Whether because of expanded uses of the fruits of the nuclear age, or because of more insights into radiation caused diseases, in years to come more employees are likely to find themselves filing claims for workmen's compensation because of alleged radiation-caused diseases or illnesses. What are radiation diseases and injuries? Which occupations are likely to give rise to radiation exposure? Do present workmen's compensation laws provide coverage for such injuries and diseases, and to what extent? How is a claim processed? Can the present laws be improved, and what efforts are being made-or should be made-to im-prove them?
