About Our Firm

  • A Rich history

    Barnett, Lerner, Karsen, & Frankel, P.A. was founded in 1995 by David C. Barnett, Esq., and Barry R. Lerner, Esq. Previously, both attorneys handled claims representing employers and carriers as well as employees who suffered work related injuries.

     

    In 1995, Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lerner decided to create the law firm of Barnett, Lerner, Karsen, & Frankel, P.A. to only represent employees because they did not believe that injured workers were receiving appropriate representation regarding claims against insurance companies and employers. As such, since 1995, the focus of the firm has been on the rights of injured workers, both in the US and internationally, with expatriate compensation claims. Mr. Barnett and Mr. Lerner have litigated hundreds of cases throughout the United States and have filed briefs and appeals in numerous State and Federal jurisdictions.

  • DBA Specialists

    Barnett, Lerner, Karsen, & Frankel, P.A. are personal injury attorneys specializing in Defense Base Act claims. The Defense Base Act provides workers’ compensation benefits (medical care and payment of lost wages) to civilian employees working outside the United States on US military bases or under a contract with the U.S. government for public works or for national defense.

     

    All across the globe, the United States has embassies, military bases, and other developments. Having such a presence overseas requires a large amount of private contractors hired by the government to help with construction, road work, and most support needs. All of these civilian contractors hired by the government are at risk of on-the-job injuries, and when these contractors get hurt, that is when a Defense Base Act attorney is needed.
