Types of Aviation Lawsuits

Motley Rice seeks to hold accountable those responsible in personal injury or wrongful death cases that involve aviation crashes or incidents. Cases that we have litigated or are currently litigating include the following types of aviation:

Major Commercial Airlines

  • Includes both domestic and foreign flights
  • Encompasses typical fare paying, scheduled flights
  • Also includes chartered flights, air taxis and private planes for hire

Regional Carriers

  • May be owned by or have a code-share agreement with a major airline
  • May fly under major carriers’ names, paint and logos
  • Often fly small, foreign-built jets
  • May pay employees and contractors substantially less than the major carriers

General Aviation

Aviation lawsuits can include wrongful death, personal injury, product liability, strict liability, class actions and multinational and cross-border litigation. Our team works with families and family probate attorneys to resolve these and other complex legal issues.
