Workers' compensation heart attacks and strokes.

In Georgia, heart attacks and strokes can be considered compensable workers’ compensation claims. However, these cases require a medical evidence relating the heart attack or stroke to the deceased employee’s job. Employers and Insurers frequently incorrectly deny these claims simply because of the heightened level of proof that is required. If you or a loved one have suffered a heart attack or stroke which you feel is work related, contact Atlanta attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835or visit
