Our firm's cases have been featured on...
Our law firm has achieved record jury verdicts in private aviation accident lawsuits, including the two highest jury verdicts ever in helicopter crash trials: a $350 million verdict for a pilot killed in a Life Flight helicopter crash, and a separate $70 million verdict for a passenger killed in that same helicopter crash.
The law firm of Robb & Robb has obtained record settlements that include a $52.5 million settlement for the crash of a Twin Otter aircraft with five fatalities ($10.5 million per victim), a $38 million settlement for a young woman severely injured in a helicopter crash at the Grand Canyon (highest settlement in U.S. history for helicopter crash injury), a $27.5 million settlement on behalf of skydivers killed in a small plane crash (highest total settlement for a small plane crash), and a $26 million settlement for the wrongful deaths of a husband and wife in a North Carolina plane crash (highest aviation settlement in U.S. history for the death of a husband and wife).
Private Plane Crash lawsuits are complex and challenging. Private aircraft do not have the "black boxes" which commercial planes do. In addition, regulation and enforcement of maintenance and certification procedures are not nearly as rigorous for private aircraft.
"For nearly thirty years, our law firm's aviation focus has been on representing families in private plane crash lawsuits.
Gary C. Robb has been recognized by his peers as one of the top aviation accident lawyers in the country. He served for four years as Co-Chair of the Aviation Litigation Committee of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Litigation and is the Immediate Past Chair of the Aviation Section of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) (formerly ATLA) which is the largest organization of Plaintiffs' aviation attorneys in the world. Mr. Robb also has served as Chair of AAJ's Products Liability Section.
He has written and spoken often to attorney groups on aviation topics, having published articles in TRIAL Magazine on "How to Select and Use Aviation Experts," and "General Aviation Cases; Investigating the Case and Knowing the Law and Applicable Rules." Mr. Robb's presentation at the most recent Aviation Attorney Section at the AAJ Annual Convention was on "Damages in Aviation Cases."
We would be honored to put our specific experience in these types of cases to work for your family. At such a difficult time, it is so important to have legal counsel you can trust to handle your case with the special professional care it deserves.
