Don't Start Your Defense Base Act Case Playing Catch Up
The most effective time to call an AIG Defense Base Act Lawyer (or more accurately - Lawyer that regularly takes on AIG) is right at the beginning. Especially if you're filing for Defense Base Act benefits. Not having a lawyer in place before a claim for any type of benefits is denied can weaken your case because tight deadlines often leave too little time to gather the necessary medical exams and records for building a solid case. The best way to avoid this scenario is by contacting us before you think you might need a lawyer, so we can begin to educate you about the steps you'll face ahead.
The last thing you want to do is to start your case while trying to play catch-up with the insurance company. Just like in sports, it is best to be ahead and stay ahead with your case. Don't take the chance that you will be playing catch-up with the insurance company and their lawyers.
Instead prepare yourself and learn what stretegies and tools you will need to win your DBA case. It isn't going to be easy, but the more ready you are for what the insurance company will throw at you.
I recommend ordering a FREE copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act, which lists out all the common traps that good, honest overseas contractors fall for on the daily. I've dealt with these types of cases for over 20 years. I know how they get people and I don't want that to happen to you.
AIG and the Defense Base Act
Currently, the U.S. pays more than $400 million annually to AIG and a handful of other carriers. AIG dominates the market for the insurance, which exploded from an $18 million a year business to more than $400 million per year after civilian contractors flooded into war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. AIG controls about 75 percent of the market, then Chicago-based CNA and Bermuda-based ACE Group. Together, the three defense base act insurance carriers collect 97 percent of all premiums paid by defense contractors for the insurance, the cost of which is reimbursed by the U.S.A. government.

Defense Base Act Coverage
The Defense Base Act was established in 1941 with the primary goal to cover workers on military bases outside the United States. The Act was amended to include public works contracts with the U.S. government for the building of nonmilitary projects abroad including dams, schools, harbors and roads.
Today, almost any contract with an agency of the U.S. government, requiring work outside the U.S., whether military in nature or not, will likely require Defense Base Act coverage.
