Hypertension & Cardiac Injuries

Law Firm Proving Workplace Hypertension, Brain and Cardiac Injuries in Orange County

Attorneys that take the difficult cases

If you have suffered a heart attack or other work-related cardiac injuries, the tenacious attorneys at Tous Law Group are prepared to assist you. It can be difficult to prove stress-related job illnesses, but we understand that you have a high-pressure job environment that has caused or contributed to your high blood pressure or even a stroke. The insurance adjusters may try to blame your home life or other factors for your hypertension, but we know how to establish it was your job or work environment. Don’t face this challenge alone; let us help you.

Types of cardiac injuries

The causes of work-related cardiac injuries can vary greatly. While performing your job duties, you may have suffered a catastrophic accident, electrocution or ongoing and severe emotional trauma. Your job-related medical problems may have started with an ulcer, headaches and insomnia that evolved into a heart attack. These types of conditions are all due to stresses, tensions and abuse while on the job. Examples of a cardiac work injury are:

  • Angina
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Coronary disease
  • Heart attack
  • High blood pressure
  • Hypertension related to work injury
  • Blunt cardiac injury
  • Stroke

If you have suffered any of the above injuries and you believe they are job-related, contact a workers’ compensation lawyer at Tous Law Group to discuss your case and qualifying for workers’ comp.

Proving cardiac injuries

Outside of blunt cardiac injuries, most types of cardiac conditions can be difficult to prove were caused by your job. Hypertension can be the result of diet, genetics and stress that is not related to work. We thoroughly investigate the conditions at work that caused your condition, including:

  • Unreasonable physical exertion
  • Job threats
  • Environmental factors
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Dehydration
  • History of heart disease
  • Stress
  • Employer mistreatment

By eliminating your employer’s arguments before they are made, we obtain the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive for your cardiac injuries. Sometimes we approach these types of cases differently from when a traumatic accident occurs. Detail-oriented investigation and thorough preparation are necessary to successfully prove the cardiac injury was work-related.
