Defense Base Act Claims

Defense Base Act Attorney in Houston

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.

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 accident-injury attorneys of The Law Offices of Shane McClelland are committed to achieving justice for you.

We work hard to assist Defense Base Act claimants and their families with the filing of injury, accident, and wrongful death claims as well as prompt receipt of appropriate workers’ compensation benefits called for under the Defense Base Act.
