On-the-Job Heart Attack, Strokes & Hypertension

Workers' Compensation Lawyers Serving Clients in Taunton & Eastern Massachusetts

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.
  • Strokes are the third most common cause of death.

While heart attacks and strokes are not always fatal, they will place major restrictions in a person's life. When someone suffers a heart attack or stroke in the workplace, it may be as a result of stressful conditions or difficult physical labor. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, can also be caused by work-related stress or exertion.

If you or a loved one have suffered from these conditions while on the job, we can help. Call (508) 206-9900 today for a free consultation.

Proving Your Heart Attack or Stroke Was Related to Your Work

In order to recover workers' compensation benefits, the injured worker must show that his or her injury or illness was caused in the course of his or her employment. The medical expenses arising from a heart attack or stroke will be enormous.

Insurance companies are fully aware of these expenses, and will look for every opportunity to claim that your heart attack or stroke was due to a pre-existing condition and not related to your job duties.

Our Massachusetts workers' compensation attorneys will work hard to prove that your heart attack or stroke happened in the course of your employment. Many factors can cause a heart attack or stroke. For example, working in hot weather for lengthy periods of time can cause a heart attack or stroke. Heavy lifting or extreme physical exertion at work can cause a heart attack or stroke. Our law firm will review all of the medical evidence and build the strongest possible claim.
