More Than 40 Years of Aviation Experience

As our hectic lives get faster and faster, more people turn to air travel as a means of cutting down on lengthy travel time. At Hare Wynn, our attorneys are not new to the area of aviation law. We have represented catastrophically injured clients and wrongful death victims of aviation disasters and airplane crashes for over 40 years. While our offices are located in Birmingham, Alabama, Little Rock, Arkansas, and Lexington, Kentucky, our aviation practice is international in scope. We have handled aviation cases and airline crashes, which have occurred throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Africa, and South America.

Aviation accident law covers both major airline crashes and general aviation accidents. General aviation accidents include all non-commercial aircraft including: small planes, business jets, charter flights, pleasure crafts and helicopters. The most common causes of both major airline crashes and general aviation accidents include:

  • Pilot error
  • Faulty equipment
  • Federal Aviation Administration regulations violations
  • Structural or design problems
  • Negligence of Flight Service Station employees
  • Negligence of Federal Air Traffic Controllers
  • Dangerous or defective airplane design or manufacture

Hare Wynn actively engages in all areas of aviation law relative to personal injuries and wrongful death which include: litigation against the major airlines, military, general aviation, the United States government, and all major aircraft manufacturers.
