Every time you get on a plane, you are entrusting your live to the pilots, engineers, and flight coordinators that make it possible for you to fly.
Airplanes, helicopters and other aircraft are complicated machines, and there are several things that can cause an aviation accident to happen. Manufacturing mistakes can cause an engine to break down, miscommunication can lead to a plane taking off when another airplane is approaching, and pilot errors may cause a plane to crash as it lands.
If you suffered an injury or a loved one lost their life in an airplane or helicopter crash, the lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are here to help you. We have experience locally and throughout the world getting justice for families of aviation accident victims. Contact us today at (877) 562-0000 or fill out our free case evaluation form. The initial consultation is free, and we only get paid if we win your case.
A Global Record of Success in Aviation Litigation
The aviation lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys have successfully defended the rights of accident victims worldwide. Ernest Cory, founding partner of the firm, obtained settlements for the families of 219 passengers who were involved in a plane crash in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Mr. Cory also represented the family of an Air National Guard Captain who died on a routine training mission when the engine of this Air Force jet exploded. The firm filed suit against the manufacturer of the engine, claiming that the company did not build the engine to the standards required by the Air Force. The settlement was the first successful suit ever brought against the manufacturer involving this engine.
Cory Watson Attorneys also obtained a large settlement in an aviation accident case involving 23 passengers who died when their plane was preparing to land in Honduras. Despite limitations put in place by international law, Mr. Cory successfully won compensation for his clients above the maximum amount based on the willful misconduct of the airline.
