Review:

Dispute Resolution provides a detailed analysis of the legal and economic issues faced by plaintiffs and defendants in major aviation accidents.  The report addresses claims, settlements, lawsuits and compensation differences and the reasons why cases settle early or not.  Variable characteristics of decedents, plaintiffs, defendants, accidents and legal environments are used to determine the probabilities of filing suit, going to trial and the duration of each case.  The authors discuss how air crash litigation differs from other tort situations, correlate case outcomes with economic losses while explaining the theory behind empirical models and their operations.

Dispute Resolution is one of six volumes studying aviation accident litigation available at RAND.  Other related reports include:
