The Defense Base Act
Serving Federal Employees Injured Overseas
Are you a U.S. government employee who has been injured while working for
the government overseas? Under the Defense Base Act (DBA), you may be
eligible to recover benefits if you sustained a work-related injury. This
act was created to provide injury coverage to all workers who are involved
in military and non-military projects overseas contracted by the U.S.
government. All agencies with U.S. government contracts are required to
carry DBA insurance in the event of a workplace injury.
To learn whether or not your overseas injuries are covered by the Defense
Base Act, just call Chestnut & Beller today for a
free consultation. We can review your eligibility and help you file a claim.
The Defense Base Act can cover the following employees:
- Employees who work on military bases of reservations outside of the U.S.
- Employees working on U.S. government-funded public works projects internationally
- Employees engaging in military or public works projects with a foreign
government (the project must be considered essential for U.S. National Security)
- Employees who provide services overseas that are funded by the U.S. government
(military or non-military)
- Employees or sub-contractors of agencies contracted with the U.S. government
