Plane Crash – $750K

The Ziff Law Firm represented the family of an amateur pilot who was tragically killed when air traffic controllers failed to advise the pilot of a low altitude warning that was loudly sounding in the control tower. Initially, the air traffic controllers denied that any audible warning had sounded but after grueling depositions of many witnesses, it became clear that a warning HAD sounded but had NOT been reported to the pilot as required by federal regulations. In fact, one witness who originally denied hearing any warning was forced to attend a second deposition where he finally admitted that he had not testified truthfully in his first deposition and that he DID hear the warning. Sometimes persistence pays off!
