About the Book

Product liability claims based on aviation crashes are extremely complex and challenging even for the most experienced litigators. These cases require large commitments of time and resources, and demand expertise with aviation and engineering principles, coupled with a detailed legal analysis.

Building on its best-selling predecessor, this third edition updates regulatory and legislative developments over the past decade, as well as recent key decisions in aviation case law. Beginning with a description of sources of information, this practical guide tells you how to conduct a thorough investigation, research technical facts, and preserve valuable evidence. You will learn how to resolve critical choice of law questions that may determine a case's value more than facts or substantive law.

The guide includes advice from 40 experienced litigators on
" Locating top sub-specialists;
" Maximizing the effectiveness of evidence;
" Presenting opening and closing statements;
" Cross-examining witnesses; and
" Developing winning strategies.

This expanded third edition contains informative chapters which analyze cases involving all types of aircraft and involving various defendants, including manufacturers, subcontractors, airline companies, and the federal government. Top trial lawyers bring you up-to-date with the latest information on:
" Admissibility of NTSB and FAA reports in civil litigation
" Use of expert witnesses in aviation cases
" Liability for deadheading crew members
" Discovery considerations involving foreign defendants and the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act
" The doctrine of Forum Non Conveniens arising out of aviation accidents, and much more!
