Lead Counsel in Nationwide Aviation Wrongful Death Action Involving 50 Deaths
Hodgson Russ was appointed by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York to be lead counsel in an aviation wrongful death action involving the death of 50 people. The firm also represented seven of the victims' families. Cases were started all over the country, but were consolidated in a multidistrict litigation proceeding in Western New York, where Hugh M. Russ, III, the lead attorney for the Hodgson Russ team, has his primary office. The case has resulted in seven-figure settlements for each of the seven families we represented.
