Small Plane And Commuter Plane Crash Injuries

Alaska has fewer than 12,000 miles of paved roads. You cannot get to 90 percent of the state by car. So we have 16 times the aircraft per capita as the lower 48 — and more than our share of accidents and crashes.

The Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider has been ready for trial in cases involving many types of, including commercial aircraft, commuter shuttles, passenger planes, helicopters, hot air balloons and hang gliders.

We pursue damages wherever there is clear evidence of negligence:

  • Insufficient pilot attention to air speed and weather conditions
  • Taking off into power lines, wires, or other ground obstructions
  • Midair collisions, whether caused by pilot error, ground control error, or a combination of both
  • Cargo loading error
  • Mechanical error
  • Improper fueling, maintenance, or other negligence on the part of a fixed-base operator

If you have been injured, or if a family member has been injured or killed in a plane crash, and negligence played a role in the crash, you may be entitled to compensation. Call us at 907-331-3549 to schedule a no-charge, no obligation case evaluation — or email us a description of the crash.
