Mass disaster lawyers can help those who have suffered a devastating loss from a mass disaster get legal recovery for moving forward.
Mass disasters are shocking, unexpected events that cause widespread destruction and injuries. They can occur anywhere, and result from a variety of causes. Terrorism, fires, aviation accidents, train and subway derailments, bus accidents and explosions are among the many disasters that can affect large groups of people who share in the same experience of traumatic loss. We have all seen their faces in the media. Those who lost loved ones during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Those who have endured days and weeks wondering what could have happened to their loved ones following the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Victims of the gas explosion in East Harlem, and passengers on the Metro North train derailment, as well as countless others forced to brave dealing with the aftermath of such catastrophic events.
If you’ve come to this page you may have recently faced a devastating loss caused by a mass disaster. You may be experiencing grief and emotional distress that feels unbearable and want support from someone who understands your pain. Your grief may be compounded by a legal challenge you are facing in ensuring that those responsible for damages you’ve incurred from your loss are held accountable. You’ve come to the right place.
Communications with agencies charged with investigating mass disasters, insurance company representatives, or persons representing companies involved in such events can leave family members of victims with the impression that they will act in their best interest. However, each acts in the best interest of the person or company that they represent. A mass tort attorney will; however, advocate for you in fighting related legal battles while you focus on healing from your pain.
