Following an airplane crash near Bayfield, Colorado, Schaden, Katzman, Lampert & McClune aviation lawyers represented the plaintiffs and filed wrongful death actions for the loss of their family members. The Tenth Circuit ruled that pursuant to the plain language of an Old Republic aviation insurance policy, the non-passenger survivors were not limited by the $100,000 per person limitation, but rather the $1 million per occurrence applied. The court also ruled that under a separate policy provision, Old Republic’s duty of indemnification was $1 million. See Old Republic v. Durango Air Service, 283 F.3d 1222 (10th Cir. 2002).
