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. Thus, lt makes sense that The Turley Law Firm is America’s Leading Defense Base Act Law Firm.
Today, The Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC represents seriously injured Defense Base Act workers and their family’s across the USA and around the world. We can help you and our family get the compensation you deserve.
Here is a sample of our great free content:
The Defense Base Act
The Defense Base Act (DBA), created in 1941, extended the federal workers' compensation program for longshore and harbor workers, initially to persons working on American military bases abroad and then to most federal contractors working outside of the United States.
The DBA requires that many federal government contractors and subcontractors provide workers' compensation insurance for their employees who work outside of the United States.
Who is covered under the DBA? The Defense Base Act covers the following employment activities:
* Work on public work contracts with any U.S. government agency, including construction and service contracts in connection with national defense or with war activities outside the United States;
* Work on contracts approved and funded by the U.S. under the Foreign Assistance Act, which among other things provides for cash sale of military equipment, materials, and services to its allies, if the contract is performed outside of the United States;
* Work for American employers providing welfare or similar services outside the United States for the benefit of the Armed Services, e.g. the United Service Organizations (USO).
If any one of the above criteria is met, all employees engaged in such employment, regardless of nationality (including U.S. citizens and residents, host country nationals (local hires), and third country nationals (individuals hired from another country to work in the host country)), are covered under the Act.
The Bottom Line
So here is the deal: You need to make sure that the doctor that you choose as your Free Choice Of Physician is going to “call it the way they see it.” Meaning, the doctor will not lean towards the insurance company. At the end of the day, all you want is an honest doctor. Trouble is, very few DBA workers have any idea about how to find a doctor that is a patient advocate and not an insurance company hack. This why we strongly recommend you choose your Defense Base Act attorney before your choose your doctor.
