What can I do if my Defense Base Act claim has been denied?

Talk to a Defense Base Act Attorney

While it’s not unusual for injured civilian contractors to run up against denials, delays, and sudden stops with their Defense Base Act (DBA) claims, these kinds of problems aren’t necessarily the last word. However, to make sure that you take steps to effectively fight a denial, the best course of action is to seek out the guidance of an attorney who has direct experience negotiating complicated DBA claims.

Why Seeking Legal Help Can Help You Win the Battle for Your Defense Base Act Benefits

Attorneys and legal teams who regularly negotiate and litigate DBA cases know that insurance companies may deny or stop benefits for injured civilian contractors at any time, even when there is no apparent reason for the denial. It’s a huge roadblock for many injured contractors across the nation, and many end up giving up on their claims that should get them the benefits they deserve.

However, experienced attorneys also know how to identify problems, take action to protect vulnerable contractors, and get the process moving again. If it turns out your claim has been denied for a legitimate reason, you can at the very least get answers about what went wrong. If your claim has been unfairly denied or delayed, then you can get the information and support you need to make things right and protect yourself.
