In our continuing efforts to make the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) both more accessible and understandable, we’ve created a series of short videos in which Hugh Stephens, Esq. explains the Act, along with the various finer points that claimants need to take into consideration in order to be successfully compensated under the Act. Hugh is an environmental attorney who practices environmental litigation.
To keep the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) both accessible and understandable, Hugh continues his clarification of the dose reconstruction process, which he believes is almost indecipherable if you are not a medical physicist.
He pays particular attention to the dosimeter badges that atomic weapons workers wore while employed at nuclear bomb making facilities, how the National Institute for Safety and Health (NIOSH) interprets the data from those badges, and how various factors related to this aspect of the Dose Reconstruction process can complicate an EEOICPA claim.
You’re one step closer to help. Understanding the EEOICPA’s dose reconstruction process is one of the things we do best. If you think you need an attorney to guide you, we’re here to help.
