With millions of people serving U.S. war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan during the last 12 years, along with a vast network of bases across the world, these workers — not enlisted in the U.S. military — also deserve certain protections.
At McGuinn, Hillsman & Palefsky in San Francisco, California, our lawyers make sure that workers from the United States and all over the world serving the United States national security interests get the benefits they deserve under the Defense Base Act (DBA) when they are hurt on the job.
Representing Injured American And International Contractors
Congress passed the Defense Base Act to ensure that nonmilitary employees of the U.S. government and contractors working on overseas U.S. military bases receive compensation if they sustain injuries during their employment. It is important to note that the law covers both U.S. citizens and foreign workers.
