What to Look For in an Aviation Claim Attorney
If you’re considering filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit after an aviation accident, you need an attorney with a couple of major qualifications. A history of success in aviation claims. Because of the complex nature of aviation claims, you need an attorney who knows what to look for, where to look for precedent, and how to present a case.
A team of expert witnesses. Many different fields of expertise go into building a case for an aviation claim, including accident reconstruction, metallurgy, avionics and beyond. You need an attorney with good relationships with experts in all potential fields in order to build the best case for your claim.
Our Kansas City aviation accident lawyer, Kirk Presley, has decades of nationwide trial experience representing clients involved in plane accident cases. As an example, Kirk Presley served as lead discovery counsel for one of our clients who won a $12,000,000 settlement following a LifeNet helicopter crash in Clay County, Missouri, after the helicopter ran out of fuel while the pilot was texting during flight.
Investigating the Cause of Your Aviation Accident
Investigating airplane and helicopter crashes can be very complicated because private aircraft usually do not have “black boxes.” Adding to the complex nature of these cases is the fact that experts in avionics, metallurgy, accident reconstruction and other technical areas, are usually necessary. Our firm not only has experience representing clients in these cases, but also has access to a variety of aviation experts who understand the complexities of the aircraft involved.
We have represented clients who have experienced unfortunate situations regarding an aircraft including:
- Defective equipment
- Defective design
- Negligent maintenance or repair
- In-flight instrument or avionics failure
- Pilot error
- Fueling errors
