If you have lost a loved one in an airplane crash or helicopter accident, or if you have been injured in an airline accident, you need to speak with an attorney who not only understands aviation law, but also has worked in the aviation industry for close to three decades.
Michael Pearson has a background that is vastly different from other lawyers. He is an active trial lawyer with substantial experience in state and federal courts. In addition to practicing aviation and trial law, he has also worked as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air traffic control specialist for more than 26 years in various busy FAA facilities. Michael has even worked as a Quality Assurance Specialist for the FAA, where he was responsible for accident investigations. Mr. Pearson is a graduate of the FAA’s Transportation Safety Institute airplane accident investigation school. In addition, Michael taught aviation law at several universities and is an aviation law professor at Arizona State University. He has authored a textbook “Foundations of Aviation Law” for a major academic publisher. Such superior knowledge is crucial to cases involving airplane or helicopter accidents.
An airplane or helicopter crash is not your typical accident.
While statistics show that these accidents are less common than auto collisions, they tend to generate far graver consequences. Few people walk away from an airplane or helicopter accident unharmed. Instead, they are faced with painful and serious injuries, if they even survive. Typically, an aviation accident leaves a family grieving the loss of a loved one.
Domestic aviation accidents are considered personal injury or wrongful death claims, and are usually governed by state law. International aviation accidents have their own unique set of factors that are quite complex. Since airplane and helicopter crashes are very different than other types of accidents, it is crucial to talk with an airplane crash attorney immediately. However, calling a standard personal injury lawyer can actually be detrimental to your case. Aviation accident cases have been dismissed because of legal issues and other matters in which the average lawyer is unfamiliar. It is crucial that your lawyer has experience dealing with the FAA, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), aviation insurers, and industry experts.
Evidence remains crucial to recovering damages in plane crash and helicopter accident cases, and your attorney will need to get started immediately. Some of the steps an airplane crash lawyer will promptly take include:
- Preserving wreckage
- Collecting communications relevant to the accident flight
- Locating and interviewing key witnesses
- Identifying issues relating to jurisdiction (the geographic area where the case will be heard)
This list is just a sample of the many steps that your airplane crash attorney will need to take. At the law firm of Curry, Pearson & Wooten, PLC, not only do we know what is involved in aviation law cases, but we also have experience that is unmatched by most firms.
