accepts workers’ compensation insurance, so that you are given the real attention that you need. You want a “patient advocate” not a doctor that is going to try and help the DBA insurance company. At the end of the day, all you want is a doctor that is going to call it the way they see it.
Fourth, do your homework and hire the best honest Defense Base Act attorney that will agree to take your case. I suggest that you kick the tires. Research who is the best honest DBA lawyer for you. What you are going to see is that in many situations the best DBA lawyer may not be close to you. Don’t hire a DBA lawyer just because they are close to where you live. Do your homework.
Fifth, I suggest that you read Bill Turley’s book Win Your Defense Base Act Case. You can order it on amazon.com or request a free copy from this website. The book is full of practical tips and insights into DBA cases.
In fact, I strongly suggest that you read the book before you speak to the insurance adjuster, sign any forms, choose your free choice physician or even hire a lawyer.
Not convinced? Check out the dozens of 5 star reviews of the book on amazon.com.
