Corporate Jet Accidents
Corporate and business jet travel have long been the alternative of choice for those who can afford it. The global marketplace has made business jet travel more popular than ever as more and more companies are operating their own planes or chartering others. In just the past 14 years, the number of corporate and business jet flights in the United States has increased by more than 30%. Unfortunately, the number and severity of accidents involving turbine-powered business aircraft has also increased. It is said that the fatal accident rate of corporate aviation is almost 2.5 times greater than the major airlines. The fatal accident rate for air taxis or charters is more than 50 times higher than that of the commercial airlines. The aviation attorneys at Nolan Law Group find these statistics to be unacceptable and believe that companies who own and/or operate corporate and business aircraft have the same responsibility for safety of their passengers and crew as the commercial airlines have.
Nolan Law Group is currently evaluating Corporate and Business Accident cases involving:
