Whether an accident takes place on a commercial airline, a private plane, a helicopter or an international flight, fatal aviation catastrophes are devastating for loved ones. Since 2017, a rise in the number of these tragedies suggests that air travel has become increasingly dangerous, with 561 fatalities in 2018 and 231 fatalities in just the first five months of 2019.
Unfortunately, many of the aviation accidents that occurred could have been prevented, if only more extensive pilot training, proper aircraft maintenance, stronger safety regulations, or a combination of these safeguards were in place. Behind the statistics are lives that have been shattered. Every family that is impacted is one too many.
If you or a family member has been a victim in an aviation-related accident, having a compassionate, hardworking attorney on your side can help you navigate the difficult work in the aftermath. The Slack Davis Sanger team is made up of licensed pilots, including a former NASA aerospace engineer who understands the technical aspects of a crash and can determine when a pilot, manufacturer, airline or another party is responsible for life-altering injuries or the loss of life. While we fight to secure justice for you, we also work to make flying safer and to help prevent catastrophic accidents from occurring again.
