Work Related Heart Attack And Stroke Claims

Work Related Heart Attack & Stroke Compensation Lawyers Serving Greater Hartford

Whether or not a stroke happened while a person is at work, is not the sole factor to determine whether work was a contributing factor to the injury. It will often take both a strong lawyer and a strong medical team to prove that a stroke is work related. Heart disease and specifically heart attacks are the second leading killer of Americans today. Suffering from a heart attack or stroke can happen at anytime, often without any warning. It’s difficult to identify the different symptoms that induce a heart attack or stroke until someone suffers an attack. If you have suffered a heart attack or stroke at your workplace or believe the work you are doing is affecting your health, make sure to reach out to one of our experienced attorneys to see if you potentially qualify for any workers’ compensation benefits.

Making A Workers’ Compensation Claim in Hartford

Your health and well being is always a top priority. If you’ve suffered a heart attack or stroke at work due to the demands of your job, it’s in your best interest to contact Costello, Coombes, & Brown LLP. Insurance companies will try to highlight risk factors in your lifestyle or genetics in order to overturn your claim.  Our lawyers have years of experience refuting and successfully winning these workers’ compensation cases involving heart attacks. At CCB Law we are not afraid to take on complex cases. We can defend your claims regarding health related issues or conditions due to the workplace. Some work related conditions include:
  • Heart attacks and strokes caused by physical work related activity: A result of using heavy equipment or perform strenuous physical activity. This risk also increases if working in high temperatures.
  • Heart attacks caused by emotional factors: Being yelled at, witnessing tragedy are examples of emotional stress on a job
  • Heart attacks caused by medical treatment: If a patient sustains a heart attack caused by stress from undergoing an MRI and being in a tight space, the heart attack will be considered related to the work injury.
Over 10% of strokes occur because of work stress. Stress hormones increase blood pressure, and when those hormones are around long-term, it can lead to high blood pressure, the leading cause of stroke. Stress is recognizable by two types of triggers including physical and emotional stress. Stress can be set off by chemical reaction in the body if you’re exerting a lot of energy physically while at your place of work.
When seeking medical care for a stroke or heart attack, it is very important to provide all health care providers with information concerning stress at your job because its absence from the medical records may make the workers’ compensation claim much more difficult. That’s why we work directly with medical experts to prove your case and rule out any invaluable information that could be used against you. And if you have lost a loved one to an occupational illness or accident, we will provide you with compassionate representation while protecting your rights.
