“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure you do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth - just the way that I would want it.” - Bill Turley
The First Thing You Must Do
The first thing you must do is always tell the truth. No matter what it is you are worried about, you must always be honest and never sugarcoat anything to the judge or you attorney. If you do, then you will lose your case. Trust me, I have seen it time and time again. Do not be that person.

Everything You Do Could Impact Your Claim
As you navigate your injury claim under the Defense Base Act (DBA), you are likely talking to some of the adjusters and case managers throughout the process. Although much of what happens in your case is decided by the facts of the accident and your injury, keep in mind that everything you do could have an impact on the success of your claim—and that includes the relationship you build with the DBA adjuster.
Be Polite, But Don’t Be Too Friendly With the DBA Adjuster
You should definitely make an effort to be polite when dealing with the insurance company, but don’t let your guard down and get too chummy. It’s too easy to accidentally get too chatty and say something that could later be used against you to minimize your claim.
Don’t Take Out Your Anger on the Adjuster in Your Defense Base Act Case
While you shouldn’t be too friendly, you should also be careful not to be rude. Negotiating your recovery is a stressful event, and demands from the DBA insurer can be frustrating. But no matter how much you want to yell and pound the phone, remember that it will only give the insurance company more ammunition to use against you.
If you are having trouble finding the right relationship with your DBA adjuster, remember to stick to the facts, and reach out for legal help when you start feeling pressured or overwhelmed.
