Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous, but to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect. — Captain A. G. Lamplugh, British Aviation Insurance Group, London.
There are few fields of law more complex and detailed as aviation law. Whether the result of pilot error, unexpected weather conditions, or one of the uncountable number of things that commonly go wrong, aircraft crashes cannot be reversed and seldom end short of disastrous consequences. From improper or inadequate pre-flight preparation to material or other product failure, careless or inappropriate daredevil piloting to the simplest of mistakes, such as not providing enough fuel for a chosen flight plan, errors in flight generally are unforgiving.
Mr. Orlando brings to the table his own experience and training in pre-flight safety inspections and many hours of flight time in single engine aircraft. He makes use of his personal piloting experience to command a basic understanding of the principles of flight and operation of several types of aircraft. This understanding enables him to choose the best direction for steering air crash litigation toward optimizing awards for firm clients.
The ORLANDO Firm, P.C. combines a three-pronged approach to handling severe injury or death cases resulting from instances involving the crash of commercial aircraft, private planes and helicopters. This three-pronged approach permits and assists The ORLANDO Firm, P.C. to navigate quickly and efficiently to gain control over the complex issues that arise when an air disaster strikes.
- First, our lawyers and investigators immediately conduct extensive investigation to preserve and document data from the actual wreckage; interview all ground and traffic control witnesses; collect radar, weather and aircraft data; identify all potentially culpable parties; and evaluate jurisdictional issues. The firm’s quick response permits us to expedite (while evidence remains fresh) the retention of the appropriate expert witnesses to conduct testing and issue opinions in such esoteric fields as hydraulics, electronics, navigation, aerodynamic engineering, accident reconstruction and material analysis. These witnesses are almost always necessary in airline crash disaster investigation.
- Secondly, the firm takes advantage of the comprehensive analysis always generated by the National Transportation Safety Board to bolster our independent findings.
- Finally, The ORLANDO Firm, P.C. will secure the cooperation of the proper investigators and all information accumulated by way of the far-reaching authority of the Federal Aviation Administration.
