When most people think of work accidents, they think of traumatic incidents that have visible injuries. However, many work injuries cause damage to the inside of our bodies.

Our Encino heart and internal injuries attorney is ready to investigate your workplace injury in order to secure the compensation you are entitled to.

Understanding internal work injuries

The workers’ compensation system in California is designed to help workers obtain coverage for medical expenses and lost income for any work-related incident. This includes any event or exposure at work that causes an injury or aggravates a pre-existing condition. Most people think about external traumatic injuries in these cases. However, common occupational injuries also include incidents that affect a person’s heart or other internal organs.

Heart injuries that are commonly caused or aggravated by the workplace include:

  • coronary heart disease
  • arrhythmias
  • high blood pressure
  • enlargement of the heart

While many of these may have genetic causes, heart injuries can be considered work injuries if they are aggravated or caused by stress on the job.

Other internal injuries that can occur include:

  • Hernias – These occur when part of a person’s internal organ or tissues bulge through part of the abdomen. These injuries can cause significant discomfort and prevent a worker from performing their duties. Often, hernias are caused when a worker is forced to lift heavy weights, has improper training in the workplace, or lacks the necessary equipment to perform their job.
  • Gastrointestinal injuries – These injuries can be aggravated by workplace stress and include any injury that happens to the gastrointestinal tract or gastrointestinal glands. This includes the oral cavity, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, rectum, and anus.

Internal injuries that are caused by the workplace can have lasting effects on a person’s health. In many cases, injuries to the heart or other internal injuries caused by or aggravated by the workplace are denied for coverage by a workers’ compensation insurer. That is because these injuries are harder to pinpoint on a workplace cause. However, that does not mean that workers should suffer.
