Family of Skydiver Settles Wrongful Death Claim

Family of Skydiver Settles Wrongful Death Claim

The family of a man who died after he was paralyzed when a skydiving plane crashed settled a wrongful death case a few days before trial was to begin for more than $3 million.

Steven Parrella was a cameraman aboard the plane to record other skydivers, explained his family's attorney, Morry Cole, of Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis.

The plane crashed near Sullivan, about 70 miles southwest of St. Louis, after it experienced engine failure. Six of the eight people aboard died in the crash.

This is one example where someone’s negligence has left a family in ruin. Tragic as it may be, family members are often left with no choice but to file a wrongful death suit when someone they love is tragically taken from them.
