Small Plane Crash Case History

Our firm has decades of experience dealing with the many legal issues that arise following a small plane crash. We have handled crash litigation involving private, commercial and charter planes, including more than 100 Cessna, Piper, or Beechcraft planes. We have also handled cases involving aircraft manufactured by Bellanca, Grumman, Luscombe, Mooney, Maule, Rockwell and more. Our firm has even represented those people harmed in hot air balloon accidents. At Wisner Baum, we believe our track record speaks for itself.
