Work And Heart-Related Stress

Policemen and firefighters place themselves in harm's way everyday to be the heroes of society. However, the stress associated with these high-risk jobs has been known to place these workers at a higher risk for stress-related medical conditions, such as heart disease or hypertension. At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I help clients recover the workers' compensation benefits they need to manage their medical condition. Contact me for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Providing You Compensation Regarding Heart-Related Maladies

Heart disease and hypertension (high blood pressure) are serious medical conditions which can inhibit your ability to perform routine job functions safely — especially as a police officer or firefighter. When not properly monitored and treated, these medical conditions can be life threatening, causing a:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Aneurysm

If you are a municipal police officer or fire fighter suffering from heart disease or hypertension due to a stress-related work condition, it is important to seek proper medical attention. In addition, if you meet certain conditions, I can help you obtain disability benefits through workers' compensation to alleviate the cost of medical expenses and lost wages incurred as a result of your heart disease or hypertension.

Survivors' Benefits For Families Of Policemen And Firemen

When a spouse dies suddenly of a heart attack, it is difficult to know where to turn. You likely have many questions about your spouse's sudden death and if it could have been prevented. While I cannot turn back time, I can help you obtain rightful survivors' benefits so that your family is financially secure during this difficult time. In addition, I have the perseverance to appeal denied survivors' benefits.
