Radiation burn injuries occur when the skin is exposed to high levels of things such as UV rays or nuclear energy. People who deal with radiation equipment on a daily basis are more likely to sustain these burns, making them a common healthcare worker injury. However, anyone exposed to radiation on the job is at risk for these often debilitating and deadly burns. If you have suffered a radiation burn, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim. One of the North Carolina work injury lawyers at White & Stradley would be happy to meet with you to discuss your rights and help you determine the most effective course of action. Consequences of Radiation Burns Radiation burns can have far reaching consequences including significant pain, disfigurement and scarring, an increased risk for cancer, and even death. Treatment for these burns can be long and may not fully protect you against all long-term consequences. If your injury was sustained on the job, you are entitled to compensation through our state’s workers’ compensation program. We are prepared to help you file your claim and see that you get the full compensation you are due.
