Manufacturers have an obligation to take reasonable care in preventing unsafe or defective products from being used by consumers. This is particularly important when it comes to aircraft. Commercial airplanes, helicopters, private jets, and all their component parts must be designed and manufactured properly for the protection of every single person on board. Even the slightest defect could cause a crash and claim dozens or even hundreds of lives.
Aviation accidents present significant complexities, but our team at Spohrer Dodd has the unique skills and experience to effectively handle these claims.

Uncovering Mechanical Problems in an Aviation Accident
After a helicopter or airplane accident, it can be difficult to determine whether pilot error, weather, mechanical problems, or other factors contributed to the event. Fortunately, we have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation. We will carefully evaluate physical evidence and will utilize experts in aviation, physics, mechanics, engineering, and accident reconstruction to build a clear understanding of exactly what occurred in the days, hours, minutes, and seconds leading up to the accident. If we discover that any part of the aircraft was improperly designed or had manufacturing defects, we will work to hold the manufacturer or other at-fault party accountable.
If you’re ready to seek justice after a serious aviation accident caused by a defective or dangerous product, call Spohrer Dodd at (904) 637-7721.
