Aviation Expert Witnesses: Case Studies

Air Show Fatality: Plaintiff

Following a fatal incident at an air show, GMR was asked to evaluate the probable causes of the accident and identify areas of liability. As a result of reviewing all of the available evidence, including the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) accident report and video footage, it was possible to carry out a detailed risk analysis of the event. As a result of the expert evidence, the plaintiff / claimant was awarded significant damages.

Airliner Turbulence Injury: Defendant

GMR was retained by attorneys representing one of the major US airlines in a case involving a passenger injured during turbulence on a commercial flight. Following an extensive review of the circumstances surrounding the incident, written evidence was submitted, followed by a deposition with oral testimony. Key aspects of the case included meteorological data analysis, flight crew and cabin service protocols and procedures for the safety of passengers. As a result of the evidence submitted the damages were significantly reduced.

Helicopter Fatalities: Defendant

Following a fatal helicopter accident, GMR was asked to provide an expert opinion on whether the pilot was in breach of certain air navigation orders by electing to fly in adverse weather conditions. GMR reviewed the AAIB report, meteorological data for the day in question and the pilot’s licenses, qualifications and experience. Having evaluated the evidence, it was our expert’s opinion that the pilot was not flying in contravention of any regulations.

Helicopter Fatality Whilst Working Abroad: Claimant

GMR were instructed by the aviation department of a leading UK law firm following the death of an executive whilst on a business trip abroad.

Expert opinion was required regarding the risk assessment practices amongst employers proposing to send their employees to travel and work abroad.

Following a High Court trial, where GMR provided written and oral testimony, the employer was found responsible for the fatality and in breach of their duty of care to their employee.
