If you have been injured, or suffer from PTSD, related to your service in Qatar and Kuwait, while working under a U.S. Government Contract, call our DBA lawyer, Tim Nies, for free. The Defense Base Act (DBA) provides workers’ compensation protection to civilian employees working outside the United States on U.S. military bases or under a contract with the U.S. government for public works or for national defense. This post discusses DBA coverage for injuries sustained in Qatar or Kuwait.
Right now, especially after leaving Afghanistan, many workers are stationed in Camp Arifjan, Camp Doha Army Base, Camp Virginia Army Base, or Camp New York Army Base in Kuwait Kuwait or in Camp Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, while working under U.S. Government contracts.
If you are a worker in Kuwait or Qatar, and cannot return to their job for a period of time following an injury, you may be eligible for DBA disability benefits. You are considered disabled under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act as extended by the Defense Base Act if you cannot earn the same wages as you did prior to the injury (including PTSD). You are entitled to compensation and medical care.
I am a veteran of the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment and a former insurance company trial lawyer. I have been an injury lawyer for 20 years and have been representing injured private military contractors in DBA claims since 2008. I outwork DBA lawyers hired by insurance companies. If you have been injured, or suffer from PTSD, relating to working in Kuwait or Qatar, or on any other U.S. military base, or under U.S. Government contract, don’t let DBA Insurance companies deny medical care or offer lowball settlement. I will fight for DBA coverage for injuries sustained in Qatar and Kuwait.
