Criteria for Injuries Covered by DBA
Workers who suffer an injury while on an international base are covered by federal workers’ compensation. Qualifying for DBA, however, is a little more complicated than simply filing a claim. Typically, the validity of a claim will be determined by the following criteria:
- Whether the injury was caused by a willful act
- Whether it occurred as a result of the job duties
- How immediately treatment was sought
