Airplane Accidents

Airplane Accidents

While generally airplane travel is considered a safe transportation option, airplane travel is by no means risk free. In reality aviation travel can lead to a variety of different airplane accidents. The National Transportation Safety Board recently reported that in just one year there were 1,837 airplane accidents involving both small and large airplanes. And of those accidents, 345, or almost 20 percent, were fatalities.

Airplane accidents can be caused by a range of causes, including human error to defective parts or components of the aircraft itself. In order to diminish the risk of airplane accidents, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has set clear safety guidelines for pilots, aircraft manufacturers, and flight operations. However, following an airplane accident, whether the FAA standards were enforced strictly enough to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers will always be an issue to be investigated.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an airplane accident, you need attorneys who have experience handling these complex airplane and aviation matters. This requires not only legal knowledge and expertise, but also knowledge of the technical aspects of aerodynamics, airplane equipment, flight patterns, and of FAA regulations.

Client Reviews
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver.

“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
★★★★★
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
