Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy filed a lawsuit against the airline responsible for the death of Kent Clapp, the former head of Medical Mutual of Ohio, and his fiancée. The lawsuit claims that the airline, Websta’s Aviation Services Inc., was to blame for the wrongful death of the couple because the nine-passenger, turbo-prop plane was not properly equipped with a ground-sensing instrument that could have prevented the crash.
