Aviation litigation involves a wide variety of incidents. It can be something as tragic as an airplane crash where family members can be devastated by the loss of someone they love and suffer serious and longstanding economic losses. Or it could be something where someone is injured at an airport perhaps walking through a terminal, maybe you're injured on an aircraft itself either boarding through a jet bridge, perhaps you're sitting on an airplane during turbulence and suffer an injury, an incident can occur where luggage falls from an overhead bin or perhaps you're mistreated by a crew member or another passenger.
My name is Steve Sandler and I'm an attorney with Woodruff Johnson and Evans. In addition, I'm a certificated pilot. I also teach in aviation law course here in the city of Chicago. It's important if you have an aviation related matter that you discuss it with an experienced aviation attorney. It's necessary for that attorney to understand who the responsible parties can be in those tragic situations involving a crash. It's necessary for the attorney to explore and learn who the pilot of the aircraft was, who's responsible for aircraft maintenance, who owned the aircraft. These are matters that need an attorney's attention and experience to understand. These are the types of cases that I handle and have handled for many years. I'm experienced in this area and I can help you explore these types of cases and see that you are properly compensated for any type of injury you or a family member have suffered.
