A Professional, Comprehensive Approach

Aircraft Accident Attorney in Virginia BeachAs with all personal injury cases, the key in airplane accident cases is proving negligence – demonstrating that an individual, multiple individuals or an organization (or any combination of thereof) violated the duty they had to other people through unacceptable negligence or misconduct.

Proving this isn't always as easy as it sounds. “Negligence” is a term that has a very specific meaning in personal injury law. Demonstrating that an entity – especially a large company or other organization – was negligent according to the legal standard of proof requires ample evidence. The only way to acquire this evidence is through an effective investigation.

In many cases, the negligent parties in an airplane accident have included:

  • Pilots
  • Ground crew
  • Air traffic controllers
  • The designers or manufacturers of the aircraft
  • Mechanics
  • Designers or manufacturers of a specific part
  • The airline or other carrier

As you can see, there are a lot of possibilities in every airplane accident, and we will not go into your investigation with any pre-conceptions. We will follow the evidence where it leads, and we will not hesitate to pursue compensation from the liable party, even if it's a large, powerful company with a capable legal team.

We can make that pledge because we have the resources and institutional knowledge to do so. We know how to shift through the wreckage of an airplane accident scene and how to analyze recovered evidence. We know how to interview witnesses and how to interpret federal regulations.

We will not be intimidated, either by the complexity of your case or by the size and power of the negligent parties. Our airplane accident attorney has a proven track record of helping victims like you in the aftermath of a catastrophic accident.
