Airplane Crash Trial Lawyers



Plane crash investigations are complex. We know what questions to ask and where to get the answers.

Whether it’s a large commercial airliner or a small general aviation aircraft, modern aviation in the United States is overwhelmingly safe and reliable. When plane crashes do occur, they demand a comprehensive investigation to not only determine what happened, but more importantly, why, how and who was responsible.

Following any crash in the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board immediately mount investigations, but this is just the start of the process to obtain justice for victims and their families. The Heard Law Firm has the legal experience and the expert resources to initiate aggressive and independent investigations of airplane and helicopter crashes.

We understand from years of work in complicated, high-stakes litigation that these cases demand a rapid response to document and preserve evidence but also persistence to pursue all angles. Such thorough, independent investigations are critically important in order to uncover operator error, design defects or negligent maintenance and prove it in the courtroom.

This firm’s track record in complicated product defect and complex commercial litigation is a testament to our ability to take on armies of corporate defense lawyers. When it’s time to stand up in front of a jury, our trial team assembles technical and engineering data and communicates it in a way that resonates with juries. We know the value showing – rather than telling – the jury what happened.
