When should I notify my Employer if I am injured on the job in Iraq or Afghanistan?

The law allows you 30 days to notify your employer if you are injured on the job in Iraq or Afghanistan.  There are exceptions to this rule, however, if at all possible, you should notify your employer within 30 days of your accident.  At the Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A., we have been handling Defense Base Act cases for a combined 43 years.  If your employer is denying your claim under a notice defense, contact us today and we can investigate the many ways around this rule for you.  We have been able to prove notice in many ways that you may not have considered.  There are also exceptions to the rule which most employees would not know.  The Defense Base Act is an extension of the Longshore & Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.  These laws are somewhat complicated and confusing.  We can decipher the law for you and educate you on how to make sure you get the benefits you deserve.  You can reach us at 305 595 3350 or by email at mail@gmpcomplaw.com or you can go on our website at www.dbalawyers.com and complete our questionaire on our Contact Us page.  We look forward to putting our experience, reputation and success into your case so that you get an excellent result.  Contact us today!
