North Carolina Radiation Exposure Attorneys

Diligently Protecting the Rights of Injured North Carolina Workers

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. You may also be able to file a third-party claim if someone other than your employer is liable. But the route from injury to compensation can be long and frustrating. That’s where Lanier Law Group comes in. We are committed to providing dedicated, personalized legal services to our clients. If you have questions or concerns about your radiation exposure claim, schedule an appointment today.

Call (855) 757-4204 or contact us online to request a free consultation with a North Carolina radiation exposure lawyer at Lanier Law Group. 

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 North Carolina, qualifying for workers' compensation due to radiation exposure can be challenging because you must prove that radiation at work caused your illness. At Lanier Law Group, our attorneys have experience handling these cases and are equipped to take on even the most difficult workplace accident/injury claims.

Health Effects of Radiation Exposure

The health effects of radiation exposure range considerably. Mild exposure can cause relatively minor effects, such as 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. Your next call should be to a North Carolina radiation exposure attorney at Lanier Law Group. With help from the right legal team, you may be able to start collecting compensation for your damages sooner rather than later.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
