Last November, a 10-passenger plane was approaching Akron Fulton International Airport when it crashed roughly two miles from the runway. The plane clipped power lines before it went through an apartment building and burst into flames. All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers from a Florida-based real estate company were killed. There was no one inside the four-unit apartment building at the time. No one on the ground was injured.
After a yearlong investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has determined that pilot error caused the fiery crash, among a litany of other wrongdoings. Despite both pilots completing a flight training program, NTSB investigators found “the crew’s action during the flight revealed ineffective coordination and inefficient responsibilities, failure to make checklists, failure to call out and poor pilot briefing. Blame was also affixed on the aviation company for inadequate hiring, pilot training and aircraft maintenance, as well as having a “casual attitude toward compliance.” The board also placed blame on the Federal Aviation Administration for failing to provide proper oversight of the company regarding compliance with regulations.
Prior to the recent report by the NTSB, several families filed wrongful death lawsuits against the estate of both pilots, as well as the owner and operator of the plane. The lawsuits allege that negligence led to the crash and ultimate death of their loved ones. The complaints contend that the pilots “operated the plane at a dangerously low altitude, failed to listen to warnings about weather conditions on the ground and didn’t chose an alternative landing site.” They also claim that the company that owned the plane did not properly maintain or test the plane. They request a jury trial.
It is fair to say that no one is prepared for the sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one in a manner such as this. Though no amount of compensation that can bring back their loved one or diminish their loss, it may help them achieve a sense of justice and peace in knowing that the party or parties responsible for their loss have been held accountable. It has already been a year; it could take at least another year or more to reach a settlement. If any of the families are struggling to sustain themselves financially through the long court battle, they may want to consider lawsuit funding.
Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance against your pending claim. This means you can receive cash today and repay the advance once your case settles. The money can be used for anything you wish, although is typical used to pay medical bills, day-to-day living expenses, or any other financial obligations.
A lawsuit cash advance is easy to apply for, requires no credit check or employment history, no upfront fees or costs, and no monthly payment need to be made. ‘Lawsuit loan’ companies look only to the value and quality of the lawsuit for collateral. Personal finances do not matter. Most importantly, the money is provided on a non-recourse basis, meaning if the case is lost the repayment is completely waived. Once an applicant is approved, the money is sent, by check or wire, within 24 – 48 hours.
