Airline Accident Damages Claims Against Regional Carriers
Takeoff and landing are generally recognized as the most dangerous stages of any flight. It therefore stands to reason that regional airlines flying shorter trips account for more than their share of accidents based on number of flights rather than miles flown. At Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, our familiarity with the challenges of personal injury and wrongful death litigation related to smaller regional airlines can help victims and surviving families recover the compensation they need.
Kreindler attorneys played important roles in the last two major regional airline accidents, the Comair Flight 3272 and the Continental Connection (Colgan) Flight 3407 disasters.

Most major airlines find it economical to fly longer routes themselves and outsource shorter routes to smaller regional carriers. Today, just about half of all commercial flights were operated by regional airlines with a lower cost structure, less experienced pilots and continuing temptations to cut corners in safety, maintenance and inspections.
Kreindler's ability to work effectively with investigators and forensic experts from many professions allows our attorneys to develop sound theories of causation under virtually any accident scenario. This capacity enables us to place liability where it belongs in a regional airline accident: the carrier, a maintenance contractor, the manufacturer or a component supplier. Our law firm's ability to provide individualized client service for people with claims related to the same accident also allows us to protect the value of a given claim by spreading litigation expenses among any number of case files, which results in greater recoveries for our clients.
