Radiation Exposure

Diligently protecting the rights of North Carolina residents

Radiation exposure can happen at a wide range of job sites, according to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). These workplaces include healthcare facilities, research institutions, nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons plants. These radiation sources can pose a significant health risk to workers if the equipment is not properly managed, according to OSHA. If you suffer an injury or illness because of radiation exposure, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

What is radiation exposure?

Radiation exposure occurs when a worker comes in contact with a high level of radiation for even a short period of time. Exposure to dangerous levels of radiation can cause an immediate feeling of nausea and, in the long run, severe damage to internal organs. In Burlington and elsewhere in North Carolina, qualifying for workers' compensation because of radiation exposure can be challenging because you must prove that radiation at work caused your illness. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., our Durham attorneys have experience handling these cases and are equipped to take on even the most difficult workers' comp claims.

Health effects of radiation exposure

The health effects of radiation range considerably. Mild exposure can cause reddening of the skin, while more severe exposure can cause cancer and death within a few days or months of the exposure. The severity of your injury depends on:

  • How much radiation your body was exposed to
  • What type of radiation you came in contact with
  • The route of exposure
  • How long you were exposed to radiation

If you suspect that you have been exposed to radiation, you should see a doctor immediately.
