National Defense Base Act Lawyer Helping Clients Across the United States

Civilian contractors serve companies with government contracts around the world, furthering the mission of the U.S. government, protecting its interests, and building and securing its embassies.

No attorney fees will be charged to the clients. The fees will be separate and apart from the client's recovery and paid by the insurance carrier directly.

Are you one of these employees? Have you sustained an on-the-job injury such as a concussion in a serious accident? Has hostile enemy fire caused you to suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD)? You have rights that must be protected — and can be, under the federal law known as the Defense Base Act.

If you suffered a civilian injury to the head, neck and back on a military base where U.S. forces are stationed, the skilled Texas lawyer who is committed to achieving justice for you — and for all injured persons, for 20 years — is Thomas Barnes, founder of the Barnes Law Firm, Ltd. LLP, in Houston. Contact our law firm for guidance through your claims.
