Compassionate Virginia Injury Attorney Represents Victims of Aviation Accidents

Skilled lawyer seeks full compensation for people in the Alexandria area hurt or killed in plane crashes

Every year, millions of people fly on airplanes and helicopters in the United States. While the odds of an aviation accident are very small compared to those in motor vehicle travel, several thousand passengers and crew are injured every year, and dozens are killed, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. As a personal injury lawyer at Michael J. Sgarlat Attorney at Law, I have pursued justice for aviation accident victims and their families for many years, seeking full damages for clients in the Alexandria area and throughout Virginia, and will provide the trusted representation your case deserves.

Trusted aviation accident attorney draws on extensive resources

When injuries result from an accident on an aircraft or in an airport, the companies that insure the responsible parties immediately put their team of attorneys to work to limit their liability. That is why if you are injured in an aviation accident, it is essential that you find an experienced aviation accident attorney to preserve evidence, obtain or safeguard flight and maintenance records, interview witnesses, and get to the root cause of the accident. I have the resources and knowledge to protect my clients.

I understand the aviation industry and the requirements for proving liability. I regularly consult with a team of engineering, accident reconstruction, aviation and medical experts to assist with these complex cases.

Responsive advocate handles a range of accident claims

At Michael J. Sgarlat Attorney at Law, as an experienced aviation accident attorney, I use my skills as a negotiator and proven ability as a litigator to press for the damages you or a loved one deserves for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. My firm handles claims for aviation accidents that involve

  • Commercial airlines
  • Charter or corporate aircraft
  • Military contractor aircraft
  • Small planes
  • Helicopters

I understand the complex nature of aviation accident claims and will undertake a thorough investigation, aided by experts in the field, to determine the cause of the crash that injured you or killed a family member. These crashes can be caused by:

  • Other aircraft
