An aviation negligence lawsuit was filed today by Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. on behalf of a passenger who incurred severe injuries on April 19, 2002, when the Piper PA-32RT-300T airplane crashed shortly after takeoff from Porter County Airport in Valparaiso, Indiana. The aviation negligence lawsuit, which was filed in Valparaiso, alleges that the airplane crash occurred as a result of negligent piloting and names the pilot, his employer and the corporation that owned the airplane as defendants. A second lawsuit, also filed today, seeks a declaratory judgment against an insurer that disputes whether its insurance policy covers the crash.
