Experienced aircraft accident lawyers understand that some of the most challenging litigation problems come up in cases involving small plane crashes. Federal legislation such as the General Aviation Revitalization Act immunizes aircraft manufacturers from products liability claimsrelated to planes more than 18 years old — and most planes in service are older than that.

Insurance coverage can be a problem as well. In many cases, the pilot carries more liability insurance on his or her own car than he or she did on the airplane or helicopter that crashed. In fact, general aviation pilots might carry no liability insurance at all. Similarly aircraft mechanics may also carry little or no insurance. To learn how you can pursue and recover damages for injuries or fatalities in a small plane crash despite these obstacles, contact an experienced attorney at McCallum and Associates, PLLC.


Our goal in accidents involving small planes or private aircraft is to recover the maximum amount possible from any defendant who can be held to account in a given case. Many accidents have multiple causes, and our practical ability to place legal responsibility among at-fault defendants can significantly improve our client's chances of full financial compensation.
