NTSB Complaint - Insurance and the government

Review by goof on 2010-06-08
There is no regulations as to private pilots required to have insurance on there plane. My husband was killed while he was a passenger on friend of a friends plane due to pilot negligence the plane crashed and there no recourse of action that I have to sue these people. Why is no requirement for the pilots that want to pilot there own plane and have no insurance. I am devastated that I can not get anything from them. This is a travesty. The government has us insure everything why not this. If you can pay for a private plane then you can insure it. I also had AFLAC insurance however it does not cover private plane accidents you have to had paid for this in order to file a claim.

Thank you however I did retain an atty but the laws in florida protect creditors and or lawsuits when you have a trustwhich they do.

So now what am I supposed to I have lost my husband and son and my husbands business and income. These people get away with it.

I am very sorry for the loss of your husband and your son.

My advice to you is to retain an attorney and see if you have any legal recourse against the pilot of the plane or (If the pilot also died in the accident) his estate.

You definitely need an attorney, to work out everything from whether there is, in fact, culpable negligence to whether there was a mechanical failure with the plane (which puts the manufacturer on the hook potentially), to finding out if there are collectable damages. Sorry to hear of your loss. Best of luck.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Was there proof that the pilot was negligent?
