Aviation Disasters

transportation_accidents

Modern society depends on collective transport, especially for long distances and travel abroad.  Globalized transportation has revealed the critical importance of compliance with safety standards.  Unfortunately, standards are not always maintained.  Whether it is local or transnational, accidents still occur.  When they happen, victims and loved ones deserve legal representation from compassionate professionals with accredited experience.

Even domestic transport accidents can hide complex international implications.  Complex jurisdictional issues and conflicts of law are common elements that need to be dealt with when handling these types of cases.  A service provider, a product manufacturer,and even direct or indirect government involvement, can benefit or prejudice the rights of the affected persons if all legal issues are not addressed properly.

The Global Justice Network has a strong tradition of commitment to representing the interests of consumers harmed through negligence or product failures arising from use of commercial, privately owned, or governmentally owned or operated transport.  Members of our network are recognized as being among the most experienced aviation and maritime accident lawyers in the world.  We represent victims of transport disasters, not the carrier companies, and have represented the rights of victims and their families in air and marine disasters occurring globally.

Our members have collectively represented claimants from almost every major air disaster in recent history and have successfully recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation.  Below is a list of some of the aviation disasters in which our members have represented or continue to represent victims and their families.
