Aviation Litigation

Aviation Litigation

At Engstrom, Lipscomb & Lack, we have handled hundreds of aviation crash cases since our inception in 1974. Our firm handles personal injury and wrongful death cases arising out of accidents involving commercial air carriers, commuter airlines, privately owned airplanes and helicopters, and military aircraft, in the United States and internationally.

The aviation division in the firm is comprised of litigation attorneys who have extensive experience in aviation. The team's members include experienced private and commercial pilots with in-depth knowledge relating to piloting, aircraft and helicopter maintenance, international laws, federal aviation regulations, flight operations, weather, human factors and accident reconstruction.

We know aviation litigation because we are part of the aviation culture. In addition, the courts regularly appoint us to the plaintiff's steering committee in complex multi-district aviation lawsuits involving a mass casualty disaster. The team also has extensive trial experience in both foreign and domestic crash litigation.

Engstrom, Lipscomb & Lack has been retained in the Asiana Airlines, flight 214 crash. On July 6, 2013, a Boeing 777 travelling from Seoul, Korea crashed during an attempted landing at San Francisco International Airport, killing 3 and injuring an additional 180 people on board.
