We have a team of reputable lawyers and able experts available to determine the cause of aviation or helicopter accidents, and aid you in making your case whether in trial or in settlement negotiations.
Our firm has the resources to fully investigate the cause of the accident, which may not be limited to the negligence of the pilot, but also may include the negligence of the airline in hiring unqualified and inexperienced pilots or failing to conduct regular safety and maintenance checks on the airplane or helicopter. We relentlessly pursue any claims our clients may have against third parties by conducting extensive discovery, seeking advice from medical professionals and other experts, as well as obtaining any recorded electronic crash data.
Louisiana law applies pure comparative fault to aviation accidents including accidents involving planes and helicopters. This means that each person or entity that causes or contributes to the cause of the accident that occurs is responsible for paying for the damage it causes. Therefore, you may be able to recover from multiple parties.
We give our clients and their cases personalized attention. Our initial meeting will be face-to-face and may be conducted at the client’s home or at our offices. Together with local counsel, we are able to represent clients throughout the country and are willing to schedule a meeting at your home at your convenience. Initial meetings involve no out-of-pocket cost or obligation to the injured party or the family. Following our meeting, we are prepared to quickly obtain investigative reports from the proper investigative agencies and request all available information concerning the accident pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.
Therefore, if you have been involved in an aviation accident, we strongly recommend that you contact us immediately after a serious and catastrophic aviation accident occurs so that our team of experienced investigators and experts can determine the cause of the accident, identify any responsible third parties, take any witness statements, and preserve important evidence.
