Are You A Government Contractor Injured Overseas?
Asserting Your Rights Under Your DBA Insurance
As a contractor working overseas for the U.S. government, working on U.S. military bases, or under public works contracts, you’re covered under the Defense Base Act. The Defense Base Act provides workers’ compensation protection to civilian employees working outside the United States on US military bases or under a contract with the U.S. government for public works or for national defense.
Your DBA coverage gives you the right to compensation should you be injured while performing the duties of your contract. It’s scary and stressful to suffer an injury when you’re away from home and alone. Wondering how you’ll pay for your medical treatment or financially recover from the wages you’ve lost while injured can cause a lot of anxiety and stress. A.D. Winters can guide you through the entire process so that you’re not left alone and without proper compensation.
