We proudly serve aviation accident victims and their families

Every year, many Pittsburgh residents take to the friendly skies and travel all over the world. While traveling by airplane can be extremely convenient and enjoyable, some flights sadly result in tragedy. For people that have lost a loved one in an aviation accident, there may be more questions than answers. The attorneys at Gismondi & Associates have helped a number of families throughout Pennsylvania get through this difficult time in their lives.

Plane crashes are often severe and result in serious injuries or death. For victims and their families, this can mean lost wages, pain and suffering, and a steady stream of medical bills in the mail. Worst of all, it can mean the loss of a relationship. This is why many people decide to file a lawsuit against those who may be responsible for the accident. A lawsuit may be able to provide full and complete compensation and force those responsible to make changes to ensure others’ safety in the future.

After an accident, many victims’ families wonder what went wrong and who is to blame, if anyone. Gismondi & Associates is focused on finding out the truth. Plane crashes involve thorough investigations that may take weeks or even months to get through, especially if there are no survivors. These accidents can be caused by pilot error, poor plane design, or faulty maintenance.

Commercial air crafts may carry a flight data recorder, otherwise known as a black box, which can be extremely helpful in determining the cause of the crash. However, smaller aircrafts often don’t have that luxury. Typically, experts in the field of aviation, including pilots and mechanics, will be called to testify during a trial to help determine the circumstances surrounding the accident. Once the facts are collected and analyzed, an experienced attorney may be able to help you move forward with your case and hopefully give you the closure you deserve.
