Aviation Accident Lawyers

Advocating for People & Families of Those Harmed by Serious Aircraft Accidents

Each day across the nation, people use airplanes and helicopters to travel. All too often, these same people suffer serious or life-threatening injuries. What they do after that will shape the rest of their lives. People nationwide have called Arnold & Itkin after an aviation accident because we’ve obtained more than $10 billion for clients who were injured in serious accidents. We fight for the best results to help people recover the costs of medical care, lost income, physical therapy, and other fundamental needs.

Our firm represents people who were injured in:

  • Airport accidents
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Offshore helicopter accidents
  • Private plane accidents
  • Oil rig transport accidents

We pour everything we have into our cases because your opponent is doing the same thing. Even when we were outspent or outnumbered, we’ve beaten the world’s largest airlines and companies. Our secret? We don’t stop fighting until our clients have gotten what they need. No matter what.

No Matter How Tough
the Fight.

An airplane or helicopter crash is every passenger’s worst nightmare. When airline negligence puts people through the worst trauma of their lives, we’re there to help them rebuild. Our law firm wants our clients to have everything they need to move forward with their lives. That begins with forcing aviation companies to take responsibility for plane or helicopter accidents. We won’t be intimidated by the complexity of an aviation crash investigation. We welcome the challenge. After $10 billion in recoveries, we’ll do whatever it takes to get our clients back on their feet. No matter what.

“They told me they were pretty much going to handle everything, I wasn’t going to have to worry about anything—which they held up to that.”
Tinisha Thomas El Faro Widow

No Matter How Big They Are.

The insurers for airlines and helicopter companies are the most well-funded and well-defended companies in the industry. They’re going to try to outnumber you, pressure you into a low settlement, or delay your case. It won’t matter because we won’t back down. As your lawyers, it’s our job to level the playing field and give you a fighting chance. That’s how we’ve won some of the toughest aviation accident cases in history.

No Matter How Big the
Challenge.

  • Kurt Arnold
    "Always bet on justice. It takes a lot of time and resources to win a case against big defendants, and some cases are easier to win than others. But this doesn’t matter at Arnold & Itkin. We take the cases that we must win because it’s the right thing, the ones we have to win—even if it’s hard. Especially if it’s hard."

We may be outnumbered,
but we’re never outworked.

Airplane and helicopter accidents are the most complex events to investigate and litigate. Our clients are facing months of investigation, followed by months of depositions and hard-fought litigation. It’s going to take late nights and tough work to win your case. While most law firms balk at that kind of challenge, our firm lives for it. Our commitment ensures our clients get what they need. No matter what.

No Matter How Big the
News Story.

Aviation accidents often come with the additional pressure of news coverage. At Arnold & Itkin, our law firm is no stranger to that kind of scrutiny and attention. We represented a third of the crew of the Deepwater Horizon, the widows of the sinking of the El Faro, the survivors of the BP Texas City refinery explosion, and other headline-grabbing cases. We know what it’s like to have the eyes of the nation on you. It doesn’t take our focus from what really matters: getting our clients what they need. No matter what.
