“There are only two kinds of men in this world: Honest men and dishonest men."
- Ralph Moody
Be An Honest Man
The first thing you must do is always tell the truth. No matter what it is that you are worried about or is handing over your head, forget it and be honest. If you lie, you will loose your case. The judge will always prefer the honest man, just like you would or I would. Trust me, I have seen it time and time again.
Telling the whole and complete truth isn't always as easy as you would hope. I know that sounds a little nuts but it's true. It is one of the reasons I offer my book, Winning Your Defense Base Act Case: The Ultimate Straight Talk Roadmap To The Medical Treatment and Money You and Your Family Deserve, for FREE. You need someone to guide you through navigating the details of your case so you stay true and don't fall into any traps the DBA insurance company has laid out for you.
You can also check it out on Amazon, there my book isn't free but Amazon does have a long list of 5 star reviews from other injured civilian contractors that my book has helped.
You Have a Battle Ahead of You
Way too often, DBA workers come home to fight yet another battle for receiving basic medical care and weekly compensation checks. The Defense Base Act insurance make billions of dollars denying legitimate Defense Base Act claims. They take advantage of a system that doesn’t punish DBA insurance company’s for messing with good people’s lives. In fact, it's the opposite, the DBA insurance company’s make the big bucks for denying legitimate claims.
So, again, they are just waiting for you to make a mistake.
The DBA Insurance Company’s Make A Lot Of Money Off DBA Workers Who Choose The Wrong Lawyer
To the DBA insurance company’s, they know that they won’t have to provide the benefits the injured DBA worker is entitled to unless the seriously injured DBA worker hires a lawyer. But not just any lawyer. If you hire a lawyer that doesn’t know what they are doing when it comes to DBA claims, you will NOT get the benefits you deserve.
There is little hope for a settlement or prevailing at trial because the DBA insurance company’s know that the local workers’ compensation or personal injury lawyer won’t be able to navigate the legal land mines they encounter. This happens 9 out of 10 times. This is where the DBA insurance companies make their money.
So if you are thinking of hiring a North Dakota based lawyer you might want to reconsider your options. The reality is that there probably isn't an extremely seasoned Defense Base Act focused lawyer in Fargo, Bismarck, Minot, Grand Forks, Jamestown or Dickinson. Look outside your state lines and find the very best of the best when it comes to DBA attorneys.
