Stroke at work

Author Subject: Stroke at work

I recently had a stroke at work. Neither my co-workers or my boss sent me for medical help. They sent me home on my bike. I ended up in emergency room at hospital several hours later. Left side was paralyzed, have regained most of my normal range of function except for left arm.
What are my rights?

Just because you had a stroke at work doesn't make it a work comp claim. You could have been standing in your kitchen at home, and if so, would you have considered that to be work-related?

What state are you in? This can make a difference in if benefits are due as each state has its own statutes and case law. In Florida for example the employment must be the major contributing cause of the injury. Did you suffer a head injury? Were you struck in the head? Please provide some additional facts surrounding how you accident/stroke occurred.
