Airplane and Helicopter Crash
We handle various different types of aviation cases including FAA enforcement actions, civil litigation, property damage, modifications and alterations, etc.
Because these cases can occur out of the State of Arizona, or cross State lines, we are able to work with other attorneys licensed in those States.
After an aircraft crash, there are many questions to be answered. Family members who have lost loved ones are often left wondering what happened. Whether an airplane crash involves a small private plane or a helicopter, the difficulty of determining the cause is often complicated by the loss of witnesses and evidence in the disaster itself.
However, clues are always left behind. Experts in metallurgy, maintenance, repair, engine and airframe structures and avionics personnel can re-create the failures that lead to a crash.
Approximately 30% of all aircraft crashes are caused at least in part by the negligence of maintenance or ground personnel.
It helps to have an attorney who understands mechanical failures and how to find them.
