Halifax law firm Wagners and the British Columbia-based Camp, Fiorante, Matthews and Mogerman filed the lawsuit Tuesday in the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.

The statement of claim says lead plaintiffs Kathleen Carroll-Bryne, Asher Hodara and Malanga Georges Liboy are seeking damages for pain and suffering, loss of past and future income and past and future costs of care, among other things.

The suit names Air Canada, Airbus SAS, NAV Canada, the Halifax International Airport Authority, the Attorney General of Canada and an unnamed captain and first officer for the crash on March 29.

Air Canada, the Halifax International Airport Authority and Nav Canada all said they could not comment as the matter is before the courts.

The Attorney General of Canada and the France-based Airbus did not immediately return a request for comment.
