Pond Lehocky Giordano honors those who sacrificed to serve at ground zero on 9/11 and are still suffering from the effects. Many of these first responders fall into high risk categories for Covid-19. After 19 men hijacked four commercial airliners and crashed them into both World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and a western Pennsylvania field, the traumatized American public vowed to “never forget.” Last year, the victims’ compensation fund for those who dies and were sickened by the attacks was extended after a long legislative battle. Now, as the global pandemic persists, first responders are calling for additional coronavirus funds.
Every day, our attorneys continue to fight for these hard-working Americans. Even after the pandemic ends, the battle will not be over. Families and friends who have lost loved ones will likely suffer with financial and emotional hardships for years to come.
It is likely that a Victim Compensation Fund will be set up to compensate the family members of those who died fighting on the frontlines from Covid-19, similar to the Victim Compensation Fund established after 9/11. Pond Lehocky is here to help with our Covid-19 hotline at 267-606-4343.
