Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP has the resources to investigate and prosecute aviation wrongful death claims. Aviation experts are necessary to investigate and re-create aviation accidents. We seek out the best aviation and engineering experts in the nation to investigate the cause of a crash, and to determine how it could have been prevented. Multiple errors can contribute to an aviation accident, including pilot error, weather, excessive loading, improperly maintained equipment, defective design, faulty manuals, and improper training. The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate aviation accidents; however, it is important to have experienced and qualified experts on your side to ensure that all possible causes of the accident are being fully and properly investigated. Frequently pilot error is assigned as the cause of the casualty, even when multiple other negligent acts also contributed to the accident.
