Uganda Defense Base Act Lawyer- Bill Turley

“Decide what you stand for. And then stand for it all the time.”  ― Clayton M. Christensen

Truth Matters
When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more then the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straight forward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugar coat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get go.

The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in. 

Remember the DBA insurance company is not your friend. I strongly suggest you order a free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. The book has plenty of great 5 Star reviews on Amazon, and it is a guide to only help you succeed in your case. 

Trust me. My only goal here is to make sure honest hard working folks like you, do not get ripped off by these companies.

Injured working as a contractor?

If you were injured while working as a civilian defense contractor in Iraq or Afghanistan you may have questions about how you can receive benefits for your injuries.  Truth is, many Ugandans were recruited to work in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Many returned to Uganda with serious injuries and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Whether you are from Kampala, Kira, Gulu, Lira, Mbale, Nansana, Jinja, Mbarara, Entebbe, Kasese or one of the other cities and/or towns in Uganda you may be looking for a Defense Base Act Lawyer.  Or you may be doing research on the Defense Base Act.

This is the most comprehensive website on the Defense Base Act (also called the “DBA”).  This website is designed to answer your questions on the DBA.  Here is a good place to start.

What is the Defense Base Act?

The DBA is a workers’ compensation system that the United States has for civilian contractors that are injured while overseas.  If you worked under a U.S. defense contract in Iraq and/or Afghanistan (or other parts of the world, including in Uganda); and you were seriously injured - - then you should bring a Defense Base Act claim.

Uganda Defense Base Act Attorney

You might be thinking that you are looking for a Uganda Defense Base Act lawyer or a Ugandan DBA Attorney. However, what you are going to find is that the DBA is part of the law of the United States of America.  Thus, all of the really good DBA lawyers are located in the U.S.A.

Fact is, you aren’t going to find a Ugandan DBA lawyer in Kampala, Kira, Gulu, Lira, Mbale, Nansana, Jinja, Mbarara, Entebbe, Kasese or one of the other cities and/or towns in Uganda.

Why having a DBA lawyer from San Diego is a benefit for you

 I am from San Diego, California, U.S.A. San Diego is a second largest military town in the United States.  California is the largest State in the United States. There are many former military personnel that went to Iraq and Afghanistan as overseas civilian contractors that returned to San Diego and California with serious DBA injuries.

In addition, many linguists are from California.  When they needed help with their Defense Base Act cases they hired my law firm.  We specialize in seriously injured representing Defense Base from around the world.

Today, my law firm represents more Defense Base Act workers than any other law firm on the west coast of the United States.  It is my understanding that my law firm is one of the three largest DBA law firms.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD

PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is an injury that can occur following the experience or witnessing of a life-threatening events such as being under enemy fire, driving in enemy territory due to IED threats, the threat of suicide bombers, rocket attacks, mortars, gun fire, casualties and the like.

Today, many people that have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan have developed PTSD symptoms.  If this is you or a family member, then you may be entitled to significant compensation.

The Bottom Line

If you or a family member was seriously injured in Iraq or Afghanistan you need to hire the best honest Defense Base Act Lawyer that you can find.  You and your family deserve to receive this compensation.. You can win your case and get medical treatment and money benefits even if you live in Uganda. We represent clients from around the world.
