A Nova Scotia law firm says it will be filing a class action lawsuit representing passengers on board Air Canada Flight 624 that crash-landed Sunday morning in Halifax.

MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law says it was instructed to file a lawsuit by an individual who is seeking damages for physical and psychological trauma. The firm says it has also been consulted by a number of other passengers on the flight.

The law firm says the class action will likely be against Air Canada, Halifax International Airport Authority and Nav Canada.

MacGillivray Law says it believes Air Canada has already contacted some passengers with a compensation package, with more details expected about it later this week.
