Mainstay Law LLC is a New Orleans, Louisiana, USA based law firm that specializes in the Defense Base Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, and the Jones Act. Our calling is to preserve the rights of injured workers. If you have suffered a work-related injury on a United States installation overseas, you may qualify for benefits.
Mainstay Law LLC works diligently to ensure that injured workers’ rights to compensation from workplace injuries are protected. We focus on personal injuries such as the Defense Base Act. You may wonder, “What exactly is the Defense Base Act?”
The Defense Base Act extends federal workers’ compensation under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act to civilian contractors injured on overseas U.S. installations. If you believe that you may qualify for compensation and are located in Louisiana, hire a New Orleans Defense Base Act attorney.
When you enlist Mainstay Law LLC on your case, one of the first steps is to ensure that you are covered under the Defense Base Act. If you are a civilian working under contract for the United States government in other countries, whether at military installations or on public works projects, you may fall under the Defense Base Act.
