Aviation Accidents

People travel by air more frequently today than ever, whether for vacations, business, or family. With the modern security environment impacting both passengers and the airlines, there are more opportunities for something to go amiss. For example, The Cartwright Law Firm represented 29 families of the victims of the Helios Air Disaster, which involved a Cypriot Airline that crashed in Greece in 2005, killing nearly 200 people. Boeing was the primary defendant in the case and the plaintiffs alleged that a design defect in the warning system was the primary cause of the crash. Robert Cartwright, Jr. traveled to Cyprus to meet with our clients and foreign co-counsel.

The Cartwright Law Firm represented hundreds of individuals who were stranded on the tarmac in Austin, TX, on December 29, 2006, while aboard an American Airlines flight in a Class Action Lawsuit. The passengers ran out of food, drinking water, and were without access to medications for nearly 10 hours. More shockingly, the passengers were forced to endure over-flowing toilets, all while sitting within eyesight of available gates. The flight departed from San Francisco, CA, en route to Mobile, AL, but was diverted to Austin due to poor weather conditions.
