Small plane crashes: three dead, cause unknown

A twin-engine jet crashed in the woods of northern Mississippi, killing all three people who were onboard: the pilot, his wife and the co-pilot. Police in Union County identified the deceased as residents of Belmont and Booneville, respectively.

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration explained that the aircraft, a Rockwell Sabreliner 65, departed University Oxford Airport in Mississippi at around 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, and was bound for Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport in Alabama. Around 5 p.m. that same day, the FAA received a call saying that the plane was missing from the radar.

It was around 9:30 p.m. that officials discovered the aircraft, which had crashed in the area between New Albany and Blue Springs. Severe storms had been reported on Saturday, but investigators are still unclear as to whether the storms were a factor in the crash. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are currently looking into the case and trying to determine the exact time of the crash.

There can be any number of factors in airplane crashes, and if negligence on the part of the pilot or the maker of the aircraft is one of causes, victims may be able to file a personal injury claim. They might be reimbursed for economic and non-economic losses like property damage, medical bills and pain and suffering.

If the crash is fatal, a family member could sue for loss of support, funeral and burial costs, pre-death medical bills and emotional suffering, among other damages. To show how the other party was negligent may require the assistance of a legal firm. A lawyer may be beneficial for the process of negotiating a settlement or litigating.
