Kwajalein Range Services and Chugach Management Services
Let’s talk about Kwajalein Range Services and Chugach Management Services and Defense Base Act claims.
Kwajalein Range Services, LLC is a joint venture company formed by Bechtel and Lockheed Martin. It has been a prime contractor for Logistics and Base Operations Support, and Integrated Range Engineering at U.S. Army Garrison Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site since 2003.
KRS also includes major subcontractor Chugach Management Services, a native Alaskan company, which provides logistics support services to the contract and Berry Aviation, Inc. which provides aviation services. They provide construction, technical support, and facility management and maintenance to U.S. government departments all over the world.
I'd like to tell you that everything is just perfect at these companies.
I'd like to tell you that civilians that work for these contractors overseas don't get seriously injured. But I can't tell you any of that.
According to the US Department of Labor's Defense Base Act Industry Report Card, both Kwajalein Range Services and Chugach Management have reported dozens of injuries for their employees while overseas.
And if you follow the DBA Industry Report card, you will realize that injuries are way underreported. Based on what I have seen for years, injuries are so underreported by the DBA Industry Report card and that it would be a joke if it wasn't about people's lives.
I know this because we have helped many contractors from KRS and Chugach Management Services get the help they need if they’ve been seriously injured while contracting.
We are the largest Defense Base Act law firm in the Western United States and one of the top two largest DBA law firms in the world that represents seriously injured overseas civilian contractors. What that means is that we deal with what you’re going through every single day.
It’s like trying to pet a rattle snake
Talking to the DBA insurance adjuster is sort of like trying to pet a rattle snake. Sure, some people may be able to do it - but I don’t suggest that you try it.
If you have no idea about what I’m talking about here........I strongly suggest you do two things. First, you IMMEDIATELY get my 5 Star book - Win Your Defense Base Act Case. You can buy it here on amazon.com or you can get a free copy here.
Second, I suggest you check out this article on the Top 10 DBA Questions (see Questions 2, 3, 4, and 6....).
Don’t buy what the DBA insurance adjuster tells you
When you are injured, the last thing you want to do is go it alone. The insurance company adjusters may act as if they have your best interest in mind but don’t be fooled. They may act all friendly with you. But know this - their job is to deny claims. Claims from people just like you. They lose money when they accept claims. They are looking for reasons to deny your claim.
We see it every day. An injured contractor will come to us after the insurance company has cut them off. Even though the insurance company told him that they wanted to help him get better, they work with their nurse case manager to get the doctor to rush him back to duty before they are ready.
They act all lovey-dovey until they get you to fall for one of their common tricks or traps. Then they have the evidence needed to beat you in court. We get these calls every week. Sometimes we can fix it - sometimes we can’t. Best thing for you is not to go there at all.
