We blogged about the first but not the last personal injury lawsuit filed against Southwest Airlines and now nine more have been filed against the Texas-based airline following the fatal engine explosion on Flight 1380 twenty minutes after taking off from La Guardia Airport in New York. While letters of apology and $6,000 in checks and travel vouchers were issued to all passengers on this flight, the nine plaintiffs in the Manhattan-based personal injury airplane lawsuit are seeking much more.

Best personal injury settlement calculator. You are trying to figure out how much your Los Angeles personal injury or wrongful death case is worth. Maybe you really have no idea and you are curious. Maybe a lawyer told you a number you are not happy with and you want to double check. Or maybe you received a settlement offer from insurance and you are trying to compare. Whatever the reason, be careful! When you are just entering the information you know, guessing on what you don't and missing a lot of important pieces, these calculators simply are not accurate.
