A frequent topic of discussion in our industry is whether accident fatalities and injured survivors should receive different considerations in terms of family assistance insurance coverages. The question is often asked: “Can a defensible case be made that family assistance insurance policy endorsements (and related coverages) should apply only to fatality situations?”
A related topic is whether there is evidence of an existing relationship (or if one is even meant to exist) between aviation ERPs, specifically family assistance support, and the resultant ability to influence the magnitude of downstream litigation and financial loss. Here the question is: “Does the provision of family assistance have any influence on litigation in terms of likelihood or fiscal magnitude?”
This insightful white paper examines these important topics and shares some well-reasoned conclusions as contributions to the ongoing discussion.
