Commercial Airliner Crashes And Wrongful Death Claims
Whenever we board a commercial flight — whether a short commuter hopper or a cross-country flight — we literally put our safety in the hands of pilots, cabin crew, air traffic controllers, the aircraft’s maintenance providers and the manufacturers of the aircraft and its component parts.
While statistically commercial airline crashes are rare, the sheer number of commercial flights in the U.S. each day means that crashes and other in-air incidents do happen regularly. In a best-case scenario, passengers can hope to escape an in-flight incident, emergency landing or crash with minimal injury. At the other end of the spectrum, families may be forced to determine their legal options following the death of a loved one in a plane crash.

Cases involving commercial plane crashes are among the most complex and high-stakes personal injury claims imaginable.
