Aviation Accident Litigation

Aviation accident litigation requires broad knowledge of regulations and laws, both international and domestic. Many aviation accidents are comprised of a vast array of issues that require expertise, investigation, and deep technical knowledge.

Attorneys must be well acquainted with aviation law and have a deep knowledge of the technical issues surrounding aerodynamics, piloting, engineering, aircraft maintenance, airline operations, weather, and air traffic control systems.

Additionally, general aviation accidents frequently occur during interstate flights, may involve pilots and passengers that live in different states, and often involve manufactures and maintenance facilities that are located in different states. These factors can raise complicated choice of law and jurisdictional issues that must be analyzed in the earliest stages of the case. Moreover, if an aircraft or component part is more than eighteen years old, the case may be precluded outright by the General Aviation Revitalization Act of 1994.

JHLAW has successfully handled dozens of general aviation crashes and has the legal knowledge and practical experience required to obtain favorable results for our clients.
