Defense Based Act (DBA)

Defense Based Act claims are another special set of laws that we know like the back of our hand. While these claims are processed in the same court as The Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act, they deal with a different set of laws that requires a real expert to tackle. DBA is a type of workers’ compensation for employees of a federal government contractor that are injured in the country or abroad. An example of this would be, a man maintaining a warehouse for the Army in Afghanistan that injures his leg during a forklift operation.
