Air Canada Case

We are counsel in a class action suit brought on behalf of passengers of Air Canada Flight 624, and we represent those who endured both physical and psychological injuries due to the negligence of the defendants.

Class Action Court Name:

S. Philip Cameron vs. Air Canada et al.

Court:

Supreme Court of Nova Scotia

Class Members:

All persons who were passengers of Air Canada Flight 624 from Pearson Internation Airport in Toronto to Halifax International Airport in Halifax on March 28, 2015.

We are counsel in a class action brought on behalf of passengers of Air Canada Flight 624 from Pearson International Airport in Toronto to Halifax International Airport.  The Defendants include Air Canada, Nav Canada, the Halifax International Airport Authority, the flight's Captain, and the First Officer.  This class action lawsuit alleges that the negligence of these defendants caused the crash landing of this flight, resulting in both physical and psychological injuries to passengers.

Through this claim and the TSB investigation our clients hope to be able to access information about what problems contributed to the crash.  Our clients believe based on the known facts that there was likely negligence on the part of the Defendants.

MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law is also filing a mass tort claim where all of our clients are named individually.  The firm currently has been retained by more than twenty passengers who will be included in the mass tort claim.  The passengers are filing as individuals in the mass tort in case the class is not certified, as was the case in the Sydney tar ponds litigation in Nova Scotia.  We hope to protect our clients regardless of whether the class action is cerified.  The mass tort claim will provide an alternative if the class action is unsustainable or too cumbersome.

We believe that claims like these help change the behaviour of profit motivated corporations - keeping them accountable to people they hurt and encouraging higher safety standards.

For further information concerning this action, please contact Jamie MacGillivray at 1-888-434-0398 or jmg@www.nslegal.com.

Injuries & Conditions

Hearing Your Questions. Finding You Answers.

Everyday people do not plan to live life with a catastrophic injury. When a devastating event occurs, and your life is forever changed, you deserve to have the right information about your entitlement to medical and financial support. MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law can give you the guidance and legal advocacy you need, from our offices in Nova Scotia serving clients throughout Atlantic Canada. When you need us, we are here.

Legal Advocacy For Injured People

Often, when people suffer from traumatic physical injury, they experience a range of symptoms. The effects of one injury can be compounded by another, and the injured person may have to consult with a number of medical professionals to receive the right diagnosis and guidance on the way to getting better.

The people we help are facing life in the wake of conditions that include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Orthopaedic injuries
  • Amputation and disfigurement
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries and whiplash
  • Chronic pain disorder
  • Loss of vision or hearing

Each one of our clients has unique needs and unique challenges on the road to recovery. What starts as a soft tissue injury can progress into a debilitating case of chronic pain, which can have a severe impact on the ability to work and engage fully in everyday life. As lawyers, our role is to be your advocates. We work for you and do not receive money from you until we have secured compensation on your behalf.
