Family Recovers Confidential Settlement for Air Crash Victim
The crash of a Boeing 747 passenger jet en route from Asia to the United States claimed more than 80 lives, including a prominent physician from the Cleveland, Ohio, area. Jamie Lebovitz was dispatched to investigate and litigate this international air disaster. After several years of investigation and pretrial discovery, it was established that the Boeing 747 pilots attempted to depart on a runway that was closed for construction. As the aircraft sped down the runway, it struck construction barriers and equipment prior to bursting into flames.
A civil action was brought in the Federal District Court in Los Angeles, and Lebovitz was appointed by the court to the Steering Committee in charge of the litigation. Among the cases resolved was that of the physician for the sum of $5 million.
