"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."
- Henry David Thoreau
The mistake that most injured Defense Base Act contractors make is not telling the truth. The moment a lie about your case comes out, is the moment you can say goodbye to it. The worse thing you could do for your DBA case is not telling the honest truth.
No matter what it is, you must be up front and honest about every single detail with your attorney. It will not only help your case, but it could be the difference between winning or losing your case.
Most folks do not even know where to start with their Defense Base Act Case once they are injured. I go over every step in my free book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical and Treatment And Money You and Your Family Deserve.
It is full of helpful and useful information for folks just like you. Check out the 5 Star Amazon Reviews too, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Why Should I Hire The Turley & Mara Law Firm When You Are In California?
We get calls from Defense Base Act workers that have hired local attorneys. It’s usually the same type call:
- “My lawyer screwed up my case, can you fix it?”
- “My benefits got cut off and my lawyer doesn’t seem like he knows what he’s doing?”
- “My lawyer stopped taking my calls.”
- “I got referred to a local workers compensation lawyer, he said he could handle my case. Can you help me?”
Look, there may very well be good DBA lawyers in Indiana. If there are, we don’t know about them. In the meantime, you can hire a local attorney that is probably going to cost you a lot of money or you can hire an attorney that you know is going to have the experience to successfully handle your DBA case.

You Need To Take Action
Your employer/ carrier is obligated to provide you reasonable medical treatment and temporary total disability benefits under the Defense Base Act. Too often the carrier will arbitrarily refuse to pay or stop paying for medical treatment and will stop your workers' compensation checks. The insurance carrier will controvert your DBA claim.
Doing nothing is not the best option. If your Defense Base Act medical benefits or workers compensation - TTD checks - are denied or the insurance carrier refuses to pay for your medical treatment or TTD you need to take action. Now.
