“I give you an insider’s view of Defense Base Act Law, with no sugar coating. No lawyer talk, no double talk. Ever."
Defense Base Act Lawyer Bill Turley
“The DBA insurance adjuster told me that I don’t need a lawyer, So I’m good.”
That’s like the coach of the opposing football team telling you that your team doesn’t need a coach. Really? Did you ask the insurance adjuster why the DBA insurance company has so many lawyers?
Fact is, the DBA insurance company doesn’t want you to have a lawyer. Because they know that they’ll have to pay you a LOT more money if you get a lawyer.
Make no mistake about it. You now have a court case. You need a lawyer to win your court case.
Second, I suggest you check out this article on the Top 10 DBA Questions (see Questions 2, 3, 4, and 6....).

Getting The Benefits You Deserve
Getting the benefits that you are entitled to under the DBA after you have been injured while working for L3 Technologies isn’t easy. Even if you have a legitimate DBA claim the chances of you actually receiving your DBA benefits is slim. This is because the DBA insurance companies are paid the big bucks for denying legitimate claims, just like yours. So, they do, every day.
I don’t want this to happen to you so I’m going to make this page a resource and give you the tools you need to win your DBA benefits back. By reading this page, you’ll already be one step ahead of the DBA insurance companies and their lawyers.
So here’s the break down. You will need:
1. The best DBA attorney out there.

The Best DBA Attorney Out There.
Why do you need a lawyer? Technically speaking, you don’t. Anyone from anywhere can represent you in court with your DBA claim. But here’s the deal, the DBA insurance companies have an arsenal of lawyers who deal with the Defense Base Act every day. They know how the law system works and they know what they have to do to make sure you lose your case and your benefits.
You need someone that is just as much of a DBA expert as they are on your side, fighting for your rights. You need to buckle down and do some research. Look outside of your state or home town and check out the top-rated DBA specialized lawyers in the country, heck, find the best in the world. Look up interviews, articles, blog posts and reviews about your potential lawyer and make sure they’re the best of the best.
The DBA insurance lawyers know that credibility wins DBA cases. They know that if they catch you in a lie or an exaggeration your case is over. Plain and simple.
So, don’t fall for this trap. Be completely honest when discussing any detail (no matter how small) with your family, your employer, your co-workers, your friends, your lawyer and most importantly the judge. Don’t misremember a detail. Don’t make up an answer to a question you don’t know the answer to.
Be smart, tell the truth.
