Plane & Helicopter Crash Investigations Are Complex

It takes a sophisticated investigation to determine what caused a plane crash. There are no skid marks, and the evidence that is available is often difficult to interpret. At our law firm, our plane crash investigation and litigation team is led by an attorney who is a licensed pilot — Morry Cole.

After a plane crash, the evidence needs to be preserved and secured as quickly as possible. Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis assures the plane crash scene is preserved, and that the evidence has not been spoiled.

Our lawyers help the victims, and the families affected by the result of Aviation Accidents.

In an aviation accident, a civil lawsuit can use factual statements from a National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) investigation. However, the opinions of the NTSB are inadmissible in court. This is one of many reasons why it is so important to have a lawyer and a law firm like Gray Ritter Graham with aviation accident investigation experience.

Many factors can contribute to a plane crash.

There are technical and legal considerations at every point in a plane crash investigation. The crash scene evidence has to be examined expertly and carefully to determine what happened. The electronic data recorder (black box) needs to be found and evidence downloaded.


A careful investigation is essential to effective litigation.

In a helicopter accident, small plane crash, military aircraft crash, charter plane crash or commercial airliner crash, evidence preservation and thorough investigation are critical to bringing a successful lawsuit against the liable parties.
