Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed in Death of Woman Killed In Santa Monica Airport Crash

Airplane crashes, are usually catastrophic resulting in serious injuries and death to passengers and crew aboard the plane. When a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is filed, plaintiffs may seek pre-settlement lawsuit funding to financially withstand a lengthy litigation process, and potential appeal.

A twin-engine Cessna Citation went off a Santa Monica Airport runway, collided with a runway sign, and crashed into a hangar. The plane hangar collapsed on the plane, which then caught on fire. The pilot, his son, and three passengers on board died at the scene. The cause of the accident remains unclear; NTSB officials said the pilot never contacted authorities about a problem and there was no airplane debris on the runway. A preliminary investigation into this September fatality has provided no clues as to why the aircraft crashed.

The family of one of the passengers has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the estate of the pilot, and a real estate/aircraft management company, alleging the pilot was negligent in maintaining, controlling, and landing the aircraft. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

This case may take a year or longer to resolve.
