- Dear Jim:
I want to thank you again for the work you did on our airplane crash case. We were very happy with the results but, more importantly, with the attention, care and compassion you and your staff showed us during the difficult and emotional proceedings.
- My brother was tragically killed as a result of a helicopter accident that stunned our entire family. Mr. Pokorny represented the family in what turned out to be a complicated and lengthy legal battle. His expertise as a pilot and an aviation attorney made all the difference in obtaining a favorable outcome of the case. I would highly recommend his services to others as well.
- I was a passenger in a small airplane which crashed on takeoff. As a result of the crash, I was seriously injured. I hired Mr. Pokorny and he was able to investigate the situation and ultimately determine the cause of the crash. He was able to get my case resolved and get me compensated for my injuries.
- I was a passenger in a small helicopter when suddenly it went out of control and literally fell out of the sky. We crashed into a neighborhood near a hospital. The pilot died on impact. I was lucky enough to survive, but with extensive injuries. We hired Mr. Pokorny to figure out what happened, and to get me compensated for my losses. He did both, and very capably.
Handling Aviation Cases Throughout the United States
As a commercial pilot, I know that everyone who boards a plane or helicopter relies on the good faith and diligence of everyone involved in designing, maintaining and operating an aircraft. When your trust has been betrayed, you deserve an opportunity to get answers and hold the responsible parties accountable.
I'm attorney Jim Pokorny, and I help clients throughout the United States pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims for aviation accidents caused by the negligence of others. If you've lost a loved one or have been seriously injured in an aircraft accident, don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your options.
More Than 25 Years as a Pilot and an Aviation Attorney
Pursuing an aviation accident claim effectively requires specific, in-depth knowledge of aeronautical principles, aviation law, and litigation procedures. I am an FAA licensed, instrument-rated commercial pilot. I have continuously kept my operating privileges current since 1984. I own my own plane and have focused my personal injury and wrongful death practice on aircraft accident cases for more than 25 years.
As a member of the Legal Services Panel of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and a former president of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association (LPBA), I understand the concerns of pilots and their families and have a grasp on the latest developments in aviation law.
Identifying and Vigorously Pursuing Claims
I have built a strong reputation as one of the premier aviation accident attorneys in the country, maintaining a nationwide practice in this area. Whether a family member has been killed or you have been seriously injured in a crash involving a small plane, military aircraft, commercial airliner, charter plane, air ambulance or any other aircraft, you can count on my experience and effectiveness.
I carefully analyze each accident case to determine whether it will be possible to bring a claim against an individual, a corporate entity, a government agency or any other party that may be legally responsible.
