Under GA Workers Compensation law, “injury” and “personal injury” shall not “include heart disease, heart attack, the failure or occlusion of any of the coronary blood vessels, stroke, or thrombosis unless it is shown by a preponderance of competent and credible evidence, which shall include medical evidence, that any of such conditions were attributable to the performance of the usual work of employment.” Therefore, if you can show it's work related, it's covered.
