Aircraft accident investigations and litigation defense are a noteworthy area of our attorneys’ experience.
For one client, an airplane component part manufacturer facing liability in a high-profile plane crash off the Canadian coast, our attorneys were successful in negotiating an extremely favorable settlement on behalf of the company and its insurers.
Using our in-depth understanding of the technical, mechanical and engineering issues underlying aircraft crash and incident lawsuits, we defend clients against allegations of causation and negligence.
Our experience includes working with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the Canadian Transportation Safety Board (CTSB), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during the often complex and high-stakes investigation process. McGlinchey Stafford’s accomplished products liability litigation team provides additional trial resources when appropriate.
We also continue to defend our aviation and aerospace clients in toxic torts and long-term exposure litigation arising from the use of aviation products, whether it be in single claimant litigation or in class action claims.
Our counsel to airports nationwide includes defending against a myriad of claims ranging from slip and fall accidents, premises liability, security and cargo issues, and passenger disputes.
