Accidents involving commercial or private aircraft are often catastrophic. Improper maintenance, air traffic control errors, aircraft design defects and pilot errors can all lead to tragic disasters, which often result in devastating nervous system injuries or loss of life.
The practice of aviation law is extremely challenging and complex. Many cases not only involve state and federal laws but are also sometimes governed by admiralty law and federal aviation regulations. Experience with these various sources of authority is key to success. A comprehensive understanding of aircraft operation, engineering, physics and mechanics is also crucial.
