Aviation Crashes



Aviation crashes or accidents, whether they involve jets, propeller aircraft or helicopters, are usually catastrophic. People rarely walk away unscathed from airplane and helicopter crashes. Unfortunately, it is much more common to suffer serious injury and death when an aircraft goes down.

Our experienced aircraft accident lawyers will investigate the circumstances of the accident and file an aircraft accident lawsuit that seeks to recover compensation for any harm you’ve suffered. If you’ve lost a loved one in an aviation accident, we will assess whether the accident is due to someone else’s negligence. If so, we will file a wrongful death lawsuit to pursue compensatory damages for you and your family.

An effective lawyer for aircraft crash victims has to be knowledgeable about both legal and aviation issues while providing much-needed emotional support to clients. Our attorneys fit the bill on all counts, making Smith Haughey a go-to resource in cases of private airplane accidents, commercial airplane accidents, charter flight accidents, and helicopter accidents.


When we accept your aviation accident case, we will usually enact a contingent fee arrangement—meaning we will not get paid until you do. We believe in every case we accept, and we put everything we have towards fighting for you.
