Airplane Crashes Are Seldom Fender Benders | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Because I am a licensed private airplane pilot, I have access to a tremendous amount of information regarding airplane crashes throughout the United States. It will come as no surprise that most of these crashes produce serious personal injuries or death for the occupants of the airplane. Aircraft crashes do not produce “fender benders.”


The majority of these airplane crashes are the result of mismanagement by the airplane pilot of his fuel supply so families often want to consider a wrongful death lawsuit or suit for catastrophic or serious personal injury. This can be because the pilot and crew failed to realize how much fuel they have on board before starting an airplane flight.

In order to prove negligence in a airplane/aircraft case, it is crucial to have personal injury attorneys/lawyers that have both knowledge of the field and real trial experience and one of our lawyers is himself a licensed pilot. The Virgina/Carolina Law Firm of Shapiro, Lewis & Appleton routinely confer with some of the foremost medical experts in the country on behalf of their clients, and have a long and distinguished history of taking cases to trial with successful results.
