BEAUFORT —The families of five passengers killed in a plane crash just off the Outer Banks have settled their wrongful death lawsuits for $15 million dollars.
The plane crashed on Feb. 13, 2022 near Drum Inlet on the way back from a hunting trip. The settlement was reached on behalf of the families of deceased passengers Noah Lee Styron, 15; Michael Daily Shepherd, 15; Jacob Nolan Taylor, 16; Jonathan Kole McInnis, 15; and Stephanie Fulcher, 42, mother of McInnis.
“The families filed these lawsuits to get answers and hold accountable the companies and individuals whose negligence led to this tragedy,” said Andrew C. Robb of Robb & Robb LLC, aviation lawyer for the families.
Robb is an aviation attorney who also represented Vanessa Bryant in her wrongful death lawsuit for the helicopter crash that killed her husband and basketball star Kobe Bryant.
