August 6, 2009

Document: Widow wants trial for last suit in Comair crash

The aviation accident attorneys at Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. are representing the widow and two daughters of a 39-year-old man in a wrongful death lawsuit arising from the Comair Flight 5191 airplane crash. As the three-year anniversary of the tragic airplane crash approached, aviation negligence attorney David Rapoport was interviewed by the press regarding the status of the lawsuit, the last outstanding passenger wrongful death case in the Comair Flight 5191 air disaster.

The Comair Flight 5191 airplane crashed at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky, after the pilots attempted to take off from the wrong runway — a general aviation strip too short for commercial jets. The National Transportation Safety Board cited the pilots’ failure to notice clues that they were on the wrong runway as the primary cause of the airplane crash, which occurred on August 27, 2006.
