Aviation Accidents

Experienced Aviation Accident Lawyers

You are far more likely to die in a fatal accident in a car than in an airplane. When commercial airliners, helicopters and private planes do crash, however, the result can be disastrous. Those fortunate enough to survive may be left with life-altering injuries or disabilities.

The attorneys of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have successfully represented clients who were injured in aviation accidents as well as the family members of those who died a wrongful death in airplane crashes.

Singapore and Alaska Airlines Cases

Our aviation accident experience includes representing two clients who were involved in the runway collision involving Singapore Airlines Flight 006 on Oct.31, 2000, in which 83 of the 179 plane occupants were killed. Our clients survived, but suffered horrible burns.

We also represented clients involved in an incident aboard Alaska Airlines Flight 93. A defect in a screw in the tail of the airliner rendered the craft uncontrollable.

We focus on pressing for total accountability in crashes involving commercial and general aviation, military aircraft and helicopters. We fight for compensation in cases involving defectively designed and engineered engines and parts.

Trial Lawyers Who Work to Maximize Recoveries

Major airlines and aviation manufacturers pressure survivors to swiftly settle claims, away from the public eye. We know that public safety and our clients' rights are better served by preparing every case for trial.

Our goal is to achieve the best outcome for each and every client. Greene Broillet & Wheeler has a reputation for winning, and our opponents — the insurance companies, major corporations and big defense law firms — all know that we do not settle quickly or quietly. This adds to our ability to leverage the highest possible recovery for our injured clients and their loved ones.
