What is a Notice of Controversion and how does it affect my Defense Base Act (DBA) case?

Video Transcription:

A notice of controversion under the DBA is essentially a denial from the employer insurance company denying an injured worker's claim. They file what's called an LS207 form with the Department of Labor and within that form, they list their various defenses and reasons for denial. Once denied, an injured individual typically needs to file an LS18, which refers his or her case to an administrative law judge for a final hearing.
