Who Can Terminate My Heart and Lung Benefits?

Who Can Terminate My Heart and Lung Benefits?

Heart and Lung Act benefits offer full salary benefits and medical benefits to qualified civic workers such as police officers, firefighters and others. Unlike workers’ compensation, Heart and Lung Act benefits cover the full amount of salary for these workers, recognizing the unique contribution these employees make to our cities and state.

Heart and Lung Act benefits are only available for temporary disabilities. As such, they can be terminated if an injury is found to be permanent. They can also be terminated by your employer if you are no longer being prevented from working. This may mean your employer assigns you light job duties or accommodates you in some way so you can continue to work with your disability.

Who Is Responsible for Heart and Lung Act Benefits Termination?

Even if your employer believes your injuries are no longer permanent or you otherwise do not qualify for Heart and Lung Act benefits, he or she cannot simply stop your benefits. You are entitled to have a hearing before your benefits can be terminated. Your initial hearing gives you a chance to listen to why your employer wants to terminate your benefits and gives you a chance to respond.

You have the right to have legal representation at these hearings, and it is advisable to have an attorney present to protect your rights. In addition to initial hearing, you can appeal to the courts if your benefits are terminated.

If your Heart and Lung Act benefits are in danger of being terminated, contact KBG Injury Law for a consultation. The attorneys at KBG Injury Law have worked with many civil workers covered by Heart and Lung Act benefits as well as with many workers covered by workers’ compensation. Our attorneys have the resources and knowledge to represent you in court, initial hearings and negotiations.
