Gresham, P.C. is experienced in dealing with the following types of aviation
Commercial Airline Crashes – These kind of accidents can possibly result in the sudden and
unexpected death of tens or even hundreds of people. When a crash involves
a U.S. carrier or U.S.-related flight in general, the National Transportation
Safety Board representatives will head the investigation with the assistance
of the FAA and other industry experts. If you have been involved in a
commercial airline accident, whether you sustained significant injuries
or suffered the loss of a family member, it’s important
to not sign anything given to you by anyone after the incident without
consultation with a trusted lawyer. It is also
a violation of federal law for an attorney to contact any of the crash
victim’s family members by any means of communication.
Small plane/general aviation crashes – These type of accidents commonly occur during interstate flights,
may involve pilots and passengers who live in various states, and often
deals with maintenance facilities and manufacturers located in different states.
Helicopter Accidents – Compared to the capabilities of an aircraft, helicopters possess
complex rotor systems which are governed by one or more engines and a
convoluted set of gear boxes and shafts which are all interconnected.
It takes years of helicopter flight experience, an in-depth understanding
of helicopter maintenance and knowledge of aerodynamics to pilot such a craft.
