Our Approach to Aviation Accident Litigation

Aviation product liability and negligence lawsuits are complex, costly, and time-consuming.

Anyone hiring a law firm to handle an aircraft crash case should get reliable answers to the following questions:

  • Is the lawyer capable of trying an aviation case to a jury?
  • Does the lawyer understand all of the unique complex legal issues?
  • Does the lawyer have the financial and staffing resources to properly prepare the case?

An aircraft that crashes in Texas may have been piloted by someone from Oklahoma, the aircraft may have been manufactured in Kansas, equipped with an engine manufactured in Pennsylvania, which runs on its fuel delivery system that was manufactured in Washington. That same aircraft may have been maintained in Florida. Cases like this typically raise complex legal issues. We understand these issues and routinely handle multi-state cases, like the foregoing.

Aviation cases are expert-witness driven. We work with expert witnesses who are nationally renowned in their fields. We have extensive experience asserting and, where necessary, defending the integrity of the experts’ accident reconstructions that we present in court. Because of our knowledge in this area, leading experts are willing to associate with our firm.
