What is the Defense Base Act? Does it apply to you?

Many companies here in Louisiana and elsewhere in the country have government contracts. If your employer is one of them, you may find that you have the opportunity to work and live in another country. When you do, you may wonder what happens if you suffer a work-related injury. Instead of applying for workers' compensation benefits, you would look to the Defense Base Act.

Will the Defense Base Act cover your injuries?

Many Louisiana residents want to see the world. One way to do that is to work for a company that provides you with the opportunity to travel. Perhaps you ended up working for the Armed Forces or another federal agency in a foreign country, a U.S. territory or a U.S. possession. While there, you suffered injuries. You may wonder whether you could receive benefits through the Defense Base Act.
