Aviation Injuries—Nationwide and International

Advances in pilot training and new safety features in aircraft during the last twenty years have made many aircraft crashes more survivable. Unfortunately, the circumstances of such crashes can still leave survivors (and people on the ground) with life-changing injuries.

Personal injury attorney John D. McKay is dedicated to standing up for the rights of aviation injury victims and helping them get compensation. He brings more than 25 years of experience to cases involving negligence on the part of airlines, pilots, air traffic control, aircraft manufacturers and other parties. His experience not only as an attorney, but also as a licensed commercial pilot, means he is skilled at determining who was responsible and holding that party accountable for the harm caused to the victim.

Handling All Airplane-Related Personal Injury Claims

Not all cases involve airplane crashes. Many of the claims John handles as a lawyer involve other injuries suffered on airplanes or in airports. Examples include:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents and trip-and-fall accidents
  • Wheelchair handling negligence injuries
  • Overhead bin discharge injuries
  • Service cart collision injuries
  • Coffee spill and hot liquid spill injuries
  • Foreign object in food injuries
  • Airline food poisoning
  • Food allergy injuries
  • Cabin air contamination injuries
  • Cabin air pressurization and failure to pressurize injuries
  • Sharp object in seat back pocket injuries
  • Broken seat injuries
  • Turbulence injuries
  • Hard landing injuries
  • Assault and sexual assault
  • Delayed medical treatment

Most personal injury claims are resolved with a settlement. However, an attorney must always be prepared to go to trial in the event that the insurance company is unwilling to provide fair compensation. Insurance companies understand when their opponents are not prepared for trial and they will take advantage of this fact. John has built an impressive trial record, so insurance companies are aware of his ability to successfully argue in front of a judge and jury, increasing the likelihood of a fair settlement.
