Legal question on Korean Airline crash.
I was listening to NPR while driving to work, and heard that the Korean Air pilots who flew the 777 that crashed at S.F. airport were not tested for drugs or alcohol immediately after the crash landing. The reason given: Korean airlines simply do not require it of their pilots. I found this little nugget of information astonishing.
Another issue I wonder about is what legal options do people who were injured have, as Korean Air is a foreign company (Public Subsidiary of The Hanjin Group)? Do Americans or foreign national other than Koreans have the ability to sue for compensation, and actually collect for injuries/damages/losses/etc.? Just curious .. Av? Steve?
Re: Legal question on Korean Airline crash.
Generally speaking, when a foreign company conducts business in the United States, it subjects itself to potential liablity under U.S. law. They are required to register with the state's division of corporations, and to have a registered agent within the state who can be served with process.
