While the majority of commercial aviation cases settle before a trial is conducted, we at Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman always prepare each one of our cases as if it were going to trial. We feel this has a great impact on the behavior of the defendants in settlement negotiations and trial.

Collectively, our attorneys, in their careers thus far, have conducted trials in more than 200 cases, including aviation disasters, truck accidents, pharmaceutical drug injuries and product liability.

Some clients prefer to have their case resolved before trial while others desire to see their case result in a trial. Regardless of the final outcome, we do what is in the best interests of our clients.

One of the firm's most significant aviation trials took place in Southern California and was a products liability trial against Bell Helicopter for a tail rotor failure in which we represented the families of three Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics who were killed in a rescue helicopter crash. (Our firm successfully changed aviation product liability law in an earlier Appeals Court decision on this case.) The case resolved during the third week of trial.

We co-tried an aviation case in Los Angeles in which we represented the family of a 22 year-old woman who was killed in a charter jet Gulfstream III, operated by Avjet and owned by Airborne Charter Inc., carrying 15 passengers from Los Angeles to Aspen when it crashed about 2,400 feet short of the runway. Avjet Corp., reached an $11.7-million settlement with the families of three people killed in the crash. The settlement was reached as a Los Angeles jury was about to begin the punitive phase of the trial. Our clients settled for $9.5 million after the jury awarded them compensatory damages of $8.5 million.

The following is a sampling of individual aviation case results in which our firm has achieved $1 million or more.
