Aviation Lawsuits and Your Legal Rights

The aviation industry is a business. Although airlines and aircraft manufacturers are responsible for the security and safety of pilots and passengers, corners are sometimes cut in an effort to minimize costs and increase profits. The aviation industry's first priority is to make money, and providing and implementing adequate safety and security measures can be more costly to the aviation industry than dealing with the aftermath of incidents that occur due to safety or security lapses.

As a result, passengers, pilots and crew members, airline and airport staff, and even pedestrians suffer injury or death each year due to plane crashes that may have been avoided had uniform safety and security guidelines been in place.

Motley Rice's aviation team seeks justice on behalf of those suffering as a result of aviation disasters and fights to hold the aviation industry accountable. With years of experience and the time and knowledge necessary to see a case through from start to finish, our aviation attorneys arm each client with the means to not only take on powerful opponents but also speak out about the importance of placing passenger rights and safety above profits.
