We Can Explain and Defend Your Rights

Former President Clinton signed the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program into law in 2000. The law is designed to compensate individuals injured in the production of nuclear weapons, nuclear energy and other energy-related industries. Under the program, workers have strong claims to compensation following injuries.

We can investigate your injuries, gather evidence and build a strongest possible case to present to federal agencies. Also, though the EEOICPA program was designed to make up for deficiencies in workers' compensation benefits, you may still have a right to benefits under the workers' compensation program. We can handle both claims.

EEOICPA claims are complex and are presented to Department of Labor representatives flown to Tennessee from Washington, D.C. We can handle all aspects of your claim, and we accept work on a contingency fee basis so that no lawyer fee will be charged unless you receive benefits. For more information, please contact our firm.
