Commercial airline accidents, private charter jets, personal planes and helicopters; all aviation accidents can result in significant injuries or cause wrongful death. For the victims and families of such accidents, it can be difficult to understand what happened, who is at fault, and whether the accident could have been prevented. At Rush & Gransee, L.C., we understand the difficulties faced by the victims and families of aviation accidents and will seek to uncover the cause of the accident and pursue claims against every responsible party.
We have an of-counsel attorney on staff: Vick Putman, a board-certified personal injury lawyer who is also a commercial pilot. Mr. Putman owns his own plane, holds a pilot's license, and is both instrument rated and qualified for both single- and multi-engine planes . Mr. Putman gives our firm a unique qualification to investigate and handle plane accidents.
Immediately after an airplane accident, numerous parties will make the accident scene to start an investigation. The FAA will begin an investigation if the plane was under its control which often isn't the case with small private planes. The airframe manufacturer and the engine manufacturer will often investigate the scene. The fuel provider will also be involved in the investigation. It is important that the family of the passengers in plane accidents have someone represent their interest.
