Aviation Accidents Attorneys

Few law firms have the specialized legal knowledge and experience required to get justice for victims of aviation accidents and crashes. Among these select few, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC takes a new approach. TTo the maximum extent possible, one of our pilot experts along with one of our aviation lawyers flies an actual or simulated flight under circumstances similar to the accident flight. When confronted with difficult situations in flight, it is the pilot in command who must make decisions. Our approach allows us to enter the minds of pilots at these critical decision points — to see what they saw and feel what they felt. Often times, pilot error is not the root cause — much less the sole cause— of a crash or an in-flight injury. A defective design or product, negligent maintenance, air traffic control errors, or a host of other issues could be to blame. Led by Hunter Shkolnik, a thirty-year trial lawyer and aviation attorney with a history of success, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC is the law firm to serve you when you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an aviation accident. When an airplane fails, you need representation with the experience to accurately determine the cause of the crash and get the maximum compensation for you. With their principal offices in New York City and additional offices with expert airplane crash litigation lawyers and aviation lawyers in California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, and affiliates through the United States, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC is readily available to answer your questions about an aviation accident, no matter where it occurs.
