It’s an emergency that you can’t escape.
If you’re an attorney who has been in the firing line since the launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, you may have been the first one on the line.
But you won’t be the last.
The next launch, the Dragon, is coming this weekend, and if you have a rocket company and a lawyer on your team, you are at risk of being sued for wrongful death or negligent injury.
The risk can be huge.
According to a 2015 report by the American Bar Association, there were more than 6,300 wrongful death lawsuits filed against SpaceX lawyers in 2015.
And it’s still going strong, according to SpaceX.

(AP)SpaceX attorney Michael O’Neill said that in addition to the legal risks of working in a rocket launch environment, his team was constantly in the middle of a legal fight with SpaceX.
“It was like, this is what we’re doing now?
This is the law?” he said.
“It was almost like, what are we even talking about here?”
The company also faced scrutiny from the FAA, which ordered the company to cease all operations on the coast of Florida in 2016.
The FAA then imposed a nationwide ban on commercial launches until a review of the company’s policies could be completed.
And that review was completed last year, with a decision to continue the ban.
But there is no such ban on private launches.
According the FAA website, “In order to conduct a launch or launch event, an entity must have a permit from the Federal Aviation Administration, a Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) or an independent contractor.”
It doesn’t matter if the launch is from a commercial space launch site, from a spaceport, or from a private facility, the FAA will review the event and take action.
If you’re a rocket engineer or lawyer, the odds of getting fired are high.
There are only three major ways to go from a launch to a lawsuit, according the FAA.
The first option is a lawsuit filed by the injured party, the other two options are a company to pay out damages, or a private party.
The FAA did not provide an exact number of cases filed against rocket engineers and lawyers but said in a 2016 statement that the agency has “reviewed more than 100 cases filed in the last decade.”
The third option is to seek compensation for the harm that you have caused to your clients.
“The vast majority of these cases are resolved out of court, with no court costs involved,” the FAA said.
According a report from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, “in the majority of cases, the injuries sustained were minor.”
But the injury is still a factor, said Chris Furlong, a lawyer who has represented several rocket engineers.
If your client is seriously injured, you can expect a lot of lawyers who are in the business of rocket launches.
If that’s not an option, you’re best off seeking out a lawyer to represent you, he said.
“You’re going to be sued if you’re injured in the launch process, so you need to get a lawyer,” Furlink said.
In many cases, a rocket has to be modified and repaired before a lawsuit can be filed.
In this case, the modifications would be done before the launch, but SpaceX had to pay for it.
In a statement, the company said that, “The SpaceX team of attorneys and engineers worked tirelessly to ensure that all of our launches were safe and successful.”
The FAA also said that it would not be making an announcement on the matter.
But the FAA is already working on its own review of rocket safety.
Last year, it announced the creation of a task force to review rocket safety, which will include SpaceX as a member.
The task force is expected to issue its findings by June.
“As we continue our review, we will continue to work closely with the FAA to identify areas where the agency may be able to improve its policies, practices and practices,” SpaceX said in the statement.
But Furlunk said that he doesn’t think the FAA should change its policies or practices on rocket launches, and he’s not sure if the FAA’s review is even needed.
“There are some changes that need to be made in the laws to address rocket launches,” he said, adding that he’s worried about the way that SpaceX’s lawyers are being treated.
