Most airplane accidents don’t involve commercial jets; indeed, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, 97 percent of aviation-related fatalities occur in general aviation, which includes private planes, corporate jets and recreational aircraft. ABC News reports an average of five small plane crashes every day.
Although these airplanes are smaller in size, the investigations and lawsuits are typically more complex, as private aircraft often operate with fewer records and restrictions than commercial jets. A law firm must have considerable experience and resources to pursue aviation litigation, as these cases often involve challenging accident reconstruction scenarios, numerous government agencies and an array of experts, from engineers to meteorologists to air traffic controllers. With decades of experience in complex accident litigation, Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader is well-positioned to help victims and families affected by aviation accidents.
