There have been several benefits offered to the employees or workers suffering injuries during their employment. It would not be wrong to state that these injuries would not only be physical at times. The employee could suffer from the mental and emotional condition as well due to their injuries occurred at their place of work. The federal and state government has been providing the injured employees and workers with workers compensation programs to help them largely in their hour of need.
Such has been the present times. What if you were an employee or worker under the Department of Energy and had suffered severe illness or medical condition due to exposure to radiation during the cold war? Would you be compensated in any manner now? What if you were the spouse or children of the deceased employee or worker working long back under the DOE? What are your chances of being compensated by the federal or state government? It would be a shame if you were not compensated by the federal or state government for your grave illnesses or serious medical conditions.
You should not fret as the federal and the state government along with DOL EEOICPA has started a program where the employees working or having worked under the Department of Energy would be compensated adequately for their pain and sufferings were undergone due to exposure to radiation or heavy metals. It has been a boon for the employees or their surviving family members. The federal and state government has offered monetary and medical benefits to the employees of the Department of Energy.
These employees, contractors, and sub-contractors should have undergone the pain and suffering when diagnosed with cancer or other medical conditions covered by the EEOICPA while under the employment of DOE. It would be pertinent that these employees should be provided all kinds of medical benefits without any hassle.
