Defense Base Act Case Lawyer Educates Injured Workers As To Statute Of Limitations In A Defense Base Act Case

Did you know that you only have one year from the date of your accident, or date of last payment of compensation, to file a claim in a Defense Base Act case? According to 33 U.S.C. 913, “the right to compensation for disability or death under this Act shall be barred unless a claim therefor is filed within one year after the injury or death.” If compensation has been paid, then you have one year from the date of last payment of compensation. Medical benefits are never time barred. If you have a Defense Base Act claim, make sure that you protect your rights by filing a claim within one year from your accident date or within one year from the last payment of compensation.
