Our Aviation Accident Attorneys Are Pilots & Seasoned Aviation Litigators

Aviation connects the world. It allows us to travel thousands of miles back and forth in a single day. In just over half a century, it has become commonplace to commute from Florida to New York for a meeting, and return in time for dinner that night. For those with a pilot’s license, aviation opens up a new world of travel opportunities, from vacations to business-related day trips. It is an activity that connects family, business and commerce.

The U.S. airspace system is heavily travelled, particularly in Florida where the year-round temperate climate attracts commercial aviation, tourists, private aviation, flight training and national annual aviation gatherings. Aviation activities involve not only adherence to federal and state regulations, but compliance with local ordinances as well as administrative and lobbying efforts.

Our Attorneys are Pilots and Seasoned Aviation Litigators

Partner Todd Payne is a federally certified aircraft pilot with years of flight and aviation experience. In 2013, Mr. Payne obtained a $100 million verdict against a Florida air traffic control company that issued flight instructions to a banner towing aircraft operated by a commercial pilot. The instructions, which directed the pilot to fly a non-standard and very tight landing pattern, led to the loss of control of the aircraft and severe neurological, cognitive and physical injuries to the pilot. Mr. Payne’s aviation experience played a significant role in obtaining a successful result for the pilot.

Aviation activities entail an increased element of risk management. Whether you are flying aboard a private single engine flight to the Bahamas or boarding a domestic jet flight to Los Angeles, accidents and injuries can occur anywhere along the chain of events that make flight a possibility. When aviation accidents occur, you need knowledgeable legal representation, capable of collecting the necessary facts and evidence before they are lost to time.
