Preserving the Rights of Injured Workers
Christy Johnson of Mainstay Law LLC works diligently to ensure that all injured workers’ rights are protected following any disabling physical and psychological workplace injury. Many strides have been made in ensuring that workers have protection from injury, loss of income, and other hardships that can come from sustaining a workplace injury whether in the United States or overseas. The Defense Base Act was created to extend federal workers’ compensation benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act to civilian contractors who are injured while working on overseas U.S. installations. If you believe your injury falls under the above stipulations, contact Mainstay Law LLC for representation for Defense Base Act.
Do You Qualify for the Defense Base Act Louisiana?
One of the first steps in enlisting a law firm to handle your Defense Base Act case is to determine the unique details of your case and what compensation you qualify for. If you are contracted to work on U.S. installations overseas in the following roles and are injured on the job you very well may qualify for DBA compensation: construction workers and laborers, food service workers, surveillance and security personnel, logistic specialists, interpreters, and last but not least, truck drivers and mechanics.
