Atlanta Defense Base Act Attorneys

Atlanta Defense Base Act attorneys represents citizens and foreign workers, in making sure that they receive all the medical and wage loss benefits they are entitled to under the law. Many of these workers were injured in Afghanistan and Iraq, providing military support services. Our clients include but are not limited to workers employed in reconnaissance, logistics, linguists, security, building contractors, telephony, computers, electricians, plumbing, carpentry and HVAC repair.
The Defense Base Act is a generous law which provides injured workers significantly higher benefits then what would have been afforded under comparable state law. However, it is important to speak with someone knowledgeable about the law before deferring to the insurance carrier’s instructions. We recognize the tremendous sacrifice that government contractor workers are making to the U.S. National security.
As an injured worker who has made a sacrifice to this country, you should feel that you are being well provided for by the insurance company, and that you have been offered the medical treatment. Also, wage loss should be freely available for so long as required for you to recover from your injuries. Any depression and anxiety which is causally related to your work injuries, or from returning to home, should be regarded as any other physical injury.
Our Atlanta Defense Base Act attorney staff also represents longshoreman and dockworkers whose workers’ compensation benefits are paid under the Longshore and Harborworkers’ Compensation Act (“LHWCA”) and related Federal laws.
OurAtlanta Defense Base Act attorneys have had the privilege of representing many employees before the Judges of the U.S. Department of Labor. Often trial is necessary in order to obtain the full medical benefits and wage loss under the law. Another option is whole case settlement, once the injured worker obtains competent medical care, and is in a position to determine his future wage loss and medical expenses.
As with trials, we are aggressive at mediation to make sure that your case is settled a price-point which is fair to the injured worker. We are equally aggressive at readying your case well before settlement or trial, with up to date medical reports, doctors’ opinions and deposition testimony
