Thirty nine years ago on March 28, 1979, one of the nuclear reactors at Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg overheated and came within 1,000 degrees of a full meltdown. This could have been the greatest nuclear tragedy in US history.
Even though there was no meltdown, there was a radiation leak which was discovered shortly after the reactor was shut down. Though, thankfully, the exposure was limited and the workers did not sustain any long term damage, they were still exposed to toxic radiation.
Many workers do not realize that if they are exposed to a chemical at work which causes some sort of reaction to their skin or eyes, they may be eligible to file a claim under Ohio workers’ compensation for medical benefits. Some exposures may be so severe that you may be out of work for many months.
