“I give you answers to your Defense Base Act questions in simple, easy to understand English. No legal mumbo-jumbo, lawyer talk.”
Defense Base Act Lawyer Bill Turley
Don’t try this at home....
You hear this on TV or on Youtube when some dude is about to set himself on fire, jump off a bridge, get eaten by sharks, stand on a moving motorcycle or do something else that can cause injury or death....
You don’t want to be that gal or guy. Similarly, you don’t want to jack up your DBA case by trying to represent yourself. Seriously. Before you do that, you should 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).
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.
Understanding the DBA
So you are covered by the DBA, what does that mean? There are many questions that arise when an injury occurs as an overseas contractor. That is why i have provided so many articles on my website to discuss the law and how it works.
After working on these cases for so many years, I have become familiar with many of the ins and outs of DBA coverage. Click here for my case study on the many factors of the Defense Base Act.
One thing i have learned over the years is that you can learn a ton from seeing what not to do by observing the many mistakes that have been made. Check out this article to see the top mistakes that people make when it comes to the DBA.
