The family of a Pennsylvania man who died on the job was recently able to utilize such a source to successfully argue against a judgment issued by a Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board. The Board had ruled that her husband, who collapsed and died of a heart attack during the middle of his 14-hour work shift, could have died at any time due to his allegedly unhealthy lifestyle. Yet the victim’s wife presented testimony from a cardiologist who cited the difficult and strenuous working conditions her husband faced in his job as the primary reason for his death. The judge in the case ultimately agreed, reversing the Board’s decision.
