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.
Given the sometimes tricky minutiae of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Act (EEOICPA) claims process, Hugh outlines the Dose Reconstruction process used by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to determine the Probability of Causation (POC) in EEOICPA claims. He also reviews the required probability that an atomic weapons worker’s illness(es) were at least 50 percent caused by exposure to radiation and toxic chemicals while making atomic weapons for the Department of Energy (DOE). The likelihood of your getting compensation may depend on whether NIOSH used an overestimate, underestimate, or best estimate in determining probabilities.
Navigating through the Dose Reconstruction Process maze is one of the things we do best. We can support you through the process and increase the likelihood you’ll get the compensation you deserve.
