Establishing Liability and Damages in Private Plane Crash Litigation
Our lawyers at Kreindler & Kreindler LLP know that the safety of corporate, charter or private airplane operations can vary significantly from one operation to another. Some charter companies have outstanding safety records, while other private aircraft operations leave a great deal to be desired.
Contact us if you need Kreindler's advice about your legal options in the aftermath of a private aviation accident. With offices in New York, Boston and Los Angeles, we represent clients nationwide in charter plane or corporate jet accident litigation. Our long experience with the practical demands of aviation accident investigation represents an important advantage for personal injury or wrongful death clients.
Effective Investigation in Charter or Corporate Aviation Accident Cases
In a major commercial airline disaster, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will assume responsibility for a thorough investigation of the causes of the accident. Kreindler's experts can monitor and review the progress of the official NTSB investigation.
In charter or corporate aircraft accidents, however, the official investigation will often be limited in its scope, and our law firm conducts a parallel investigation that can determine causes that were overlooked in the official investigation. This helps Kreindler attorneys identify the relationship between multiple causes and the apportionment of liability between an operator, a contract pilot, a manufacturer, a maintenance contractor or anyone else whose negligence played a role in the accident.
Many of Kreindler's attorneys have practical aviation industry experience. We're licensed pilots, both airplanes and helicopters, industrial engineers and aviation safety professionals. While our trial experience helps us with the evaluation of claims and the proof of facts on disputed issues in aviation litigation, our practical and technical experience helps immeasurably with our ability to investigate crash sites, aircraft maintenance records and "black box" pilot and aircraft performance data.
