Video: Don't minimize the 'personal' aspect of personal injury

Personal injury claims are often discussed in the context of success rates, financial awards and statistics.

However, this minimizes or completely disregards the fact that personal injury claims are indeed personal. They can be deeply devastating to people's lives, and it is crucial to work with attorneys who appreciate this.

Amarillo Plane Crash Kills Three

Three people have died in an Amarillo plane crash that took place on Saturday, April 29, 2017. The crash happened in early morning as an air ambulance service left the airport in Amarillo, Texas, headed for Clovis, New Mexico.

Severe Turbulence Causes Serious Injuries on Aeroflot Flight

Passengers aboard an Aeroflot flight from Moscow were left with serious injuries after their plane encountered heavy turbulence about an hour before they were scheduled to land in Bangkok on May 1.

NTSB: Disorientation Led to Fatal Plane Crash

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued its report into a fatal 2015 plane crash that killed nine people, finding that the pilot was under pressure from his company to return his passengers to a cruise ship, which led to him becoming disoriented in cloudy weather. Investigators blamed both the pilot's disorientation and the company's culture for the tragedy, which occurred on June 25, 2015.

Family Killed in Florida Plane Crash

A family, including two children, was killed in a Florida plane crash at the Williston Municipal Airport.

NTSB Issues Report on 2015 Flight for Life Helicopter Crash

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued its report regarding the 2015 Flight for Life crash of an Airbus Helicopters AS350 helicopter, which killed the pilot and seriously injured two nurses on board. After an investigation of the tragedy, the NTSB has concluded that a hydraulic issue linked to a preflight maintenance check caused the survivable crash, but the lack of a crash-resistant fuel system allowed the post-crash fire that killed the pilot.
