Have you been suffering from a chronic illness and think you have become eligible for DOL EEOICPA? You should rest assured to be eligible for various benefits offered by the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act. It has been deemed of great importance that you should qualify for availing the benefits offered under the act.
You would be eligible for benefits only if you were an employee of the Department of Energy and had suffered chronic illness due to exposure to radiation. The catch here is that you should be diagnosed with a chronic illness covered by EEOICPA within the DOE employment period.
You may wonder what if you did not qualify for EEOICPA benefits. Would you be compensated for the chronic illness suffered? There have been several aspects to consider when you look forward to making the most of the services offered by EEOICPA. If you were unable to fulfill the conditions, but you have been an employee of the Department of Energy, you would be compensated with other available programs that you qualify for in the right manner.
You should rest assured that the federal government would take care of the employees of the Department of Energy in the best manner possible. They understand the treating chronic illness would be an expensive affair. Therefore, they would provide you with adequate compensation based on your condition and the amount spent on the medical condition. There would be several other aspects considered by the DOL for providing you adequate compensation.
In case, you were not being compensated for the illness suffered despite qualifying for the requisite stipulations, your best bet would be to hire the services of a competent and qualified attorney to handle your compensation claim. The attorney should use his or her expertise and experience to help you seek the desired claim in the best manner possible.
