Crosley Law Firm, PC has experience representing victims and their loved ones in airplane and helicopter crash cases. Our team of legal professionals, investigators, and experts knows what it takes to successfully prosecute aviation cases against the responsible parties.
All aviation accidents are investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). By law, aircraft and helicopter manufacturers, as well as airlines, are allowed to participate in the investigation. However, victims and their attorneys are excluded from the NTSB investigation.
Often, the NTSB is influenced by manufacturers’ or airlines’ participation in the investigation. This may lead to a determination that the cause of the accident was not through fault of a manufacturer or airline.
An aviation accident can result from any number of causes, including but not limited to pilot error, equipment failure, design or structural defects, maintenance errors, engine failure, and violations of Federal Aviation Administration regulations. It is imperative that victims of aviation accidents retain an attorney experienced in aviation claims as soon as possible to assemble a team of experts to conduct their own investigation of the accident.
