“It needs to be confirmed by the investigators, but it’s a possible good first step in solving what has been one of the biggest aviation mysteries in history,” he said.
Joseph Wheeler, special counsel at Maurice Blackburn Lawyers in the Australian city of Melbourne, also said he had started fresh talks with more families in Malaysia since Wednesday’s discovery.
“It’s triggering renewed monitoring and recommendations to families,” Wheeler told Reuters.
“If there is evidence that the aircraft has failed, that very well may trigger a wave of lawsuits from around the world, predominantly Malaysia and China,” he said.
Zhang Qihuai, a lawyer representing the family members in China, told Reuters more than 30 family members had discussed filing lawsuits in China, Malaysia or the United States.
It will be a tough road for the families and their lawyers. Good luck to them.
