— Dallas Managing Partner Ladd Sanger added as name partner —
AUSTIN, TX – Slack & Davis, L.L.P, a national and international personal injury law firm, announces the inclusion of Ladd Sanger, Managing Partner of the Dallas office, as a name partner, which has changed the firm’s name to Slack Davis Sanger LLP. Sanger, an FAA-licensed commercial airplane and helicopter pilot, focuses his practice on air crash litigation and has litigated cases in multiple states and federal courts around the U.S. He has been with the firm since 2003.
“The firm’s name change is in recognition of Ladd’s significant contributions to the firm, his dedication to his clients, and his dedication to advocating for aviation passenger safety,” said Michael Slack, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Slack & Davis.
Sanger, along with the firm, has handled numerous helicopter and airplane crashes and through litigation, and worked to hold operators, manufacturers, and others responsible for the serious injury and death of aviation passengers among other accomplishments.
Sanger was also instrumental in getting a prominent U.S. helicopter manufacturer to retrofit the fuel system in of one of their helicopter models to be more crash resistant. The fuel tank sold on the helicopter was not a crashworthy design and had resulted in numerous post-crash fires causing serious injury and death in otherwise survivable crashes. The modified design resulted in greater passenger safety as the new fuel system is far more crashworthy and, accordingly, has reduced and almost eliminated the likelihood of post-crash fires.
“I am honored to be part of the firm’s name, and look forward to our firm’s continued efforts to advocate for passenger safety and bring justice and rightful compensation to victims and their families,” Sanger explained. “It’s rare to be amongst a group of top-notch lawyers giving victims and their families a voice against oftentimes wealthy and powerful adversaries.”
Sanger has been recognized by Super Lawyers since 2008, named as one of The Best Lawyers in America since 2004 and is AV®-rated by Martindale-Hubbell. He is licensed to practice law in Texas, Colorado and Wyoming.
