The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA) is a law that set up a government program to compensate current or former employees (or their survivors) of the Department of Energy (DOE), its predecessor agencies, and certain of its vendors, contractors, and subcontractors who were diagnosed with a radiogenic cancer, chronic beryllium disease, beryllium sensitivity, or chronic silicosis, as a result of exposure to radiation, beryllium, or silica while employed at covered facilities.
The EEOICPA also provides compensation to individuals (or their eligible survivors) awarded benefits by the Department of Justice under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) and compensates DOE contractor and subcontractor employees, eligible survivors of such employees, and uranium miners, millers, and ore transporters for any occupational illnesses that are causally linked to toxic exposures in the DOE or mining work environment.
If you qualify for benefits under these programs, you may qualify for compensation up to $400,000 plus ongoing medical expenses depending on a few factors. Priority Law will work with you and your doctors to file your claim and handle any appeals necessary to help you get the compensation that that government has set aside for those who qualify. We can also assist you with finding home health care providers if it is needed.
If you feel that you or a family member may qualify for benefits under the EEOICPA, please contact Priority Law. We will help walk you through the process without any cost to you. And you will never be required to pay any fee to Priority Law until we get you compensation.
