Best Reviewed Georgia Defense Base Act Attorney Fights For Your Rights

"Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud."

- Sophocles

Truth Matters

When handling your DBA case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get go.

The DBA insurance company is not on your side. They have traps laying around for you to fall in. And bet on it, if you do not follow the proper steps with your DBA case, you will fall right in.

Remember the DBA insurance company is not your friend. I strongly suggest you order a free copy of my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve. The book has plenty of great 5 Star reviews on Amazon, and it is a guide to only help you succeed in your case.

Trust me. My only goal here is to make sure honest hard working folks like you, do not get ripped off by these companies.


Having the Right DBA Lawyer Can Make All the Difference

Having the right DBA lawyer will usually mean whether you win or lose your DBA case. You may be tempted to hire a local lawyer based out of Atlanta, Savannah, Augusta or Macon. But the chance of them losing your case or settling your case for a lot less than you deserve is pretty good because they're a local. You do not want that. 

See the thing is a lot of local workers' comp lawyers don't really know about the Defense Base Act. They don't understand how it works or how to win those kind of cases. You don't want someone learning on the job. You want an expert. And to get that you may have to look outside Georgia state lines. 

How us being from San Diego helps you

We are based in San Diego, California.  This is a benefit to you.  Few Defense Base Act lawyers have been handling DBA cases longer than us.  The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act.  I have been handling Longshore Act cases since 1987.  Because San Diego has the largest shipyard on the west coast with thousands of shipyard workers, I gained valuable experience with these cases long before the United States sent civilian workers to Iraq and Afghanistan. That experience helps me win Defense Base Act cases.  

San Diego is the biggest military town in the United States.  The Defense Contracting Companies hired thousands of San Diego based ex-military types to work in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were there for them and their family’s after they were seriously injured. Thus, lt makes sense that The Turley Law Firm is America’s Leading Defense Base Act Law Firm.

Today, The Turley Law Firm represents seriously injured Defense Base Act workers and their families across the USA and around the world.  We can help you and our family get the compensation you deserve.


DBA Employers We Take On

Examples of some of the companies we see are SEII, L-3, DynCorp, Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR), Triple Canopy, Blackwater, etc.

The Defense Base Act provides disability compensation, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation to workers injured at work and death benefits to survivors when the worker is killed on the job. You need not be a U.S. citizen or a U.S. resident to obtain these benefits.

This website helps address these very issues. We do it with plain English. So everybody can understand it.  We don’t give you the fluff. We don’t give you obscure generalities. We provide specific and useful information about Defense Base Act Law.

Use this website to help you win your DBA case.


You Need To Take Action

Your employer/ carrier is  obligated to provide you reasonable medical treatment and temporary total disability benefits under the Defense Base Act. Too often the carrier will arbitrarily refuse to pay or stop paying for medical treatment and will stop your workers' compensation checks. The insurance carrier will controvert your DBA claim.

Doing nothing is not the best option. If your Defense Base Act medical benefits or workers compensation - TTD checks - are denied or the insurance carrier refuses to pay for your medical treatment or TTD you need to take action immediatley!
