CONFIDENTIAL MULTIMILLION DOLLAR RECOVERY FOR KENYAN AIR CRASH
Four Pennsylvanians on a trip to Kenya, Africa, died when the aircraft they were traveling in failed to climb over a mountain range and crashed, killing all on board. To secure a needed financial recovery for the families, jurisdiction over the foreign travel companies needed to be established in the United States. When American law did not appear to provide a remedy for the families, the applicable Kenyan law was researched in the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. which supported bringing the cases in America. Once U.S. jurisdiction was established, one of our attorneys set about proving our clients’ case in a Philadelphia courtroom under the principles of Kenyan law. A confidential multi-million dollar settlement was then reached.
