In 1942, the United States developed an act that protected overseas contracted civilian workers and helped provide them with necessary benefits and compensation in the event of a major injury or accident. This act serves as an extension of other federal workers’ compensation acts and applies to all individuals serving as military contractors, those working on military bases and any other civilian that is working in an area of national defense.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your eligibility to obtain compensation, or if your service falls under the Defense Base Act, do not hesitate to contact our team. J. David Smith, Attorney at Law can provide you with needed guidance during this difficult time.
