A mass disaster can result from a collision, fire, explosion, storms, or any other accident that causes injury, loss of property, or loss of life to a substantial number of people. Airline crashes and hotel or building fires are common examples of mass disasters, but they are far from the only types. People’s lives change dramatically after such an event, whether an injured survivor or family members of someone wounded or killed.
Being a victim of a mass disaster is devastating, as the loss of a limb or the senses of sight or hearing can have a profound effect on the way a person or his or her family live. Often, such disasters could have been prevented, and injury could have been avoided. Unfortunately, many of the institutions designed to protect people in these circumstances, like insurance companies, will aggressively try to avoid paying valid claims. This is why it is important to prepare for a disaster by consulting with an attorney to review your insurance policies.
