At the Mara Law Firm we are proud to fight for the rights of workers who are injured in Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere overseas while covered by the Defense Base Act.

NATIONWIDE What Should I Do If I Have PTSD | PTSD And The DBA

If you are a DBA worker who worked in Iraq, Afghanistan, or other high-conflict areas, then you may have trouble dealing with the aftermath. If so, you aren’t alone. Many workers suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and experience debilitating symptoms. These may include:

  • Depression/feelings of helplessness or hopelessness
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Nightmares
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Crying spells
  • Hypervigilance

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder And The Defense Base Act

Under the DBA, PTSD cases are compensable if your PTSD is related to your DBA work.

PTSD And Medical Care

In the best of all worlds, you are able to get the medical treatment you need and actually get better. PTSD is accepted as an occupational disease by the Department of Labor and is therefore covered by DBA.

The Courts Are Familiar With PTSD Cases And Understand The Complex Medical And Psychological Issues You Are Facing

Judges who are involved in DBA cases are all too familiar with the devastating effects of PTSD. As your DBA attorneys, it is our goal to get you the compensation and the help you need to move forward with your life.

You Will Need Medical Evidence Supporting Your PTSD Claim

Medical documentation is necessary to help you get the lifetime weekly compensation benefits you need and deserve. We help you obtain records that are vital in proving your case.

  • I remember screaming at a dear friend of mine saying, “WHY WON’T THE INSURANCE COVER MY TREATMENT!” He said, “…because they know if they do it will increase your settlement.” I said, “WHAT SETTLEMENT! I JUST WANT TO GET TREATMENT! I DIDN’T ASK FOR A SETTLEMENT!” Somewhere I found out that for some insurance companies they are more concerned with protecting their money. This means you are thinking about treatment and getting better while they are thinking about money. Get someone that is on your side that will fight for you. They fought for me…and won.

  • Mr. Mara and his firm helped me file a claim for death benefits on behalf of my late husband. I was very pleased with his knowledge, research, and representation regarding my DBA claim for death benefits. I would absolutely recommend him and its associates to my friends, family, and others needing an attorney who specializes in employment, personal injury, and death benefits. Mr. Mara was very compassionate, timely, and responsive to my family’s needs. I can’t thank him enough.

Mr. Mara had my best interests in settling my case and I am very appreciative of all he and his staff did for me. If I ever needed help or had simple questions, Mr. Mara and his staff were always available to take my calls and help me. Highly recommend this firm!

  • Dave Mara  comes with a very high recommendation. He took a workmans compensation case for me and really handled it well. It was an unclear case, and a new issue that the WC most likely had never seen. He kept me up to date with the long confusing process and was very understanding and sympathetic to my plight( I was the victim of a violent crime). Dave has no big lawyer shenanigans and dramatic posing, he is a down to earth, fair , honest hard working lawyer who really does not seem like an an attorney at all. I recommend anyone in the SD area to consult with Dave it was a painless process.
