What is a Defense Base Act Attorney?

The Defense Base Act, or the DBA, is what provides workers’ compensation protection for contracted, civilian employees working for the US government overseas. These workers are often contracted for public works projects or national defense projects. Typically, they are working on US military bases.

Defense Base Act coverage applies to individuals who are:

  • Private employees on US military bases or on land used by the US for military purposes (this includes US territories and other US possessions)
  • Employed by any US government agency under public works contracts
  • Contracted to any projects approved and funded under the US Foreign Assistance Act (when the job is outside the US)
  • Working for US employers and providing services for the Armed Forces, such as the USO

Many civilian workers contracted to the US government in places like the Middle East, Central America, Asia, Africa, and Australia have been injured and are unaware that they are entitled to workers’ compensation under the Defense Base Act. A knowledgeable Defense Base Act attorney can help you understand the DBA and help you recover compensation for your injuries.
