Stroke Injury

Stroke Injury Lawyers

Job stress, overexertion and labor-intensive work activities can contribute to a worker suffering a stroke on the job. A stroke is unpredictable. It can strike any person at any time, and it can cause permanent neurological damage. Some industries are more labor-intensive than others, but what may seem to be simple stress can lead to stroke under overexertion. A stroke is a disruption of the blood supply and oxygen supply to the brain caused by blockage or a hemorrhage, and it keeps the affected area of the brain from functioning entirely.

The workers’ comp lawyers on our team are familiar with the challenges workers and their families face after a work-related stroke. We also know the challenges of recovering workers’ compensation benefits related to stroke injury.

Risk Factors For Stroke

In some cases, a worker suffers a stroke somewhere other than the workplace. Some people suffer “silent stroke,” which damages the brain, but shows no external symptoms. However, a silent stroke can put you at increased risk for major stroke in the future. Other risk factors for stroke include:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • Smoking or prolonged exposure to smoke
  • Old age
  • High cholesterol
  • Atrial fibrillation

Many factors can contribute to a stroke. Stress, strain and/or overexertion at work might contribute, but there must be evidence. The location and the severity of the stroke along with early medical response also play a role in how damaging the stroke will be.

Brain damage, and the resulting brain injury, from a stroke is a permanent injury. While difficult to prove it was work stress induced our persuasive and knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorneys can prove that a stroke was a result of a work injury. Additionally, you may also qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
