Stamford Heart Disease/Hypertension Attorney
Stamford, Connecticut, Workers' Compensation Attorney
Workers' Compensation Benefits for Police Officers and Firefighters
Policemen and firefighters place themselves in harms 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.
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
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.
