Defense Base Act - Examples of some results
We have represented hundreds of seriously injured overseas civilian contractors over the years. They were injured while protecting America and preserving our freedom. We are proud to have been able to help these folks.
Here we provide some of the results for Defense Base Act cases. You are cautioned because every case is different. Every situation is different.
If you have read my book - Win Your Defense Base Act Case or checked out this website, you will see how I repeatedly state the importance of telling the truth whenever you have a court case. One of the key factors in assessing the value of your case is your credibility. You must always tell the truth.
As I outline in my book, the DBA insurance company is going to try and lay tricks and traps in order to diminish the value of your DBA case. I strongly suggest that you read the 5 Star reviews of my book and you get my book in order for you to get the best result possible for your case. You can get a free copy of my book here. All of this can greatly affect the potential value of a DBA case.
The point here is one of the main reasons why every case is different is that people are different. The issues with your case may very well be different from the issues presented in the case results that are discussed here.
There are any number of reasons why folks lose their Defense Base Act case. The DBA insurance company is going to have defenses and contentions that are invariably different in your case than the ones that are discussed in these case results.
However, the case results are provided in order to both illustrate some of the legal principles and in order to provide you with a ballpark, so to speak. We have tried to provide a small sample of some of the case results that we have achieved over the years.
There is no guarantee that you will have a similar result as the cases provided here. In other words, your results may vary.
