Pond Lehocky Giordano Prevails in Two COVID-19 Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits Cases on Behalf of SEPTA Union Members

In two recent lawsuits involving deceased SEPTA employees who died after contracting COVID-19 at work, Pond Lehocky Giordano’s legal team, led by Samuel H. Pond, secured lifelong workers’ compensation benefits for the surviving spouses of those hard-working, dedicated employees — one of whom left behind a disabled child.

As was to be expected, these cases were hard-fought. SEPTA and its witnesses refused to back down from their arguments that our clients contracted COVID outside of work. But the factual and expert medical testimony our witnesses provided the presiding judges persuaded them to award our clients’ families the lifelong workers’ compensation benefits they were entitled to.

SEPTA, large corporations, and their insurance companies do not want to pay out workers’ compensation death benefits to employees who lost their lives after contracting COVID-19 at work. They will fight tooth and nail to avoid doing so.

Pond Lehocky Giordano did not become the largest workers’ compensation law firm in Pennsylvania, one of the largest in the U.S., and the go-to firm for union members because we back down from a fight. We’re not afraid to fight and hold accountable the biggest employers, their insurance companies, and their armies of lawyers after they deny COVID-19 workers’ compensation death benefits to our clients.

For those dearly departed union members whose employers are refusing to pay their families the death benefits they’re entitled to, the attorneys and staff of Pond Lehocky Giordano are honored to help the surviving family members fight those employers and force them to pay the death benefits the law requires them to provide.
