Aviation Accident Attorneys: Seeking Compensation for Victims

The aviation industry in the United States boasts an impressive safety record, but when something goes wrong, results can have tragic consequences from airplane accidents. Our aviation attorneys have experience bringing justice to family members who have lost loved ones from wrongful death in a plane crash or other forms of air travel, which has its own unique set of emotions and legal issues. Our compassionate personal injury team knows how to navigate these cases and understands that even though the situation may be a large-scale airplane crash disaster, aviation accident victims and each case are unique and deserve compassion.

Our legal team of aviation lawyers is proud to represent families who lost loved ones in the tragic crash of Ethiopian Air Flight 302, a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft that plunged to the ground six minutes after takeoff on March 10, 2019. Our aviation attorneys are members of the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee, the collaboration of plaintiffs’ law firms working together in the airline crash litigation against the Boeing Company for that tragedy.

Airplane accident lawyers delivering justice through other avenues

At Romanucci & Blandin we pride ourselves on continuing the fight for justice after our cases. Beyond just verdicts and settlements, our aviation accident attorneys and communications team have worked to make important lasting change through advocacy using media and other channels for the grounding of that aircraft. As an example, we have made blogs and social media posts to educate the public on how to identify a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft when they book airline tickets. We also work to make significant and impactful changes and reforms to prevent these aircraft accidents from happening again. Public discussions and pressure put on federal agencies, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), to investigate and revamp safety protocols for commercial aviation or private plane and aircraft travel.

The results we have achieved in aviation accident cases are a testament to our team’s dedication to clients. For example, we are proud to have secured justice for a wide range of awards for people who have lost loved ones, as well as injured individuals who have been in aircraft accidents, with life-altering conditions. 

If you lost a loved one in an aviation accident, our team knows how the system works, how insurance companies operate, and what judges, juries or mediators need to see to understand your claim.
