Am I entitled to mileage reimbursement in a Defense Base Act (DBA) or Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) case?
Yes, you’re entitled to mileage reimbursement in your Longshore and Defense Base Act claims. You can claim mileage to and from your doctor’s office, to the pharmacy, to the physical therapy. There’s no specific form that you have to use. However, at Doolittle and Tucker we have created a form that will help you complete your round-trip mileage and seek reimbursement.
