What is the environmental radiation threshold?
You can sue for a large amount of money by claiming that your health was harmed by a large exposure.
The Environmental Protection Agency defines the environmental threshold as “the level of radiation that is safe to breathe for one year.”
For example, a radiation dose of 100 mSv can cause death if breathed for one hour, and a dose of 2,000 mSr can cause a person to die.
But what about people living far away?
If you live in a state where a state health department doesn’t have a statewide threshold, you’ll be able to sue on your own.
The EPA sets the standard for what qualifies as “safe” for people in certain geographic areas.
For example: If you lived in Alaska, you could sue for exposure to 1,000,000 rads, even if the EPA says it’s safe to do so.
And if you lived near an urban area, you’d be able claim exposure of 100,000-200,000.
But the EPA’s rules don’t include people living in remote or unpopulated areas, such as the Appalachian Mountains, or those in areas where the local health department hasn’t compiled a statewide radon level.
The only people who qualify for a lawsuit under the Environmental Protection Act are those living in areas with a state level of 10.0 mSq/L, which is above the EPA level of 5.0 rads/m3.
So, if you live near a community that doesn’t even have a radon threshold, that would qualify as a class action lawsuit.
The law says that you need to file a lawsuit within 30 days of your exposure, so if you filed your lawsuit by May 1, you can start filing now.
However, you’re not required to wait to file, since you can still take legal action against the EPA and other states that didn’t comply.
To take your case to court, you need an attorney.
If you have a complaint with your state health director or other state agency, you might have to hire a lawyer to represent you.
You might also want to call the U.S. Environmental Protection Office, the agency that regulates the environment.
You can call 1-800-871-7171 to speak to a representative who will explain the law and ask if you can sue.
Here are some resources you can use to learn more about your rights.
The EPA’s website has a list of federal and state rules and regulations that are applicable to you if you’re suing the federal government for environmental exposure.
These are listed under “Defendants.”
They also have resources to help you navigate the various court orders, settlements, and other agreements that can be made.
If your lawsuit involves a state, you should contact the state department of environmental conservation (DEOC) to see if they have an agency-wide environmental radiology program.DEOC is responsible for regulating air pollution, water pollution, and many other environmental issues.
If there are any issues with your complaint, you may need to contact the DEOC for more information.
If you have questions about your case, you or someone you know may be eligible to sue under the Clean Air Act.
To learn more, contact the EPA at (800) 4-621-1091.
