The law firm of Robb & Robb has obtained record settlements that include a $100 million settlement for flight nurse’s severe burn injuries in the Colorado crash of a medical helicopter, which is also the largest pretrial settlement in U.S. history for a single plaintiff in a personal injury case, 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, 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 over thirty years, our law firm's aviation focus has been on representing families in helicopter and private plane crash lawsuits.

Experience Counts and Results Matter"

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."
