The United States Army has named four defense companies as prime contractors on its massive $82 billion Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (“LOGCAP”) contract. LOGCAP is an international program administered by the U.S. Army to provide contracted support to bolster the Army force overseas. In December 2001, LOGCAP III was awarded to Kellogg, Brown and Root (“KBR”). Under LOGCAP IV, KBR competed for task orders with two other bidding contractors, namely DynCorp International, LLC and Fluor Intercontinental Inc.

Of importance, all injured contractors working under the above contracts are covered under the Defense Base Act, regardless of citizenship. The Defense Base Act is a federal workers’ compensation framework that provides medical benefits and compensation benefits to injured contractors, and funeral expenses and death compensation benefits to deceased contractors. The Defense Base Act is an injured workers’ sole remedy for injury, so retaining an experienced attorney to handle your claim at the outset is absolutely critical.
