Aviation Law Experts
It takes specialized knowledge of the aviation industry and an understanding of aircraft mechanics and design to successfully litigate a complex aviation case. The fact is, most aviation "accidents" are no accident at all. However, in order to prove aviation negligence or aircraft defect, a probable cause theory must be developed and painstakingly substantiated based on past accidents, mechanical knowledge, and actual aircraft piloting experience.
Aviation litigation requires an in-depth awareness of FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) procedures, policies and other government regulations controlling the aviation industry.
In order to win substantial settlements from airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and aviation insurers - all entities with vast corporate resources - a law firm must be willing to make a comparable investment in time and money. The Wolk Law Firm is willing to make that investment.
Time is needed for the extensive research and discovery necessary to prepare a case; funds must be available to hire expert witnesses and create complex demonstrative evidence, including wind tunnel and flight testing to investigate and validate accident analysis.
And perhaps most importantly, a firm must invest in the careers of attorneys attuned to the idiosyncratic nuances of aviation litigation.
The Wolk Law Firm's depth of experience, brings pressure to bear on aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and aviation insurers. During the past decade, Arthur Alan Wolk has generated verdicts and settlements in excess of $750 million, obtaining and holding, on appeal, some of the largest verdicts in every type of aviation accident claim. The firm has won hundreds of millions of dollars in punitive damage awards to punish some aerospace manufacturers for failing to correct safety related aircraft defects.
