Help for Victims of the Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight
As the search continues for wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, families of the victims and aviation experts are also searching for answers as to what could have caused such a disaster.
Unfortunately, the plane’s disappearance from radar without any distress signals suggests a catastrophic failure, according to Steve Marks, a partner at Podhurst Orseck, who has represented victims of similar international airline disasters, including the SilkAir crash in Asia in December 1997 and the Air France crash in the Atlantic in June 2009.
“Some of my clients, who I’ve already contacted, are reliving this,” Marks was quoted in a recent USA article about the Malaysia Airlines flight and possible causes. “They sat in the airport. No information was coming out for days.”
During such a horrific time, the thoughts and prayers of everyone at Podhurst Orseck go out to the families and passengers of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight — as well as to the victims of other airline crashes. Our firm — which has represented victims from of over 100 crashes, including some of the most industry-changing cases in the aviation world — has been shaped by such tragedies and our commitment to improving safety, standards and training within the aviation industry.
