We Provide Solutions

Over the recent years, the aviation industry has experienced an exponentially faster growth in terms of innovations compared to other forms of transportation. Due to this movement, traveling across hundreds to thousands of miles has noticeably become easier for many, and territorial borders have become less apparent. In simpler terms, the world has shrunk dramatically.

80% of Modern aircraft accidents result from Human Error

Mechanical failures were the primary cause of aviation accidents back in 1903 but those have dipped throughout the years.  Natural Causes will remain constant, but newer innovations and technology assure that remains unlikely. Laws that effect compensation are a lot more complex.

Certain Laws make legal compensations a lot more Complex

With the fading of geographical borders, however, finding smart solutions to bureaucratic and legal issues has also become increasingly more complex. Multiple factors of different nature determine the compensation that we may claim on behalf of our Clients. The amount of the compensation depends on certain factors such as:

  • Type of flight and Itinerary/domestic or international
  • Place where the ticket was purchased
  • Nationality of the Passenger
  • Applicability or not of certain national and international treaties
  • Place where the aircraft and/or all its parts were manufactured;
  • Type of claims to be raised by the attorneys handling the case

Looking Back

McDonnell Douglas MD-82

In 1987, a Northwest Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-82 aircraft crashed on takeoff at Detroit’s Metropolitan Airport, killing 154 passengers on the plane and 5 on the ground. The only survivor was a 4-year-old girl. After investigation, the probable cause was deemed to be crew failure with regards to following their standard checklist.

SPANAIR

On August 20, 2008, a similar case of crew failure occurred with another MD-82 aircraft operated by SPANAIR. As the Take-off Warning System (TOWS) failed to notify the pilots about the problem, the plane also crashed on takeoff at Madrid’s Barajas International Airport, killing 154 passengers and crew.

“Today, approximately 1100 MD Series aircraft with similar defects are still taking to the skies.”
