Airline Mechanic Dies on Job

Posted By Personal Injury Attorney || 23-Aug-2010

A Delta Airlines mechanic was killed when the landing gear doors in the wheel well area of an Airbus A319 that was to depart to St. Louis at 7 AM somehow malfunctioned or activated and killed him.

The mechanic, 47 year old Jesse Paul Stygar of Rosemount, MN, was found inside the landing gear doors and had no pulse.  Reports say Stygar died of a head injury. The airline - as well as local officials - are investigating, and the Airbus A319 has been taken out of service pending investigation.

Reports say Stygar worked for Delta for five years as a line mechanic and had also served in the military. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), NTSB, FAA and airport police along with the medical examiner's office will also be investigating.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
