Defense Base Act Defense
Claims arising under the Defense Base Act have steadily increased as a result of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The handling of Defense Base Act claims was a natural fit for Luzuriaga Mims, given our history and experience with Longshore claims, as the Defense Base Act is an extension of the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act and incorporates the Longshore Act's remedies. Luzuriaga Mims handles Defense Base Act claims worldwide.
The Defense Base Act provides workers' compensation protection to civilian employees working outside the United States on US military bases or under a contract with the U.S. government for public works or for national defense.
