Aircraft Accidents

“Airplane crashes often involve one or more negligent parties and are complex to investigate and prepare. We work with a network of air accident reconstruction professionals and specialists to make sure the evidence is clearly presented in your favor.”
- Partner, Lynn Johnson

Pursuing Proper Compensation for Aviation Injuries

If a loved one in your family has been involved in an accident while flying in a commercial (common carrier) or recreational aircraft there may be several parties who should be held liable for the accident. Besides pilot error, aircraft accidents are often caused by:

  • Defective aircraft parts/equipment
  • Improper ground maintenance
  • Air traffic control errors
  • Unsafe loading

Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman is one of the Kansas City region’s prominent personal injury and wrongful death law firms. Since 1949, our attorneys have represented clients throughout Missouri, Kansas and the Midwest region to help individuals and families recover full and fair money damages after an aircraft accident involving aspects such as:

  • Commercial airplanes

  • Private airplanes

  • Helicopter crashes

  • Ground and hangar injuries

  • Weather-related crashes

Our experienced trial attorneys have received the AV rating* among peers and are recognized as Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America for our commitment to meeting our clients’ needs.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an aircraft accident, make sure you act quickly. We will give you an honest evaluation of your case. We handle all aircraft accident cases on contingency. That means we will pay the up-front cost of investigating and preparing your case for trial. You will not pay attorney fees unless we help you recover compensation for your losses.
