Whether you are facing an FAA enforcement action, you sustain injuries (physical, psychological, and/or emotional), or lose a loved one in a plane or helicopter crash, it is important to contact an Aviation Attorney for advising and representation, as quickly as possible. Let Justin Drach’s 20 years of pilot experience that includes over 10 years in the United States Navy flying the S-3B Viking and F/A-18C Hornet work for you. Justin received certification by the Navy as an Aviation Safety Officer, is a Certified Flight Instructor, and is an experienced jet warbird pilot. We can assist the parties affected by:

Investigating the crash, including its cause(s)

Documenting each individuals injuries and losses

Navigating details of complex state, federal and even international laws

Negotiation and navigating the litigation on behalf of the parties rights

Ensuring the strongest possible vantage points from which to make a claim for compensation

We document and map out strategies to argue the whole picture of liability issues surrounding serious and catastrophic injuries. We work with investigators to determine the accident’s cause(s), identify the responsible parties, and begin the legal process towards holding the various companies involved as accountable for the issues of liability. Some common causes of airplane and helicopter accidents include:

-Airport safety issues

-Air Traffic Control negligence

-Defective equipment

-Maintenance issues


-Pilot or airline negligence

-Runway accidents

-Dangerous weather conditions

We have the aviation experience and negotiation skills to handle cases against airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers, pilots, insurers and a broad range of other defendants.

Insurance defense attorneys often fight aviation crash cases aggressively, either denying liability or attempting to settle cases at a fraction of their potential value. We know how to prove injured clients’ real damages and fight effectively for the highest level of compensation.
