Defense Base Act Attorneys

The Firm



We are your advocates.

Welcome to the Defense Base Act practice of Grossman Attorneys at Law. We are an experienced and caring team of skilled professionals committed to helping clients litigate Defense Base Act claims. Our lead attorney, Howard S. Grossman is a Martindale-Hubbell AV-Rated attorney with 25 years experience litigating personal injury and workers compensation claims on behalf of injured claimants through out the United States. Our unique experience sets us apart from other law firms.

Established in 1990, the firm has represented clients throughout the United States in Defense Base Act claims before the U.S. Department of Labor.  We work with clients to maximize their financial recovery for unexpected injuries and illnesses. We are trial lawyers who are prepared to try your case before the Administrative Law Judges through out the United States.

If you or a family member has been injured overseas, we understand and appreciate the trying times that you and your family are undergoing while waiting for the insurance carrier to process your claim – deciding whether it is going to pay your claim, and provide you with medical care. We can be your advocate to fight for your rights under the Defense Base Act. We provide 24/7 accessibility, and build direct relationships with our clients. We offer translators in Portuguese, French, German, Spanish and Arabic.

We charge no attorneys’ fees or costs to you unless we recover benefits for you. If we are successful, the insurance company is usually ordered to pay reasonable attorneys’ fees to the injured worker’s lawyer.

Our Defense Base Act lawyers assist injured workers employed by a civilian contractor under a contract with the United States residing anywhere in the world, including foreign countries: Canada, Australia, France, Great Britain, Uganda, Kenya, and Peru.
