HEART ATTACK AT WORK
On-the-Job Stroke or Heart Attack
While not every heart attack or stroke is job-related, there are certain instances when unusual exertion and stress related to the job may be to blame for these conditions. This is especially true when physically challenging work is far beyond the usual requirements of the job. Workers who suffer heart attacks and strokes on the job deserve workers’ compensation benefits.
At the law firm of Martin Law, our firm has helped thousands of workers in Pennsylvania obtain compensation for injuries suffered because of on-the-job accidents, as well as strokes and heart attacks caused by working conditions.
If you were injured on the job, our lawyers are eminently equipped to protect your rights. We practice exclusively in workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability law, and we bring 30 years of focused experience to your case.
Schedule a free consultation by calling us at 215.587.8400 to tell us about your injury.
Heart Attack at Work
Cases of unusual exertion that lead to heart attacks and strokes can happen in:
- Farms and agricultural jobs
- Lumber stores
- Hospitals and clinics
- Industrial factories
- Retail stores
- Construction sites
Since insurance carriers and employers may not agree that a heart attack or a stroke is related to the job, it is important for your attorney to protect your rights and help you prove that your accident is eligible. As one of the largest workers’ compensation firms representing injured workers in Pennsylvania, we work for the best interests of our clients in every case.
