Miami Aviation Accident Attorney Explains Experience Handling Crash Landing Cases
While airline travel is much less risky than other forms of transportation, such as driving, recent years have seen a surprising number of aviation accidents involving crash landings. The law firm of Colson Hicks Eidson has been at the forefront of aviation litigation in the US and internationally. In this video, Miami plane crash attorney Curtis Miner details three recent crash landing cases.
Fortunately, for all of us, commercial aviation in the United States is an exceedingly safe method of travel. They say that the most dangerous part of any trip you take by plane is the cab ride or car ride to the airport, and statistically, that’s true. However, in the past several years we’ve seen a surprising number of crash landing type accidents that involved major airlines either flying to or from the United States. Let me give you three examples of major crash landing cases that we’ve been involved in recently. 2009, American Airlines flight from Miami to Kingston that overshot the runway and broke into three pieces off the end of the runway. 2010, Caribbean Airlines flight from New York’s JFK airport to Georgetown, Guyana. Same thing, overshot the runway and broke into two pieces off the end of the runway. And in 2013, the Asiana flight that crash-landed on its approach into San Francisco International Airport.
