The Radiation Exposure Act, or RECA, awards compensation to individuals who have developed serious diseases and cancers due to radiation exposure. This includes exposure during above-ground nuclear weapons testing, as well as exposure to radiation in underground uranium mines.

Exposure includes toxic substances including radiation or radioactive materials, metals, chemicals, and solvents, as well as acids.

Compensation is determined by three factors: impairment, wage loss, and survivorship.
Wage loss is determined by the number of years an employee was unable to work or experienced reduction in earnings as a result of their work-related illnesses.
Impairment is defined as a decrease in function of a body part or organ that ultimately affects the entire body.

Your local benefits specialist can connect you with an independent, honest, and trustworthy attorney experienced with filing RECA claims.
Nuclear Care Partners does not receive any financial compensation for referrals.

Hear from our Patients

Nuclear Care Partners is great to work with. They’re very knowledgeable about the DOL filing process and the different illnesses that can be caused by exposure at the site. They know the EEOICPA inside and out so when someone needs help they can be a resource. I really appreciate them.
