A carbon monoxide leak in a Missouri airplane hangar led to the death of a 29-year-old worker, survived by his wife and three minor children. The incident prompted legal action that eventually led to a $7,500,000 global settlement. The initial settlement amounted to $3,750,000, including a $2,000,000 policy limit from the hangar owner’s personal coverage. Additional defendants like the HVAC company also contributed. Before approval of these initial settlements, Plaintiffs pursued extra coverage via an Airport Owners & Operators Liability Policy, but the municipality denied liability. Arbitration awarded $12,000,000 against the hangar owner. A subsequent lawsuit targeted the insurer and the municipality, both of whom disputed their roles and responsibilities. Mediation led to an additional settlement of $3,750,000 from the insurer and the municipality, culminating in the $7.5 million global settlement approved by a circuit court.
