“Our clients have undergone the pain, stress, and trauma of a significant tragedy. At Keith Williams Law Group, our mission is to help our clients through the difficult aftermath and bring them justice from those responsible.”
The crash of a commercial airliner is one the most devastating and horrific tragedies in our modern world. The attorneys with Keith Williams Law Group are experienced in helping the surviving loved ones and others touched by these tragic situations in a compassionate and understanding way. This personal attention under tragic circumstances stems, in part, from person experience, as the founder of the group, Keith Williams, became highly involved in this specialized area of the law after losing a very near and dear friend in a commercial aviation disaster.
Investigating and determining the causes of a commercial airline crash is a detailed, technical, and time-intensive process involving the National Transportation Safety Board, the Federal Aviation Administration, and independent investigators working on behalf of the various affected groups, including the victims, their families, the airlines, and the aircraft manufacturers. Airlines and other major corporations that are involved have strong, well-funded defense teams, and the victims and their families must battle these forces when they file a lawsuit as a result of a crash. As a result, commercial aviation cases are very expensive to litigate, and a plaintiff’s firm should have the resources to take the case through trial and appeal, if necessary. After a commercial aviation disaster, our aviation lawyers are fully prepared to conduct the most thorough investigation possible and to litigate the case as far as necessary to ensure that the victims and their families are able to recover for their losses. Following a commercial airline crash, families may be asked by the airline’s representatives to provide personal information about the deceased, their occupation, earnings, and who their dependents were. Not only is this a difficult thing for families to have to deal with in the time after such a disaster, but we strongly advise that the next of kin not respond to any such inquiries without first obtaining legal advice. Not only does legal representation usually help take the burden of having to deal with these issues off the family’s shoulders, it also helps protect the legal rights of the victims/families that might be impacted by such responses.
