Airline Crashes

There is only a limited group of trial lawyers who understand the complex set of laws governing aircraft operations and facilities in the event of crashes that cause injury or death, and our firm’s grasp of these issues is well recognized. We understand aviation accident investigation procedures, and effectively use research, expert testimony and trial skill to demonstrate product defect, pilot error, faulty operating procedures or a combination of these causes.  For example, our knowledge of pilot fatigue issues (typified by National Sleep Foundation findings that one in five pilots (20%) admit that they have made a serious error due to sleepiness, and well over one-third of pilots report that their current work schedule does not allow adequate time for sleep) is often crucial in determining air crash liability.  As a result, we have consistently and  successfully represented victims and surviving family members who have suffered personal loss due to commercial or private airplane crashes.
