High-tech employee’s heart attack during connection flights deemed work-related injury

Despite objections from the National Insurance Institute, a plaintiff who suffered a heart attack during travel was able to successfully appeal his claim and receive financial compensation. The court ruled that the number of connecting flights and duration of the flight constituted an unusual event and ordered a medical expert to examine the connection between the heart attack and the flight. The expert confirmed the connection and recognized the heart attack as a work accident, entitling the plaintiff to a disability allowance of 32%. He was also entitled to retroactive payment and future monthly allowance. The National Insurance Institute responded by emphasizing their respect for the court’s ruling, acknowledging that such rulings can occur despite their initial objections. In conclusion, this case highlights the importance of seeking legal assistance when dealing with work-related injuries or illnesses.
