Colombian Contractors Injured in Iraq or Afghanistan

Are You a Colombian Contractor Hired by the U.S. to Work in Iraq or Afghanistan?

If you are from Colombia, you may have taken a high paying job to work for the U.S. in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Have You Been Injured While On Contract with the US Government?

If you were injured while working in Iraq or Afghanistan, you are most likely covered by the Defense Base Act.
