Aviation law cases require high-level experience in many aspects of aviation, not solely legal expertise. In addition to having a meticulous understanding of available legal remedies, an aviation attorney must be thoroughly knowledgeable on engineering principles, aeromechanics and FAA protocol. The causes of commercial and military aviation crashes often share many similarities: pilot error, poor maintenance, air traffic control mistakes, or even faulty equipment. It takes a special attorney to investigate and represent people and families who have suffered because of an airplane crash.
