This two-day program centers around a fictional case study featuring discussions lead by legal and insurance experts. Together, we will explore considerations and complexities of the case from accident investigation, legal discovery, multi-party litigation, and conclude with a live claim resolution exercise.
At 15:30, on June 21, 2018, a USAF operated R-75 (a militarized version of a Pilatus PC-12) takes off from Martin State Airport, MD, carrying sensitive, classified materials. The pilot, a contractor for the DOD, travels along an IFR route towards Cape May, NJ. At the border of Maryland and Delaware, the R-75 collides with a civilian GA aircraft. The R-75 sustains damage to its landing gear and belly while the GA is totaled. The R-75 contacts the nearest airport, Wilmington Airport, and declares emergency.
Upon touching down on runway 01 at Wilmington, the landing gear collapses and the R-75 skids down the runway coming to a stop. ATC grounds all flights, leaving regional jet Bestgate flight 913, previously preparing for takeoff, stranded on the tarmac. After several hours, fights broke out between passengers and airline personnel on board flight 913, causing physical damage to passengers, crew, and the interior of the aircraft. Approximately four hours later, Bestgate flight 913 is allowed to return to the gate.
