"Ambulances will be chasing us"
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Beginning next month, the law firm of Chasen, DeCash & Moore will begin to move junior partners into offices located in major airports across the U.S.
Speaking from the company's headquarters here, John Jerriton, Corporate Communications Director said, "With a trend of more and more litigation involving air travel issues, we see no limit to the upside potential for business from the aviation sector. From in-flight coffee spills to lost luggage to over-bookings to fatal airplane crashes, we view this practice area as having the potential of explosive growth. And being the largest player in the field of transportation litigation, Chasen, DeCash & Moore views the expansion of our legal services into airports — where the potential clients are — as a natural."
"What's more," said Jerriton, "there are vast opportunities for participating in class action suits. Already we have added dozens of associates just to handle the upcoming proceedings regarding the misappropriation of frequent flyer miles by four of the ten largest U.S. flagged carriers."
According to a statement released today by the company, providing offices right on airport property will not only help to recruit clients, it will also make it easier for families of accident victims to file claims while rescue efforts are still underway.
Jerriton added, "We are even getting specially equipped vehicles which will be dispatched to the scene of a crash along with fire and rescue trucks. We believe that it is important to be there when survivors are pulled from the wreckage and want to immediately exercise their legal rights."
Company literature shows a vehicle (see photo above) staffed with company associates dressed in work clothes similar to rescue personnel "to make potential clients feel more comfortable and secure." "In fact," said Jerriton, "we expect that three times out of four, our legal teams will be able to reach the scene of an airport accident before ambulances arrive. Ambulances will be chasing us for a change.”
