Defense Base Act Injuries

Working contracts overseas for the government or the military can be extremely dangerous. As a civilian contractor conducting business overseas for the United States, you and your family have specific rights under a statute called the Defense Base Act (DBA).

This act is specifically catered to protect those who are injured while assisting our government and/or military throughout the world. If you have been hurt on a government job or have tragically lost a loved one overseas while he or she was completing a military contract, our law office can help. Contact our Houston-based lawyers at the Barnes Law Firm, Ltd. LLP, for skilled guidance. We serve clients throughout the United States and abroad.
