Heart Attacks and Strokes
Heart attacks or strokes can happen any time and with no warning. Often, it is difficult to identify the factors that helped induce a heart attack or stroke until long afterwards.
If you had a heart attack at work or think your job contributed to your health problems, consult with one of our attorneys to find out if you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.
Taking Your Heart Attack or Stroke Seriously
If you are concerned that the demands of your job may be partly responsible for a heart attack, stroke, or disabling incident, please consult one of our experienced lawyers. Working with professional, esteemed medical professionals, our lawyers can help determine your rights after a cardiovascular event.
Why should you consult a lawyer after being diagnosed with a heart attack, myocardial infarction, hypertension, or stroke? Over-exertion at work can contribute to heart attacks or strokes. When it does, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
We Worked for Them, Now We Work For You
At CT Injury Lawyers, our workers’ compensation lawyers had once represented insurance companies. We know how the system works and how to fight for your rights. We have decades of experience and will use it to get the compensation you deserve.
Our lawyers know that insurance companies vigorously defend workers’ compensation claims involving heart attacks and strokes. We have more than 30 years of experience fighting for the victims of work-related injuries. Over a hundred attorneys have referred clients to us for representation in all types of workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.
Fighting for Your Rights
Insurance companies will try to highlight risk factors in your lifestyle or genetics that could have caused a heart attack or illness, ignoring the contributing factors often found on the job. Our lawyers have experience defeating these arguments in workers’ compensation cases involving heart attacks.
We are selective about the cases we take on, which allows our lawyers to provide thorough, caring representation to families affected by work-related illnesses. We are not afraid of complex cases, and we have the skill to help victims of:
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary (lung) disease
- Myocardial infarction
- Occupational exposure to toxins
Our law firm often works directly with medical experts to prove how a work environment caused the heart attack or stroke. 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.
