"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything." - Mark Twain
Twain Was Right
Telling the truth is just easier and it also wins Defense Base Act (DBA) cases. So there is no losing when it comes to telling the truth. In fact, there is nothing is more important when handling your case. You have to be up-front, honest, and truthful to your attorney and the judge. If a judge suspects your not telling the truth about even the smallest detail regarding your case, you lose. Simple as that.
But it gets tricky because there are a lot of details when it come to DBA cases. There are a lot of papers, pieces of evidence, facts, witnesses, etc. in one DBA case. The DBA insurance company and their lawyers are going to look through every single one of those details and do their best to find something that doesn't add up so they can present you as a liar in front of the judge. This is just how this game is played.
You can be prepared for these attacks by learning and studying the Defense Base Act, your own case and your own rights under the DBA.

Sadly good folks get stuck with bad lawyers. One reason for this is that the DBA insurance companies suggest a lawyer to the injured civilian worker and the worker hires the suggested lawyer because they think they have to. This is not true. Those that have been seriously injured overseas are free to hire any lawyer they want.
The second reason is that folks choose a locally based lawyer. And this isn't always a bad thing, but for the most part local attornies from Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha or Appleton aren't likely to have the experience they need to win your case. They might be fully competent lawyers but they don't know the Defense Base Act like the back of their hand and that is what they are going to need to win.

You have a choice. You are the only one who gets to choose your DBA lawyer. And yes, you can pick a local lawyer based out of Kenosha because he's been recommended by your aunt.
