Radiation Exposure Benefits: Do You Need Help Getting Yours?

If you suffer from radiation exposure or cancer and need help getting the benefits you need, ask an advocate for help now. Men and women who work around uranium and other radioactive substances can become very sick over time. Some individuals may even develop cancer. An advocate can help you obtain the benefits you need today. 

How Does Radiation Exposure Affect You? 

Although uranium and other substances play a large role in modern society today, the substances can cause serious health issues for the people exposed to them. People exposed to radiation can develop a host of health complications over time, including cancer. Without the right medical care, radiation cancer can become worse.

Your doctors may already provide some treatments for your cancer or condition. However, the treatments may cost more than your insurance provider is willing to pay. You may also use your own funds to pay for your treatments. If you don't have the insurance or funds to pay for your long-term treatments, you may not receive services in the future.

You can fight for your radiation treatments and benefits with an advocate's help.

How Can an Advocate Assist You?

An advocate works with patients exposed to radiation and other substances to receive the benefits they need to stay well. An advocate can do many things you may not have the ability to do yourself, including finding government compensation programs online or near your location. The programs offer many types of compensation, such as medical care benefits and disability funds.

An advocate may need a number of things from you before they work on your case, including the:

  • date of your radiation exposure
  • names of your current doctors or medical facilities
  • state or condition of your health

Some types of radiation compensation programs can expire after a specific time period. An advocate can use the date of your exposure to determine what type of program you need the most. 

Other types of programs may require government assistance to continue. An advocate can keep track of those programs for you. If the requirements for the programs change, an advocacy group can help you obtain the information you need to meet those changes. 

An advocacy group or advocate may also help you overcome the legal obstacles you face in getting your compensation. Some people can't receive their radiation benefits because of unfair job practices or employers. An advocacy group can help you find an attorney who can fight your employer for you.
