Aviation Accidents



The trial lawyers at Weidner & Associates have years of experience in litigation pertaining to aviation related accidents that result in catastrophic injury, death or property damage. We have represented clients in numerous aviation related cases in the past 40 years and are committed to fighting for our clients’ rights to recover and relief for their damages and needs. We have handled suits ranging from large commercial airlines to small bush planes. Although our focus is on Alaska, we represent clients throughout the United States. We have also successfully prosecuted lawsuits involving international aviation and the Hague Convention.

There are two categories of civil aviation: general aviation and scheduled air transport. The latter refers to all passenger and cargo flights that operate on scheduled routes. General aviation represents all civil flights, both commercial and private. Many of the charter flight operators in Alaska operate under Federal Aviation Regulations Part 135 (FAR 135). All aviation cases are unique, but in each case, aircraft manufacturers and airline operators have liabilities.
