We Do What We Say We'll Do
The western Pennsylvania law firm of Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George can represent the interests of airplane accident victims and surviving family members in both wrongful death actions and personal injury litigation.
Our board-certified civil trial lawyers work to ensure that clients are compensated for the devastating loss of a loved one or the catastrophic injuries suffered in a plane crash.
Airplane accidents are typically caused by:
- Pilot error — Negligence in preflight checks; dangerous maneuvers; flying with knowledge of bad weather; disregarding tower instructions or warnings; errors in taxi, takeoff, or landing
- Airplane defect — Failure of the plane to perform as designed; defects in the rudder, ailerons, engines, landing gear, or other components
- Negligent maintenance — Inadequate preflight inspections; disregarding recommended repairs; shortcuts or defective replacement parts; failure to de-ice wings
Litigation of Aircraft Accidents
We have a board-certified civil trial specialist with experience in both airplane accidents and products liability who knows what to look for in building a case for liability. We pore over every detail of the findings of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), which investigates airplane accidents. We obtain data from the “black box” and cockpit recordings.
Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George represented the wife and children of a man who was among 132 people killed in the crash of a commercial carrier. Working with a steering committee of attorneys representing other victims, we retained aviation engineering experts who pinpointed a defective rudder as the cause of the accident. Our firm interviewed co-workers and hired economists to project the loss of future earnings over the course of the man’s normal life expectancy. After four years of discovery, we reached an eight-figure settlement on behalf of his family.
