My Best Advice
Nothing is more important when handling your Defense Base Act case, then speaking the truth. People who believe if they sugar coat their case, it will help them win their case. Wrong.
You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects your not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.

Fluor Daniel Corp.: Non-Combat Support, Serious Injuries, DBA Workers And Such
Fluor Daniel Corp will tell you the U.S. Army relies on commercial contractors to provide non-combat support services to deployed U.S. DOD forces and other government agencies. Contractors like Fluor must be capable of mobilizing thousands of personnel, support equipment, and supplies virtually anywhere in the world on very short notice. The nature of the services includes providing logistics, base-camp construction, housing, transportation, fuel, meals, laundry, and recreation. Fluor does all of this.
Fluor has provided services to the U.S. military at Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, and across the globe All of these workers are covered by the Defense Base Act.
These DBA workers are construction workers, construction engineers and superintendents, project controls, project managers, quality, site managers, HSE managers, logistics support, supply type workers, security contractors, firefighters, laundry service workers, food services support workers, water works workers, vector control sanitation workers, billeting employees, maintenance workers, and power generation support workers.

Serious Injuries, DBA Workers And Such
Unfortunately, based upon what we see, Fluor Defense Base Act Workers get seriously injured. In 2012 (so far), , more Fluor workers had Defense Base Act injuries reported to the United States Department of Labor than all but 2 other DBA contractors. There have been over 1,000 reported injuries of Fluor workers in the first 9 months of 2012. There have been untold injuries that have not been reported to the Department of Labor. For example, PTSD claims are notoriously under-reported. Truth is, these DBA workers get seriously injured.
Make no mistake about it - - working for Fluor can be deadly. According to the United States Department of Labor, 20 Fluor DBA workers died in 2012 alone.

That experience helps him win Defense Base Act cases.
