While airplane and railroad crashes are not among the most common types of accidents, when they do occur, the results can be devastating, and even deadly. If your family has been affected by one of these tragedies, you need to seek immediate legal counsel in order to secure compensation for your injuries or loss of a family member. However, all lawyers are not equally equipped to address these complex legal claims. Although there are many personal injury attorneys who can handle a car or truck accident case, you need a lawyer who has actual experience with train or aircraft accidents.
We Have Represented Plaintiffs In Some Of The Largest Plane And Train Disasters In Nevada
At Bradley, Drendel & Jeanney, our lawyers have significant and meaningful experience in air and rail accident litigation. We acted as co-lead counsel for a large number of plaintiffs in the Reno Air Races crash disaster of December 2011. Using an innovative arbitration program, the resulting settlement for the victims was in excess of $10 million. Our law firm also was co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in the Amtrak railroad crash that occurred outside of Reno in 2011.
While these cases made the headlines, many others don't. However, we are just as committed to all of our clients regardless of whether their accidents are high-profile or not. Our lawyers believe that when individuals are injured due to the negligence of another, they are entitled to justice and compensation for their injuries.
Regardless Of The Type Of Negligence, We Can Help You Secure Compensation
Our legal capabilities extend to accidents involving any type of aircraft, including single engines, twin engines, commercial planes and helicopters. We also address any type of railway accident, whether it involves a commuter train or cargo train; a train derailment; or a train/car railroad crossing accident.
After your air or rail crash accident, our lawyers can help establish liability by proving a range of negligence claims, such as:
- Negligent maintenance of the aircraft, train or tracks
- Staff not following proper safety procedures
- Unfit pilot or train operator
- Improper operation of an aircraft in adverse weather conditions
- Operating an aircraft or train while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Design defect in the plane, train or tracks
- Faulty railway signals
