Robert and I are very pleased with Mr. Hugh Stephens and all that he has done for us. From the first moment we spoke, we sensed that though Mr. Stephens exhibits sharp business acumen, he cares deeply about his clients and he has a huge heart.

I tried to get others to help me with this claim, and it wasn"t until I hired Mr. Stephens that things started happening. I would recommend any one to get in touch with him . I would go to him again, if i ever needed to.

I had other attorneys hired in Cortez, Colorado and Grand Jct., Colorado to assist me with receiving my uranium claim, but they were not successful. I was advised by an employee of CNS of Stephens & Stephens, LLP good work. I contacted them & they took my case It was settled very quickly. I have been very pleased with this group & would advise others of their prompt service. I would recommend them to others. Respectfully, Frankie Knuckles

My family used Stephen’s and Stephen’s for a settlement case. We were extremely pleased with all they did. They were very professional, easy to get a hold of, and invaluable when it came to answering questions and handling complicated Department of Labor issues and forms. They also did everything in a very timely manner. I have already recommended them to other people.

I have been represented by Hugh Stevens for several years now, He and his staff has made everything so easy for me. I had lung cancer from working in the uranium processing industry, they have opened so many doors for me and made dealing with DOL so much easier. They always answer my questions in a very timely manner. I have referred several other people to him and he has been able to get them through this process also. There are benefits that I was not aware of that he has brought to my attention and been able to lead me through the process of obtaining them. I would most highly recommend him to lead anyone through this process.

When I first contacted Stephens & Stephens I was at the end of my rope with DOL. Hough and his staff got me on track and handled everything with DOL and just made this process so easy. Do not know where I'd be with out them. They are able to communicate at a layman's level and understand the client. Would strongly recommend this firm.

Our initial conversation with Mr. Stephens was productive & reassuring. His previous experience with similar cases was obvious and very helpful, in both asking us specific questions for clarification & also addressing our own questions. Breanna is also a great asset to their team.

I have referred several friends to Hugh Stephens and they were more satisfied than they ever expected. I would refer him with confidence to anyone in need. I trust when he speaks for me, for example, in court. He is a good communicator and a deep thinker. He is well respected in his profession. He handles environmental law, injury law, and medical malpractice. He is tactful and direct and knows what he is doing. He knows the legal briar patches well.

EEOICPA Part E Covered Illnesses

Part E of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) provides for an impairment benefit to eligible energy employees and, in some cases, their surviving family members. 

Cash compensation and medical benefits could be yours if you succeed in filing a claim connecting your impairment and/or lost income as a result of an occupational illness brought on by exposure to toxic substances at a Department of Energy (DOE) facility. 

If you’ve developed a medical condition or suffered physical impairment due to your work as an energy employee, you deserve the right to have a compassionate and timely determination made about your possible compensation. Read below to learn more about EEOICPA Part E covered illnesses, and don’t hesitate to get help for your EEOICPA claim from Stephens & Stephens. 

Who Qualifies for Benefits Under Part E of EEOICPA?

According to the AMA, medical impairment is defined as the “loss, loss of use, or derangement of any body part, organ system, or organ function.” 

When you suffer a medical impairment or other condition as the result of coming into contact with radiation or toxic chemicals in your capacity as a DOE contractor or subcontractor, the consequences can be vast for both you and your family. 

Fortunately, cash compensation and the payment of medical expenses may be available for the following people who suffered a medical condition as the result of coming into contact with toxic substances:

Under Part E of the EEOICPA, toxic substances are taken to include things such as chemicals, solvents, acids, heavy metals, and other toxins beyond radiation. 

Many different types of medical conditions qualify for Part E compensation, including those covered under Part B. Medical conditions that cause impairment and inhibit the realization of activities of daily living (ADL) are prominent, including those impacting the respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous, and endocrine systems. 

One common example of a medical condition experienced by Part E claimants is chronic beryllium disease, which can worsen over time and leave you with debilitating symptoms. 

Unsure if your medical condition or impairment qualifies under Part E? Contact Stephens & Stephens for a free evaluation. 

Compensation Available Under Part E

The Department of Labor is responsible for executing benefits delivery to all eligible claimants. 

Some of the benefits that the department will cover before and after your impairment claim is processed include:

  • One impairment rating
  • All tests need to receive an impairment evaluation
  • Lost income and survivor benefits up to $250,000
  • Medical expenses and benefits (not counted toward the $250,000)

No one ever expects to have to sacrifice their health and well-being for their work. When exposure to radiation or other toxic chemicals changes you or a loved one’s life, consider learning whether or not you’re eligible for compensation.
