Work-Related Heart Attacks or Myocardial Infarctions

One of the leading killers of people in the United States is a heart attack. Many of us go through our daily lives never considering the possibility that we have heart disease. Some of us are lucky, others suffer the consequence of not addressing this potentially fatal condition. In the realm of workers' compensation, people with blocked arteries put themselves at greater risk when they work in a job that causes over-exertion. If you are doing a manual labor job in hot temperature, your body is working harder to cool itself off. You are sweating more to cool yourself off and your heart is in overdrive to help produce enough oxygen to your body to allow it to continue to perform the task at hand. If you are doing manual labor in cold temperature, the same phenomena holds true although your body is trying to stay warm which in turn means more blood flow to your extremities and more strain on your heart. Even if you are working in a comfortable climate, you can still over exert yourself. If you had a heart attack on the job and need answers, please call us for a free consultation at 1 800 952 9640.
