The Heart Bill does provide for a requirement of disability in order for a claim to be made. Essentially, disability is one of the four elements that we look at with any new case. The disability is what is considered the accident with regard to a worker's compensation claim involving a Heart Bill issue. There has to be some measure of disability. That doesn't mean that you are permanently disabled from your job, it means that you've had some limited period of disability. Maybe even a short period, maybe a number of hours where you couldn't do your normal job because of the condition you were claiming. If your hypertension kept you from doing your normal job for an hour, that may very well be sufficient. Likewise, if you had chest pain, and were diagnosed with a cardiac condition and only missed a day or even a few hours, that is normally sufficient disability to trigger a claim.
