The trial lawyers at Weidner & Associates have years of experience in litigation pertaining to aviation related
accidents that result in catastrophic injury, death or property damage. We have represented clients in numerous
aviation related cases in the past 40 years and are committed to fighting for our clients’ rights to recover and
relief for their damages and needs. We have handled suits ranging from large commercial airlines to small bush
planes. Although our focus is on Alaska, we represent clients throughout the United States. We have also
successfully prosecuted lawsuits involving international aviation and the Hague Convention.

There are two categories of civil aviation: general aviation and scheduled air transport. The latter refers to all
passenger and cargo flights that operate on scheduled routes. General aviation represents all civil flights, both
commercial and private. Many of the charter flight operators in Alaska operate under Federal Aviation Regulations
Part 135 (FAR 135). All aviation cases are unique, but in each case, aircraft manufacturers and airline operators
have liabilities.

Types of Aviation Cases

  • Jet and commercial aviation crashes
  • Tourist and Bush planes
  • Engine failures and defective design
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Cases involving Cessna aircraft, including the Cessna 206, Cessna 208 and Cessna Caravan
  • Pilot error
  • Both commercial and personal aircraft crashes
  • Foul weather crashes
  • Icing related crashes

If one has been involved in an aviation accident it is important to choose a lawyer that is familiar with the laws
that pertain to the aviation industry. Many accidents that result from pilot error, engine failure, equipment
failure, weather conditions or design defects, often warrant legal action. Weidner and Associates can and will help.
