The Must-Read DBA Article for Injured Overseas SENTEL Employees


Stay True

Integrity and honesty are some of the best traits found in people. This is true in every situation. But it is especially true in dealing with your Defense Base Act case. At the end of the day no one wants to help out a liar. This is true for you, for me and the judge. You are going to lose your DBA case if the judge thinks you are purposefully lying, fudging or hiding any detail relevant to your DBA case.

Like I said no one want to help out a liar. So, don’t be one.


How to Stay True

Being honest with everything related to your DBA case with everyone you interact with can be more challenging than it sounds. It may sound crazy but it happens all the time. People think that exaggerating details or dramatizing their injury will help them win their case. It just doesn’t work and it falls into one of the clearest traps that the DBA insurance company and their lawyers put out.

The DBA insurance company know that if a claimant has solid credibility they will win their DBA cases. They also know that they can make a lot of money if they delegitimize your claim. So, they will try to make you out to be a liar in front of the judge. If they are successful then they win.

I don’t want them to win. I want you to win because you don’t just want those DBA benefits, you need those DBA benefits. You need to be prepared for whatever the DBA insurance company and their lawyers throw at you. You need to put aside your frustration, your fear and your pain and present your case honestly and clearly.

To do that you are going to need to start studying. Find out when and where all the traps are going to be laid out for you by reading Win Your Defense Base Act”. This book will show you were the traps are and what do in order to side-step them.

After you’re finished reading that, take a look at the DBA article library on our website or the DBA FAQ page which covers everything you are going to need to know to win your DBA case.

Then to complete your research you are going to need to find the best representation for you and your case. You are going to need to find someone who is an expert on the DBA law system, one who has fought for others in the same situation as you and won.

The Dangers of Working for SENTEL

“Currently, SENTEL’s 500 plus employees, from diverse backgrounds, are situated in over 30 locations throughout the US and several foreign countries, including Southwest Asia and Korea.” If you are one of these 500 “employees that have high levels of corporate and military experience” you are likely covered under the Defense Base Act. And this is the best thing for you.

Because if you get injured while you are working for SENTEL in one of these diverse and potentially unsafe territories outside the U.S. you will be covered. And you will be entitled to a string of financial and medical benefits that could be the means to your survival after your injury and after you’ve been sent back home.

Like I said before these benefits can sometimes be hard to get, which means you have to be ready for anything. So, as soon as you think you have a DBA claim on your hands you have to start studying, lawyer up and get your facts straight so you can be guaranteed ALL of the benefits that you deserve.

Great book!!! Lots of information to help with your DBA case!

I got this book a week ago and have read through it. It has tons of great information that you would not normally know about regarding your DBA injury or how to deal with your insurance adjuster. It helps you navigate some law and breaks it down "barney style" so contractors can understand how to navigate through all your medical and legal processes. I would recommend this book for any contractor working for the USG overseas.

Powerful Book
February 28, 2017

This is a very good book! If you or someone you care about might think they have a Defense Base Act case then you need to buy this book. This book is straight forward no BS. This is the most info available about the process dealing with DBA that I have ever found. I personally use it and have gone through the DBA process from beginning to end and I can tell you this is spot on. Mr.Turley actually cares about the people that have gone overseas healthy, risking their lives and came back injured in some form or fashion. He cared so much that he wrote this book! This book is a valuable tool to take on the DBA!

Turley's book is clearly written and an easy read. Highly recommended for anyone covered under DBA ...

In fact, I suggest buying a copy of the book immediately and reading it if you are covered under DBA and are either deployed or facing an upcoming deployment. It is better to be armed with information regarding DBA coverage and claims process prior to being injured.
