Aviation Accidents

Gulf Coast Lawyers for Victims of Helicopter and Plane Accidents

Doyle Raizner is focused on strong advocacy for people harmed by aviation accidents throughout the Houston area, along the Gulf Coast and internationally. Our attorneys have extensive experience in maritime law and Jones act claims, including those involving all types of workers in the oil and gas exploration industry, and we are also well equipped to deal with the legal aftermath of a helicopter or plane crash. We frequently collaborate with other lawyers and firms in the U.S., U.K., and elsewhere throughout the world.

If you have been injured in a work-related or other aviation accident, hurt by turbulence in flight, or are grieving a loved one killed in a tragic crash, please contact us for a case evaluation and serious representation if you have a valid claim.

We have the trial and negotiating skills to handle cases against aviation operators as well as aircraft and equipment manufacturers arising from events including:

Thorough Investigation and Strategic Case-Building for Monetary Compensation

Offshore helicopter crashes and other aviation accidents can be the result of faulty component parts or inadequate maintenance, failures to warn pilots or passengers of inclement weather turbulence, airframe structural failures, poor crew training, outdated or incorrect manuals, or human error. In many cases, a thorough investigation reveals a combination of different causes. We have the knowledge and skill to represent survivors and grieving families, or to serve as co-counsel in cases involving:

  • An international airline disaster or passenger mishap causing serious injury
  • Either a rotary-wing (helicopter) or fixed-wing aircraft
  • A military aviation mishap involving contractor negligence
  • A commercial or charter flight accident involving U.S., U.K., or other European citizens

Our attorneys enlist aviation experts as necessary to investigate each case and pin down causes and liable parties. We also document the full extent of the injuries and other damages and losses you have suffered. In wrongful death cases, this can include the loss of companionship and carefully calculated long-term financial loss.
