G4S, the Defense Base Act, Winning with the Truth
I'm a Defense Base Act attorney. When it comes to representing seriously injured overseas civilian contractors, my firm is one of the top two largest law firms in the world.
We represent seriously injured G4S employees that are injured overseas. If this is you, I suggest you read on.
It's not so simple
Don't Think this is Going to be as Simple as it Seems - It's All about Telling the Truth
Before I go into the details about G4S, I must tell you the most important thing is your credibility. The one thing that will determine whether you are going to win or lose your DBA case is whether the Judge believes you or not. If the Judge believes you, you will probably win your case. You are running downhill when the Judge likes you and believes you. I can't overstate this.
On the flip side, when the Judge doesn’t believe you—you will in all probability—lose your DBA case. Seems simple, but it can be pretty complicated.
This is why it is imperative for you to tell the truth about everything. You’ve heard the saying: “don’t sweat the small stuff”. Terrible advice for a DBA case because the “small stuff” can affect your credibility at trial. That is exactly what the company lawyers will use to try and win against you.
What I see time and again is the DBA insurance company and their shark lawyers are going to lay trap after trap. Problem is, you are going to see them until is is way too late. You only get one or two "sorrys" with the Judge. if that, depending on what the issue is. Fact is, you don't want or need to go here. I cover all of this case-killer stuff in my book.
It really is the "small stuff"
Win Your Defense Base Act Case goes through—in detail—all the “small stuff” the DBA insurance company lawyer is going to do to try and derail your DBA case. In short, all the tricks and traps they use to beat you and your case in court.
Telling the truth: I know I keep hammering at that, seems simple but it is anything but simple. It really is all the “small stuff” (that well meaning folks don’t think of) that ends up costing you dearly on an otherwise legitimate case.
Let’s talk about G4S and The Defense Base Act
According to their website, “G4S is the leading global integrated security company, specialising in the provision of security products, services and solutions.”
“G4S works to safeguard the welfare and prosperity of millions of people worldwide – helping to create safer and better environments in which people live and work”
“With operations on six continents and 623,000 employees, we are the leading global integrated security company.
Our strategy is customer focused across a wide range of industries and commercial and government customers.
We have a diverse range of services to meet our customers requirements and have a broad geographic footprint to meet demand for security around the world. “
You know what? I don't doubt that any of this is true. It's probably all true.
What I Do Know is Folks Like You Are The Heart and Soul of G4S
And what else is true is that without its employees, G4S wouldn't be the company that it is. That is, the men and women that do the day to day work at G4S These are my clients. You folks are the heart and soul of G4S.
You want fluff or brutal, frank truth?
I Don't Pull Punches
If you want beating around the bush, you have come to the wrong place. If you want brutal, frank truth, no matter what - stick around. Check out my stuff.
What you are going to see is that there are plenty of lawyers on the Internet that call themselves G4S Defense Base Act attorneys that will tell you what you want to hear. That isn't me. Not even close.
Your next step after telling the truth
If you are injured while working overseas for G4S, then your injury probably falls under the Defense Base Act.
I strongly recommend you read my book Win Your Defense Base Act Case before you sign any forms, give any statements, talk to the adjuster or even hire the wrong DBA Lawyer.
San Diego may be a long way from where you live
In all probability, I’m located a long way from where you live. I am based in San Diego, California.
The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act. I have been handling Longshore Act cases since 1987. With thousands of shipyard workers, San Diego has the largest shipyard on the West Coast. I was handling these cases long before the United States sent civilian workers to Iraq and Afghanistan.
There are many former military folks that were recruited to work as overseas civilian contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. When they returned to San Diego and California with serious DBA injuries, they were referred to me.
Defense Base Act cases are what we do. We represent DBA workers from across America and from around the world.
Today, my law firm represents more Defense Base Act workers than any other law firm on the West Coast. I am told by folks that know, my law firm is one of the top two largest DBA law firms in the world that represents injured overseas contractors.
