Heart Attacks / Stroke

What if you have a heart attack or stroke at work, are these covered by workers’ compensation? It depends on whether your medical records indicate the heart attack or stroke was caused by some sort of work activity; e.g., physical exertion, heat or workplace stress.  In cases of heart attack or stroke, an insurance company will most likely deny your claim from the very beginning. This is standard practice.  Do not let an insurance companies’ reflex reaction determine your future.  Proving that your heart attack or stroke was work-related requires expertise.  We know how to obtain medical evidence to support these types of claim and will leverage our experience in your favor.  Contact our office today to discuss in further detail.
