Benefits for a workplace injury under the Defense Base Act include:
The federal workers’ comp you could receive is a valuable benefit. It doesn’t have the same limits as state workers’ comp.
Most forms of Louisiana workers’ comp end after 10 years. This is not the case with workers’ comp under the Defense Base Act.
Louisiana also caps the amount you can get in compensation payments for lost wages much lower than the federal longshore program.

When you’re hurt at work in a job covered by the Defense Base Act, take these steps immediately to be sure you get the financial assistance you’re owed:
It’s important to move fast to start your claim. You have deadlines to meet. Plus, it can take time to get awarded benefits, so you want to start as soon as possible.
This is a special process run by the U.S. Department of Labor. It could require you to appear in a trial in front of an administrative law judge.
So talk to one of our lawyers as soon as you can. Our workers’ comp lawyers know how to handle this process. The moves you make early can determine how successful you are at obtaining benefits later.
You likely will pay no attorney fee. The federal law requires your employer and its insurance company to pay for your attorney fee in most situations.
Let’s make sure you recover from your injury in every way you can, including financially.
