Workers compensation lawyer Corey Pollard represents police, firefighters, and emergency responders in heart/lung presumption cases across Virginia.
History of the Heart Presumption & Lung Presumption in Virginia
Virginia enacted the Heart and Lung presumption in 1976. It is designed to help police, firefighters, paramedics, and other emergency first responders overcome the trouble they may have proving that their diagnosed heart disease, hypertension, lung disease, or pulmonary condition is related to their employment. This statute is also known as the police and firefighter heart and lung bill.
