Aviation Accidents Are Rare & Devastating

1914 saw the first commercial airplane flight. Since then, we have had over 100 years to perfect this form of travel. The result of a century’s worth of advancements has made it both a fast and safe way to travel, with aviation fatalities decreasing almost every year. Still, accidents involving airplanes and helicopters happen, and while this may be the safest way to travel, their crashes are among the most catastrophic.

  • Evaluating your case and offering legal options
  • Determining who is at fault for the accident
  • Finding third parties that may also be liable for the accident
  • Helping you fight for the financial support you need
  • Building a strong case to ensure the highest compensation

Standing Up for Victims of Airplane & Helicopter Crashes

Many of these cases end in a settlement outside of court, but our team prepares each case as if it will go to trial. This attention to building an airtight case makes us prepared for any level of rigorous litigation. This process starts with a thorough investigation performed by experts.

The first parties we investigate for liability include:

  • Pilots
    There may have been a safety measure that the pilot neglected or a blatant mistake made by the pilot that caused the accident.
  • Mechanics
    The crash may have occurred due to a mechanic’s failure to properly inspect or repair parts of the plane or helicopter’s equipment.
  • Air traffic controllers
    It’s possible that an air traffic controller failed to follow FAA regulation or forced planes to cross flight paths.
  • Manufacturers
    We will trace the equipment back to its manufacturers to see if they at fault in approving dysfunctional mechanisms for flight.
