Defense Base Act Attorney

We Handle DBA Cases Across the Globe, From Start to Finish – (210) 807-3178

Civilians under the employment of the United States military and serving on an overseas U.S. military base are covered by the Defense Base Act (DBA), which provides them a workers’ compensation-like protection in case of on-the-job injury. The same protection and assurance is extended to private contractors who are performing overseas work for the U.S. Armed Forces, the State Department, and the Department of Defense. If you were hurt while completing your regular duties, then the Defense Base Act may be able to secure you benefits to recover.

The Law Offices of George P. Escobedo & Associates, PLLC proudly represents civilian personnel who need to file a Defense Base Act claim. We have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies who are sometimes tempted to wrongfully deny or undervalue the benefits needed by an injured worker. You can trust in us to be able to handle your Defense Base Act case or claim with the same passion and skill we show all our clients.

For a free case evaluation with our Defense Base Act lawyer, contact our firm at (210) 807-3178 now.

What You Should Know About the Defense Base Act

The Defense Base Act makes it possible for eligible employees and civilian personnel for essentially any job-related injury. To this extent, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is actually covered by the DBA, as well as other psychological injuries. The goal of DBA benefits are just like workers’ compensation benefits, which is to help you recuperate comfortably without having to worry about your finances and medical expenses.

Workers who are covered by the Defense Base Act include but are not limited to:

  • Security personnel
  • Language interpreters
  • Contract interpreters
  • Couriers
  • Documentation specialists
  • Interdisciplinary engineers

If your DBA claim is approved, you may receive finances based on:

  • Your total payment amount based on your contract.
  • How much money you earned in the previous year before your injury.
  • Both your overseas and domestic incomes before your injury.

In some cases, you might not be given regular benefits through your Defense Base Act claim. Instead, it might be needed to arrange a lump settlement to be paid to you at once. Our San Antonio Defense Base Act attorney, Mr. George Escobedo, can act on your behalf to negotiate a fair lump settlement amount.
