American Airlines Flight 331
Slack & Davis recently represented passengers of American Airlines Flight 331, which crashed on December 22, 2009. The airplane, a Boeing 737-823, making an international passenger flight from Miami, Florida, to Kingston, Jamaica, overran the runway while landing at the Norman Manley International Airport. Passengers sustained numerous injuries as the aircraft crashed and broke into several pieces.
When handling this type of commercial airline crash involving a crash site outside the U.S. and passengers from multiple countries, our attorneys’ knowledge of the various international laws that govern injuries, wrongful death and survivor actions in aircraft litigation enables Slack & Davis, where appropriate, to file suit in jurisdictions most advantageous to our clients.
Aviation attorneys Michael Slack and Ladd Sanger have handled passenger cases from previous American Airlines and American Eagle airplane crashes, and a number of other non-crash cases against American Airlines involving international flights and passenger injuries under the Montreal Convention. Our attorneys know, understand and have even taught other attorneys about the Montreal Convention, which may apply to passengers injured on international flights.
