New York Heart Attack & Stroke Lawyer
Heart attacks and strokes are among the most devastating injuries that people suffer on the job and filing a successful workers’ compensation claim is essential to covering the hefty costs of medical care, recovery, and lost wages. Employees who suffer a heart attack or stroke may also receive Workers’ Compensation benefits if the stroke or heart attack occurred outside of their jobs if stress or overexertion at work contributed to the medical condition. Winning workers’ compensation claim for a stroke or heart attack can be tricky, especially if it occurred outside of the job, but with the help of the right lawyer, such claims have a much higher chance of being approved for maximum benefits.
The attorneys at Munawar & Andrews Santillo LLP (‘Mlawfirm’) are highly experienced trial attorneys who are experts in proving that a heart attack or stroke that occurred outside of the actual performance of a job was still caused by stress or over-exertion from the job.

In addition to collecting workers’ compensation benefits from your employer if you were to suffer one of these injuries while performing your job, you also may have claims against other, “third parties.” “Third parties” would include anyone who was directly contributed to your heart attack or stroke. If you have third party claims, it can become tricky to know who to sue, and having an experienced personal injury lawyer investigate and determine which parties to file claims against can help you get more than just compensation for lost wages and medical expenses. If you successfully sue third parties, you can also get money for pain and suffering and, should the worst happen, for the wrongful death of a family member.
Our lawyers have years of experience and can guide you through the difficult and complicated process of filing a workers’ compensation claim. We work closely with doctors and other experts to carefully prepare your claim and make sure that you have the best chance of receiving an amount that actually reflects the degree of pain and suffering you are experiencing. Insurance companies commonly intrude upon the intimate details of the lives of those who file workers’ compensation claims for heart attacks and strokes, and they will claim that it was other lifestyle choices or genetics that caused the medical condition rather than the stress and strain of the job. We know how to handle the arguments put forth by the insurance companies and know how to prove that, even in the event there are other factors, that the performance of at least contributed to the heart attack or stroke.

Call now and our office will provide you with a full analysis of your situation and assessment of your claim. If you wait too long to file your claim, you could be barred from pursuing it in the future under New York Statute of Limitations law. If you do not notify your employer within 30 days from the date of the accident or the date you discovered you have an injury caused by your job, you could be prevented from claiming benefits. To properly notify your employer, you must also include details as to where the injury occurred and why it happened, though you may give notice orally or in writing.
Additionally, if you are worried that your employer may not recognize your claim, you have only two years from the date of the accident to file a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Board for the majority of claims. For some claims where the effects of an injury are not immediately obvious, the statute of limitations may be longer, but you should inquire about a potential claim right away just to be safe. While you will know immediately if you have a heart attack or stroke, you may not know right away that your job contributed to or caused the medical condition and you should find out before it’s too late.
Finally, it is important to also consult with a physician right away. Give the doctor a complete and detailed description of when and how the accident occurred so that you can get the most precise medical report possible to support your claim. Failure to complete any of these steps could be detrimental to your case and having an attorney by your side increases the chances that your claim will be filed accurately and in a timely manner.

The consolation is free, and we only collect if you receive a settlement or judgment in your favor. Our attorneys are ready and eager to provide you and your family with the expertise and support that will maximize your chances of receiving the compensation you deserve.
