Georgia Workers’ Compensation Law


Work-Related Heart Attacks And Cardiac Injuries


Cardiac injuries happen all the time in the workplace. Physical exertion, environmental factors, history of heart disease, dehydration, and stress can all play a part in the cause of work-related heart injuries. The types of injuries can range from heart attacks (myocardial infarction), complications due to an aggravation of an underlying cardiomyopathy, strokes, transient ischemic attacks, and angina pectoris.

Proving cardiac injuries is very difficult under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act. If you or a loved one has experienced a heart injury on the job, you need legal representation from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who has handled serious cardiac injuries.

Prior to founding this firm, Bryan Hawkins defended UPS in cases involving cardiac injuries, and he has the knowledge and experience to ensure your rights are protected under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act.

Tragically, employees who experience cardiac injuries on the job often pass away. In those cases, we fight to ensure the employee’s loved ones are financially provided for and the burial expenses are covered by the insurance company.
