Northrop Grumman & Defense Base Act Claims



Let’s talk about Northrop Grumman and The Defense Base Act

On the Northrop Grumman website, the company says they are a “leading global security company” who “hold ourselves to a higher standard, both in the products we deliver and in the way we conduct ourselves throughout the entire customer experience. Because, after all, we are in the business of securing a great deal more than just our place in the market”.

It’s all true, I don’t doubt it, let’s face it: Northrop Grumman are the big boys of defense, that’s clear, but what they don’t say on their site is that the only reason they are where they are is because of hard working folks like yourself. You are the heart and soul of Northrop Grumman and undoubtedly are at least partially responsible for their success.

They go on to say, “Squarely meeting our obligations, fiscally and technologically, isn't just a business goal, but a moral imperative”.

Northrop Grumman talks about the “moral imperative” of running their business. Taking care of your family is your “moral imperative.” I get that. If you’ve been seriously injured and make a DBA claim, the DBA insurance company has a team of attorneys that will be looking for anything that can hurt your case.


The Defense Base Act

The Defense Base Act (DBA) was created in 1941, The DBA extended the federal workers' compensation program for longshore and harbor workers, to include persons working on American military bases abroad and then to most federal contractors working outside of the United States.

The DBA requires that many federal government contractors and subcontractors provide workers' compensation insurance for their employees who work outside of the United States.

If you are injured while working overseas for Northrop Grumman, then your injury probably falls under the Defense Base Act.


Why a San Diego Defense Base Act Lawyer?

Believe it or not, I am known for being blunt and straight-up. I tell like it is. No legal mumbo-jumbo. No lawyer talk. Ever.

When you look into it, you will find that very few Defense Base Act attorneys have been handling DBA cases for as long as me and my firm. We got this, and we are ready to roll.

I live and work in San Diego, California. I’m guessing that you may be reading this from somewhere very far from here.

The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act. I have been practicing Longshore law since 1987. 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.

There are many former military types that went to Iraq and Afghanistan that returned to San Diego and California with serious DBA injuries. In addition, many linguists are from California. When they needed help with their Defense Base Act cases they hired my law firm.

Nowadays, my law firm represents more Defense Base Act workers than any other law firm on the West Coast. People who know tell me that my law firm is one of the top two largest DBA law firms in the world that represents injured overseas contractors. There's a reason for this. Defense Base Act cases are what we do. We represent DBA workers from across America and from around the world.

Folks, if you have a Defense Base Act case, you need to get a copy of this book ASAP! It doesn't matter if you are just starting your case, or are in the middle of it, get this book now. There are many topics covered in detail that I did not know about, that my (previous) attorney did not seem to know about, and that are very difficult to understand via Google searches. Read this book from cover to cover and you will be empowered with a great amount of knowledge. During your case, this could be one of the most important purchases you make.
