“For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth”
– Bo Bennett
Working For ESS
“ESS is the market leader in providing remote food service and related support assistance to clients, wherever their location, no matter how extreme the environment may be.” This is a great service to offer but let’s be honest, these “extreme” environments can be pretty dangerous for the folks providing the service. Things happen whether we are prepared for them or not.
But if you are one of these folks you should find out if you are covered by the Defense Base Act (DBA) right away. If you are covered under the DBA and you get injured while working for ESS abroad then you are entitled to medical and financial benefits. These benefits can be the means for survival after you are injured and can’t make the same money you’re used to making working for ESS.
Why should I hire a DBA lawyer?
This is a really good question. I strongly suggest that you check out this article on the Top 10 Defense Base Act questions. (Question No. 2, on the list, and be sure to check Out Questions No. 3, 4 and 6, which are also about hiring a DBA lawyer).
Honesty is Still the Best Policy
You are always told as a kid to tell the truth and never lie. Well that age-old advice still holds true. Now more than ever with your DBA case. Whether you win or lose your DBA case will be based completely on whether or not the judge believes you and your claim.
So, if there is one thing you do consistently with your DBA case make it tell the truth. It is the only way you’ll win. Trust me I’ve been doing this a long time. I wouldn’t have started this article off with an honesty quote if I didn’t believe in the truth. The truth wins DBA cases, plain and simple.
Not as Easy as it Sounds
Sometimes telling the whole, complete truth isn’t as simple as you would hope. This is because the DBA insurance companies know that solid credibility wins DBA cases. So, they will try to trap you and make you out to be a liar in front of the judge. This means that you will have to be prepared to curve everything they throw at you.
The best way to prepare for your DBA case is to know everything about your DBA case, the DBA insurance companies and the DBA itself. You can do this by reading the most straight forward and helpful guide to the DBA that’s on the market; “Win Your Defense Base Act Case” and you get it here for FREE.
You can also check out the resources on the Turley Law Firm website which covers just about everything you are going to need to know for your DBA case. It is just as “straight-to-the-point” as the book and will walk you through every step you need to win your case.
