When aviation professionals are careless, make simple mistakes, or intend to cause harm, the results will likely be disastrous.

At KNR, we ask, “what more can we do?”
Due to the size, weight, and speed of most commercial airplanes and the number of passengers onboard, an accident on the ground or in the air can lead to mass casualties. An accident involving a personal plane may have fewer fatalities; however, that does not make the incident any less devastating to the pilot, passengers, and their loved ones.
Pilot error is one of the most common causes of all airplane accidents, and many authorities cite it as the reason behind approximately 50 percent of incidents. Pilot error does not necessarily arise during an average flight. Instead, pilot error tends to be an issue when conditions become less than ideal. Your lawyer will investigate the accident and preserve evidence to ensure objective experts can weigh in on what went wrong and who is responsible. Your lawyer will also take a hard look at the pilot as well as the other common causes of airplane accidents.
Our statewide practice is designed to make going through a claim or lawsuit more convenient and accessible for aviation accident victims. With 12 Ohio locations, KNR is a call or click away.

The leading cause of fatal aviation accidents over the last 20 years is Loss Of Control In-Flight.

Upon demonstrating that party’s responsibility and liability, your lawyers will pursue a financial recovery that compensates you for losses such as:
If your loved one died in an aviation accident, you may have cause to pursue a wrongful death claim. And under some circumstances, punitive damages may be possible if the party responsible for your airplane accident acted with malice or gross negligence.
