Charter, corporate air crashes: the role of proven legal counsel

Many readers of our aviation accidents blog at Kreindler & Kreindler LLP (a national law firm with offices in New York City, Boston and Los Angeles) have likely seen dire news accounts many times of aircraft post-accident investigations. A recurring image in many such stories is focused upon a team of investigators with the acronym NTSB emblazoned on their jackets combing through wreckage.

That is indeed common, with the National Transportation Safety Board routinely assuming central oversight in airline crashes involving major commercial airlines.

What about smaller aircraft, though? Does the NTSB play a close supervisory role in aviation accident cases involving charter or corporate aircraft?

Indeed, it can, and often does. As we note on our website, though, "the official investigation will often be limited in its scope" when a large commercial airline is not involved.

In such a case, our attorneys often step in to supplement the work done by regulatory authorities or, indeed, take on important investigatory tasks that will not be undertaken otherwise. As we stress on a relevant online page of our firm, we conduct post-crash investigations "that can determine causes that were overlooked in the official investigation" or perhaps not officially investigated at all.

And we bring singular capabilities and experience to bear in such instances, with many of our attorneys being pilots, engineers and aviation safety authorities and commanding broad-based acumen in aircraft accident investigation.

We invite readers' close scrutiny of our website and attorneys' backgrounds, and welcome contacts to the firm regarding any aircraft accident-related questions or concerns.
