The Comair Plane Crash
On August 29th of 2006, Comair Flight 5191 crashed while attempting to take off from Blue Grass Airport near Lexington, Kentucky. Forty passengers and two crew members died in the plane crash; one crew member survived.
Attorneys at Sussman & Simcox were chosen by the family of the one Maryland victim on that flight to represent them in filing suit against the airline. We initiated the suit in federal court in Kentucky, putting together and presenting a compelling picture of the economic and other substantial damages suffered by the family as a result of the plane crash. The result of our efforts was a settlement sufficient to provide for that family’s needs for life.
