Experienced Trial Counsel for Private Airplane Accident Claims
Experienced aircraft accident lawyers understand that some of the most challenging litigation problems come up in cases involving small plane crashes. Federal legislation such as the General Aviation Revitalization Act immunizes aircraft manufacturers from products liability claims related to planes more than 18 years old — and most planes in service are older than that.
Insurance coverage can be a problem as well. In many cases, the pilot carried more liability insurance on his or her own car than he or she did on the airplane or helicopter that crashed. In fact, general aviation pilots might carry no liability insurance at all. Similarly aircraft mechanics may also carry little or no insurance.To learn how you can pursue and recover damages for injuries or fatalities in a small plane crash despite these obstacles, contact an experienced attorney at Kreindler & Kreindler LLP.
Putting More Than 50 Years of Experience to Work for Our Clients
With aircraft accident litigation experience dating back to the early 1950s, Kreindler's private library, case files and technical databases by themselves represent a litigation resource that can't be matched. The keys to success in a future case might well be found in our own records of litigation involving flight schools, local airports, aircraft maintenance companies, aftermarket component suppliers or others whose negligence may have played a role in a recent accident.
Kreindler's goal in accidents involving small planes or private aircraft is to recover the maximum amount possible from any defendant who can be held to account in a given case. Many accidents have multiple causes, and our practical ability to place legal responsibility among at-fault defendants can significantly improve our client's chances of full financial compensation.
The investigation and presentation of liability and damages claims in airplane accident cases can be expensive, generally running into six figures. Our record of success in plane crash cases allows the firm to advance these costs at our own risk. We only recover these expenses if we win the case.
