Instrument-Rated Pilot/Aviation Accident Attorney

Aviation and law are both highly specified areas of knowledge. To be successful, an aviation attorney needs to have a thorough understanding of the litigation process, the substantive law surrounding aviation accident litigation and the complicated science of airplanes.

As a Mobile, Alabama, airplane accident attorney with 43 years of experience, as well as an instrument-rated pilot, I bring the essential knowledge and experience to all of my aviation accident claims.

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in aviation accident claims in our native Alabama, and John has handled state and federal cases in many other states. If you have a claim in Alabama or anywhere in the United States, and you are looking for an attorney with litigation and aviation experience, call 251-338-1695 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.

Causes of Aviation Accidents

There are many variables that can cause an airplane accident, including:

Pilot error: Whether through inexperience, lack of training, alcohol and drug use, or simple honest mistakes, pilot error is a responsible factor for a great number of airplane accidents annually.

Violations of regulations: Many otherwise talented pilots make the critical error of ignoring aviation regulations, flying too low, performing dangerous maneuvers or overloading their planes.

Inadequate airplanes: Some airline companies produce products of unacceptably poor quality, leading to accidents. Some are improperly tested, monitored and certified.

Poorly inspected airplanes: In many cases, technical glitches that cause the accidents would have been discovered through simple, routine inspections.

The damage that results from aviation accidents can be severe. We represent plaintiffs and defendants in aviation cases involving property damage, personal injury and wrongful death. With John’s experience as both an attorney and as a pilot, we have the knowledge to defend your rights and help you get the best outcome possible in your case.
