My Best Advice
Nothing is more important when handling your case, then speaking the truth. People who believe if they sugar coat their case, it will help them win more money. Wrong.
You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects your not telling the truth, you can say goodbye to your case. Count on it. I have seen it time and time again.

Defense Base Act workers often times work and live in war theaters. Anything can and does happen. Sometimes DBA workers suffer very serious obvious brain injuries.
Sometimes you are told that you had a "concussion." it may even sound like a high school football injury. It may not even sound that serious - at first. These type of brain injuries are much more difficult to spot and detect. Truth is, even "concussions" can cause long term affects. Concussive blast injuries can and do cause serious long term problems. And they often go undiagnosed. Unfortunately, this happens all too often. I have seen it time and again.
When you find out that a family member has suffered a severe head or brain injury while working for an overseas defense contractor, you probably aren’t thinking about the costs when you start making decisions about medical care. However, for many families, the staggering costs of recovering from, adjusting to, and caring for a serious brain injury can quickly eat up their savings and leave them with few choices.
The Defense Base Act Cover Overseas Brain Injuries, but it Doesn’t Always Work That Way
While the Defense Base Act (DBA) is meant to protect civilian contractors and their families who are put into difficult situations by an injury, brain injury claims are regularly denied—even when it’s unfair and just plain wrong. The insurance companies that handle DBA claims are often more concerned with protecting their own profit margins, and the claims process can be filled with mysterious delays and confusing information. Even if you think you’re doing everything right, a claim for a very serious brain injury can be denied. But your family can take a stand if you are not getting the results you need.
You Can Fight for Your Family’s Rights Under the Defense Base Act
If your family’s life has been changed because a loved one sustained a brain injury while working overseas, you deserve to be treated fairly and receive the medical treatment and money compensation you need to move forward. However, the reality is that many families feel lost, confused, misled, and manipulated when they attempt to make a claim for benefits. Although it’s easy to feel like giving up, you can fight for your rights by working closely with an attorney who has experienced winning DBA cases—but first you have to get informed.
