|Quoting The Miami Herald:|
A series of lawsuits were filed Friday in federal court in Miami seeking millions of dollars in damages for alleged negligence stemming from an aircraft collision that led to Brazil's worst air disaster.
The 16 lawsuits, filed on behalf of family members of some of the 154 people who died, contend that several problems combined to cause a collision between an Embraer Legacy 600 business jet and a Gol airlines Boeing 737, which went down in the Amazon rain forest Sept. 29.
''I think we're going to find out, like in all of these tragedies, that it wasn't a single mistake It was a series of mistakes,'' said Steven C. Marks, lawyer for the families filing the lawsuits.
A precise damages dollar figure is not mentioned in the court filings, but Marks said it would be in the millions of dollars.
