US Airways paid $5,000 to each passenger aboard Flight 1549 for the baggage that the NTSB needs to keep for its investigation into the crash—but not everyone is satisfied with that payout, reports USA Today. Some say their belongings were worth more than $5,000, while others want restitution for injuries.
One passenger, who came out of the incident with bumps and bruises, says he "would like to be made whole for the incident." Others have approached lawyers over their emotional trauma and newfound fear of flying. But to claim damages in court, passengers would need to prove that the airline is somehow at fault for the crash through negligence or maintenance problems.
