CHICAGO AIRPLANE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Award-winning attorneys with decades of experience.
At Cavanagh Law Group, our attorneys are well versed in every aspect of aviation liability law, including cases involving pilot or manufacturer negligence, airline or supplier liability, government liability and jurisdictional issues between airlines, carriers and affiliates. Though airplane and helicopter crashes are rare, they often result in serious injuries or death. Our attorneys retain highly respected engineers and mechanical experts to illustrate fault and help clients cover medical bills and any additional needs that may arise.
We also represent clients when accidents occur at airports, on jetways, during a flight or while entering and exiting a poorly secured gate or tarmac. In 2014, Cavanagh Law Group obtained a $6.6 million verdict on behalf of the family of John Bruce, who sustained fatal injuries while working as a ramp serviceman for United Airlines at Al-Mubarak Air Base in Kuwait. The case was brought against a government contractor after an employee moved a belt loader, causing Bruce to fall 12 feet. He sustained significant brain injuries and died six days later.
Helicopters have gained popularity with tourists and sightseers in recent years and are even occasionally offered as a ride option on the Uber app. Because of their unique design, helicopters require different maintenance, pilot training and flight regulations than other aircraft. Common causes of helicopter crashes include engine failure, poor weather conditions, pilot negligence or error, design flaws or mechanical or electrical malfunctions.
