"If you are a seriously injured Defense Base Act worker - you need to know the facts of life. We give it too you straight. No sugar added. No lawyer talk, no double talk. Just good old fashioned, unsweetened truth." - Defense Base Act Attorney Bill Turley
The First Thing You Must Do
The first thing you must do is always tell the truth. No matter what it is you are worried about, you must always be honest and never sugar coat anything to the judge or you attorney. If you do, then you will loose your case. Trust me, I have seen it time and time again. Do not be that dishonest person who loses their DBA case.
Before you even think about signing any forms from the DBA insurance company, you need to do your research. Order my FREE book, WinYour Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve.

What to do?
If you are a seriously injured Defense Base Act worker you are probably concerned about what impact your injuries are going to have on your economic future. What are you and your family going to do if you can’t earn the kind of money that you were able to make as a DBA worker? Where do you start?
These questions are probably already running through their mind:
"Should I be speaking to the Defense Base Act insurance adjuster?"
"Should I give a recorded statement? How do I make sure I am treating with the best doctors?"
"How do I find the right doctors?"
"Do I even need a DBA Attorney?"
"Should I hire a local Michigan Lawyer or a National Defense Base Act Lawyer?"
Why Us Being Based In San Diego Is A Benefit To You
We are based in San Diego, California. This is a benefit to you. Few Defense Base Act lawyers have been handling DBA cases longer than us. The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act. Bill Turley has been handling Longshore Act cases since 1987. Because San Diego has the largest shipyard on the west coast with thousands of shipyard workers, Bill gained valuable experience with these cases long before the United States sent civilian workers to Iraq and Afghanistan. That experience helps him win Defense Base Act cases.
San Diego is the biggest military town in the United States. The Defense Contracting Companies hired thousands of San Diego based ex-military types to work in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were there for them and their family’s after they were seriously injured.

You Need To Take Action Now!
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.
