Aviation Expert Witnesses
Aviation is a large and technically complex industry where accidents and disputes can lead to expensive litigation that crosses countries and legal systems. Such situations cannot be resolved without the involvement of aviation specialists. Their qualifications cross the fields of aviation technology, commercial aviation, flight aviation, flight regulations/laws, training and safety rules.
Given the complexity of an airplane and air travel, multiple experts are typically used when a problem arises. Only together can they provide a full assessment of a situation.
Another level of complexity is that this industry belongs to the global public transport industry. These additional rules can change per country or region.
Aviation litigation may also address insurance, investment and other areas of commercial law.
Given the wide variety of areas that can lead to disputes in aviation it is almost impossible to launch a credible investigation without aviation experts who can help determine what happened and who is responsible.
