Defense Base Act
Defense Base Act Lawyers Representing Injured Workers Worldwide
The Defense Base Act covers workers who sustain injuries while working for employers involved in construction and service contracts in connection with national defense or with war activities outside the United States. The Defense Base Act covers you whether your employer is a U.S. company, or a foreign company. It also covers you whether you are a U.S. citizen or a non-resident.
Our firm can handle your claim if you are a civilian who was injured in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Syria or anywhere overseas, if you were working for a private employer under a contract with any U.S. government agency.
