Nothing, according to Mr. Joe Hart, a passenger on the US Airways flight that miraculously landed in the Hudson River on Jan. 15 without loss of life. His life was saved, but he doesn't feel he owes anybody anything for that. Instead, he's considering suing
US Air for his bloody nose, his bruises and for"feeling tense" on the SIX flights he's been alive to take since the accidents.
In addition to recovering losses, Hart says he's concerned about having trouble flying. He's flown on six planes since the accident, and each flight has gotten "progressively more difficult."
He says he was tense, sweated and "felt every bit of turbulence" on a Los Angeles-to-Philadelphia flight last week, though it wasn't that turbulent a flight.
Hart says he has talked to a lawyer in North Carolina but hasn't decided whether to take any legal action.
"I want to see how things play out with US Airways," he says. "I'm hopeful US Airways understands the significance of the incident."
Kreindler & Kreindler, a New York law firm that has represented plaintiffs in crashes, says it has been contacted by several passengers on the US Airways flight.
As Horace Greeley said, "The darkest day of any man's life is when he sits down to plan how to get money without earning it. "
