Why do I need an attorney for my Defense Base Act (DBA) claim?

Video Transcription:

Under the Defense Base Act you need an attorney for several reasons. First, your attorney will ensure that you’re provided with proper benefits on a timely basis. Second, your attorney will monitor your medical progress to make sure that whatever your physician is requesting or recommending, you receive. Third, if the employer and the insurance company have an attorney, then so should you.
