$22.9 Million Verdict Upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court
The hard work of our aviation lawyers over the years has contributed to the safety of air travel by exposing and removing hazards and unsafe practices. Our success has also resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients. One example of that is the Rhodes, et al. v. United Technologies, Inc. case that involved the crash of a Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter on landing at Wiesbaden Army Airfield in Germany. The firm’s aircraft accident investigation disclosed an unrecognized design defect that led to a $22.9 million-dollar jury verdict on behalf of injured and deceased Army personnel and their families. This verdict was upheld on appeal by the U.S. Supreme Court.
