Preserving the Rights of Injured Workers
The founder of Mainstay Law LLC, Christy Johnson, has dedicated the past decade or more of her life to representing injured workers and making sure that they have the compensation for injuries that they deserve. Many steps forward have been made over the past century to ensure that workers have the protection they deserve from the ramifications of the injury. These steps include the creation of acts such as the Defense Base Act.
The Defense Base Act was enacted to extend federal workers’ compensation benefits under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act to civilian contractors injured during their time working overseas on U.S. installations. If you believe your injury may fall under the aforementioned stipulations, contact Christy Johnson with Mainstay Law LLC today.
Hire a Defense Base Act Law Firm
One of the first steps in enlisting a Defense Base Act law firm is determining whether the unique details of your case qualify you for compensation. If you currently or formerly were contracted to work on U.S. installations overseas and were working under the following roles while injured, you very well may qualify for compensation: food service worker, construction workers and laborer, surveillance and security personnel, logistics specialist, interpreter, and last but not least, truck driver or mechanic.
Mainstay Law LLC is one of a few law firms in the U.S. that handles Defense Base Act LA personal injury cases. Ms. Johnson also offers mediation services to help you avoid the headache and uncertainty of a trial.
