If you or a loved one has been involved in a plane crash, your case is in far better hands with an aviation attorney who has extensive experience in aviation accident law compared to an everyday personal injury attorney.

Aviation accidents are complex with a multitude of parties that can be held liable. The aircraft manufacturer, owner, operator, airline and insurance providers are the parties often named in aviation accident lawsuits. But several other parties can also be held responsible for an accident, including parts manufacturers, maintenance personnel, air traffic controllers, and airport owners and operators, just to name a few.

Plane crash litigation focuses on establishing the possible cause (or causes) of the accident, a highly technical process involving the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and independent investigators working for the victims and their families, commercial airlines and aircraft manufacturers. As a plane crash victim, you need an aviation lawyer with the technical skills necessary to conduct a thorough investigation as well as the legal skills to determine liability under applicable state, federal and international laws.

The stakes are often high in aviation accident lawsuits. With recoveries often reaching the seven-figure mark and sometimes eight figures, defendants in these cases will go to great lengths to avoid or minimize their liability. An experienced aviation accident lawyer will know how to build a case that gives you the best opportunity for success.  

The aviation attorneys at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman have decades of experience litigating cases against some of the world’s largest airlines and aircraft manufacturers, as well as many of the small aircraft manufacturers. In each case, our number one priority is to get victims the help they need after experiencing such tragedy.
