Are Heart Attacks and Related Heart Problems Caused by Physical Trauma or Exertion At Work Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Do you think you have had a work related heart attack? Many workers and employers have the misconception that workers who suffer heart attacks, episodes of angina, and other heart related problems are not entitled to workers’ compensation benefits as a result of their heart condition. This may not be true. A worker is entitled to workers compensation benefits for these conditions if they are related by job related physical trauma, work exertion or some other work or job related condition. Workers’ compensation benefits may also be available if work aggravated a pre-existing condition.
However, as with any work related medical condition, medical proof is required, and employers and their workers’ compensation carriers will likely contest the causal relationship between the job and the heart condition. Therefore, if you have had a work related heart condition, you need to contact the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Freeburn & Hamilton as soon as possible.
