Injured in an Aviation Accident?
As much as people hate to admit it, air travel has its risks. Mechanical failure, pilot error, air traffic control error all can result in serious injuries and fatalities, and in most instances the victims have no control over the situation. We have successfully tried cases against both commercial airlines and charter airlines. We have successfully litigated against commercial airlines, private pilots, and various aircraft manufacturers, as well as airport authorities.
In 2012 alone there were 1,537 U.S. civil aviation accidents, according to a summary created by the National Transportation Safety Board. If you have been injured or a loved one has lost a life in an aviation accident, you should contact us to investigate your rights.
