Airplane Crashes

Travel by air, whether in personal aircraft or on commercial airlines, has become a part of modern life. While air travel is safe overall, the results of airplane and passenger jet crashes are often disastrous. Sometimes the investigation reveals that the crash was preventable. Some select examples wherein a personal or commercial airplane crash may have been preventable:

  • Product defect
  • Mechanical failure
  • Design flaws
  • Pilot error
  • Weather influence
  • Air traffic controller error
  • Bird strike
  • On-board fire
  • Lack of fuel

Personal or commercial aircraft crashes are unusual cases—we know, we’ve handled many in our time. We have tried everything from single-engine plane malfunctions to high-profile airplane crash cases, like the one that killed Senator Paul Wellstone, his wife, and four other passengers.

If you have lost a loved one in an aircraft disaster, perhaps we can help. To get started, please complete our free case evaluation form above.

Our attorneys handle matters primarily in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
