AC624 crash: MacGillivray Law to file class action lawsuit
A second lawyer, Ray Wagner, says his firm is considering a class action lawsuit as well
One Nova Scotia law firm will file a class action lawsuit representing passengers of the crashed Air Canada flight in Halifax, and a second law firm may soon do the same.
Air Canada Flight 624 crash-landed Sunday morning in Halifax with 133 passengers and five crew on board.
On Monday, MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law said it had been instructed to file a lawsuit by a person seeking damages for physical and psychological trauma.
The firm says it has also been consulted by a number of other passengers and that their class action will likely be against Air Canada, Halifax International Airport Authority and Nav Canada, the organization that operates Canada's civil airspace.
MacGillivray says it believes Air Canada has already contacted some passengers to offer a compensation package.
Meanwhile, lawyer Ray Wagner of Wagners Serious Injury Law Firm confirmed Monday evening that he is also meeting with a passenger from the flight on Tuesday and he has been in contact with a second passenger.
Wagner is working with two Toronto law firms that have experience with lawsuits dealing with airline crashes.
