According to the National Transportation Safety Board, 1,500 aviation accidents occurred in the US alone in 2010. 97% of the fatalities that resulted from those accidents occurred in general aviation, as opposed to scheduled commercial airline flights.
On a global scale, aviation accidents continue to be a problem. A few years ago, a plane accident occurred off the coast of Greece. The plane was carrying 121 people when it crashed and left no survivors. At trial, OPO Law succeeded in making known the cause of the accident. View the video below, and hear Senior Partner Greg Owen discuss the case in further detail:
The confidential settlement obtained in the high seven figures helped the families of plane crash victims move forward, knowing that justice was served.
