Product or Manufacturing Lawsuits due to Defects in Airplanes and Helicopters

Aircraft manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure both the design and the individual components on an aircraft meet safety regulations. When an aviation injury or fatality accident occurs, this is one of the considerations in determining why the aircraft crashed or created a hazardous situation. Product or manufacturing lawsuits are one of the options for victims to receive compensation for losses when an aviation accident causes injuries or deaths.

The design of an aircraft is carefully examined by both the manufacturer and regulatory agencies. It must be able to withstand the expected elements, weights and other factors for many years of service. There are many airplanes and helicopters in service that are twenty or more years old. Even with stringent testing and evaluation of design, it is possible for a design problem to be overlooked that can result in risks for aviation accidents. When this occurs, the manufacturer can be held liable for their mistake if lives are lost or injuries occur.

Component Defects on Aircrafts

Even if the design is one that is safe and may have been used extensively, manufacturing issues can still occur. Each component of an aircraft has a function and must be manufactured and installed to exact specifications to perform as intended. A piece of a rotor assembly on a helicopter that is not properly installed or an engine component in a plane that is not made correctly can lead to malfunctions that cause fires on board the aircraft or even a deadly crash.

There are thousands of components that impact the safety of an aircraft, as it only takes one to be defective to cause a serious accident. If a defective aircraft causes injury to you or a loved one, you need a legal team that has the aviation experience to represent you in an aviation manufacturing defect lawsuit. Contact Conley Griggs Partin LLP today if you believe a manufacturing defect or design error caused an aircraft accident that injured you or took a loved one’s life.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
