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.

RECA Home Health Care

The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) was designed to provide compensation to certain types of workers who were exposed to radiation and toxic substances. 

From the 1940s to the 1960s, the U.S. government developed atmospheric nuclear weapons. Many of the people who worked in developing and testing these nuclear weapons later went on to develop critical medical conditions. 

RECA partially compensates these workers for their illnesses. If you qualify for compensation under RECA, you may also be eligible for home health care. Find out more about RECA home health care for covered illness and who is entitled to benefits under RECA by reading on and then contacting a RECA attorney

Home Health Care for RECA Covered Illnesses

The types of debilitating medical conditions that people suffered after being exposed to radiation and toxic substances in the development and testing of nuclear weapons are severe. 

These conditions often make it difficult for such people to continue supporting themselves on a day-to-day basis. RECA makes it possible for these people to get the quality of care they deserve after all they have been through. Some of the different services offered by many home health care providers include:

  • Assisting with household upkeep and cooking
  • Assistance with bathing and hygiene
  • Help with transportation and shopping
  • And other services as needed

Who Is Eligible for Home Health Care under RECA?

Individuals who develop qualifying compensable conditions under RECA may also be entitled to free home health care services, as well. Some of the different types of conditions that may make you eligible for benefits under RECA include:

  • Brain cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Pharynx cancer
  • Esophagus cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Male and female breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cancer of the small intestine
  • Urinary bladder cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Bile duct cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Pneumoconiosis

  • Renal cancer 
  • Lymphomas (but not Hodgkins)
  • Leukemia (but not chronic lymphocytic leukemia)
