Bill Garmer was one of five attorneys selected to the trial team to represent the passengers of Comair Flight 5191, which crashed on takeoff from Lexington, Kentucky in August 2006 with tragic results. Together, they successfully represented the victims’ families and estates in this complex and high-profile case.
We take a team approach to plane crash cases. In addition to our own experienced group of lawyers, we enlist leading pilots, flight instructors, aeronautical engineers, accident reconstructionists, and other industry as the situation requires experts to scrutinize the cause of every aviation accident we handle. We fully utilize our extensive resources to establish liability, and then rely on economists, physicians, and life care planners to quantify damages.
The attorneys at Garmer & Prather have experience ranging from major commercial airline disasters to general aviation crashes, involving both pilot error and mechanical failure. We understand the complexity of our air travel system, and know that pilots and passengers rely on many people doing their jobs cautiously and skillfully to ensure the safety of air travelers. When the system fails, we can help you seek resolution of your claims. We prepare every case with trial in mind, and our attorneys have a reputation for success in the courtroom.
