Irwin Mitchell has helped many clients to claim compensation after business jet accidents and regional plane crashes around the world.  These accidents can range from crashes of modern twin jet aircraft carrying executives or wealthy individuals to crashes of aging twin turboprop aeroplanes chartered to fly fare-paying passengers who have booked their tickets through a virtual airline or agent.

These cases can be very challenging both technically and legally however our experienced team has the necessary expertise to help you make a successful claim.

Understanding business/regional jet accidents

In certain countries it can take several years before an accident report is published, meaning that the families and victims are often left to deal with long term speculation as to whether the accident was caused by poor operator procedures, pilot error, maintenance error or a fault with the aircraft or one of its parts.

Unlike airliners, these passenger aircraft do not always have flight data (or “black-box”) recorders, meaning that there is far less, or sometimes no real-time data to assist in finding out what caused the jet accident.

The Irwin Mitchell Aviation Law team is able to identify credible theories as to the cause of the accident which is of great benefit to the families and in determining where the claim should be made and who to make it against. 

The international dimension and complexities of air travel can make this a complicated area of law, however we have an unrivalled track record in achieving compensation for victims and families and we can guide you on the best way to manage your claim.

For entrepreneurs and executives injured in jet accidents involving private aircraft, determining the true value of their claim can be difficult. We have acted for many such clients and have the experience and expertise needed to make sure that any compensation settlement reflects the true worth of the injured party.
