Aviation and Aerospace

Aviation and aerospace companies need reliable and experienced defense counsel when confronted with high stakes products liability lawsuits. Led by Nix Daniel (a licensed pilot) and Tom Gonzalez (a former helicopter pilot in the United States Navy), Beggs & Lane’s aviation and aerospace practice combines extensive civil litigation experience with a keen understanding of the aviation industry and the laws governing it. Our recent aviation litigation experience includes the following:

  • Obtained summary judgment for aircraft manufacturer in product liability action arising out of an in-flight electrical fire resulting in a fatal crash into a Sanford, Florida neighborhood.
