You Need More Than the Bare Minimum to Win a Defense Base Act Case

Defense Base Act Lawyer Straight Talk - "No lawyer-talk, double-talk. Ever."  DBA Lawyer - Bill Turley

Truth Matters
When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more then the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straight forward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugar coat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get go.

The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in. 

Remember the DBA insurance company is not your friend. I strongly suggest you order a free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. The book has plenty of great 5 Star reviews on Amazon, and it is a guide to only help you succeed in your case. 

Trust me. My only goal here is to make sure honest hard working folks like you, do not get ripped off by these companies.

It isn't going to be easy

I would like to tell you that winning your Defense Base Act case will be a walk in the park. No problemo. Easy - peasy.  But I can't.  Putting aside all the legal mumbo-jumbo - winning your DBA case is not going to be easy. No matter what. 

When you open up a case under the Defense Base Act (DBA) because you got hurt overseas, it’s not as simple as looking at the minimum amount of evidence you need and presenting that. Unlike other kinds of official applications or formal paperwork you have to deal with in your daily life, “just enough” evidence is usually not going to be enough to help you win your DBA case.

You Need to Build a Defense Base Act Case That Will Stand Up to the Fight

You know you and your family deserve money and benefits after you get seriously hurt. It probably seems like the process should be formal and simple—just filling out the right paperwork and going to the right court dates. However, you should know that insurance companies sometimes defend these cases aggressively, and the bare minimum evidence needed to prove your DBA case might make your case strong enough to stand up against DBA insurance companies and their shark attorneys:

  • Claiming that you’re lying about what happened or how badly you were hurt
  • Denying your injuries ever happened
  • Twisting your words to weaken your claim
  • Making you look bad in front of the Judge
  • Making a big deal out of seemingly minor details about your case

It’s hard to get the evidence you need to win a DBA case after you’re no longer overseas. If you’ve been seriously hurt or become ill while working overseas, start by reading through a free copy of our book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap to the Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve, to learn more about what you can expect from your case. Then, talk directly with an attorney who has had a lot of experience with civilian contractors’ DBA cases. An experienced attorney can help you start building your case from the beginning and nailing down exactly what kinds of documentation you might need.

Some good advice

Whether you have a great case or a not so strong case, the DBA insurance company lawyers are going to attack you and your credibility. The better you case, the more likely this attack on you is going to be their main defense.  Because of this - you always have to protect your credibility with a vengeance. Always, always tell the truth.  The more painful the "truth" - the more you have to tell it.  My book will explain to you how to keep the insurance company sharks from setting up you and your case like a bowling pin.  Because even well meaning folks get caught in their time tested traps.
