Heart Attacks & Strokes
Ever-increasing demands for more production, stressful workplace environments, and deadlines can cause individuals to suffer heart attacks or strokes. Studies have shown that people who are on tight deadlines (short periods of very high stress) are six times more likely to suffer a heart attack than others.

At Pulgini & Norton, our workers’ compensation attorneys represent people throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, Bristol, Middlesex, and Worcester counties who have suffered heart attacks or strokes as a result of their work. Examples of conditions or incidents that can cause a work-related heart attack or stroke include:
- Physical exertion in hot weather
- Heavy lifting
- Overworking / long hours
Because a heart attack or stroke will usually result in tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and significant time away from work, employers and their workers’ compensation insurance carriers know that proving a heart attack or stroke was work-related is difficult, and they are eager to try and avoid paying benefits in these cases.
Our attorneys have nearly 40 years of combined experience and have handled cases involving all types of work-related injuries, including heart attacks and strokes. Through this experience we have become well-acquainted with the evidence that is necessary to prove these cases. As important is the fact that when you ask us to put that experience to work for you, you can rest assured that it will be an experienced attorney who personally handles your case.
