Aviation Injury Lawyer Jamie R. Lebovitz Addresses Safety Concerns

Lebovitz, who has more than 20 years of experience handling airplane accidents, said.
...
The training required to operate aircraft of this type in icing conditions, however, is not adequate, Lebovitz explained.
He says the concern with this antiquated de-icing system is that it's not reliable under all conditions and could increase the amount of ice buildup on the wings and/or tail while disrupting the flow of air over the wings and inhibiting the aerodynamic lift capabilities of the aircraft. This reaction can cause a plane to lose lift and altitude, ultimately resulting in a plane crash.
American Airlines Flight 5966
In 2007, Lebovitz was part of the lead trial counsel that handled the American Airlines Flight 5966 crash, which occurred in Kirksville, Mo. The Jetstream 32 twin-engine turboprop plane, which was owned by Corporate Airlines (now RegionsAir), was on its final approach to land when it crashed, killing 13 of the 15 passengers aboard. The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the probable cause of the accident was the pilots' failure to follow established procedures and maintain a professional demeanor during the flight. Their fatigue likely contributed to their degraded performance as well. Along with his colleagues, Lebovitz was able to help expose the serious safety differences between a small, regional airline and a large, national airline. (Case No. 052-00275, Susanne Wandel, etc., et al., v. American Airlines, Inc., et al., Missouri Circuit Court, Twenty-Second Judicial Circuit)

"The public is under the misconception that when they board an airplane with the logos of major airlines they are getting the same level of care and safety as if they were flying on airplanes owned and operated by the major airlines," Lebovitz said. "Our firm has represented many families whose loved ones were victims of aviation disasters where dangerous icing conditions have been a major factor. As a result, we have been able to identify the design defects of these airplanes and the deficiencies in training pilots who find themselves confronted with icing weather conditions."
About Jamie R. Lebovitz

Jamie Lebovitz Helps Aviation Accident Victims | Nurenberg Paris

Jamie Lebovitz's ongoing efforts help improve airline passenger safety
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. 19, 2008-For the last 20 years, attorney Jamie R. Lebovitz, senior partner with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, has been bringing justice to the families of those who have perished in aviation accidents as well as to the survivors.
Having grown up with an interest in airplanes, Mr. Lebovitz handled his first aviation case in 1985, shortly after graduating from Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Since that time, he has come to understand the complexities associated with these types of cases in addition to truly understanding how those affected by aviation accidents deal with such traumatic events. He never loses sight of the fact that those who have perished in airplane crashes have left behind loved ones-spouses, children, and parents-along with countless other family members who will forever suffer unimaginable loss.
"It's important for us to hold airlines and airplane manufacturers accountable for the losses and irreparable harm they've brought on these families and to ensure that the safety of the flying public be of paramount importance now and in the future," Mr. Lebovitz explained. "One of our missions is to ensure the families we represent are taken care of through the course of investigation. It's imperative that the families we represent are provided with professional guidance and advice to bring as much emotional and financial stability to their lives as possible in the aftermath of such a disaster. . .and by bringing a civil action, we can increase the likelihood that other families will never suffer a similar loss."
Mr. Lebovitz has been involved in litigation concerning most major commercial aircraft crashes both in the United States and around the world. He has helped to bring about significant change in the way airlines do business and the way manufacturers design and produce airplanes. One case in particular-the 1994 crash of US Airways Flight 427 near Pittsburgh that killed all 132 passengers and crew members on board-brought to the forefront the design flaws with the Boeing 737's rudder system, particularly a valve in the rudder control unit that sometimes jammed. Because of its faulty rudder system, Flight 427 slammed into a wooded hillside in Beaver County just minutes before it was scheduled to land at Pittsburgh International Airport. (Case No. MDL 1040, U.S. District Court, Western District of Pennsylvania)
Another example of Mr. Lebovitz helping to bring about change and safe practices in the aviation industry involves the case of Bonita Harmon et al., v. Epps Air Service (Case No. 05CV0575, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Cleveland).

"While providing aggressive legal representation in the quest to hold those responsible for the losses of our clients, it's important we focus on making changes within the aviation industry to help prevent future accidents," Mr. Lebovitz said. "Part of our mission is to promote aviation safety and to bring about change in the industry, such as pilot training, maintenance practices, design, and manufacture of airplanes."
Mr. Lebovitz has been appointed by various State and Federal courts around the country as a member of the Lead Trial Counsel Team and the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in numerous air crash cases. In this capacity, he has coordinated the investigation and preparation of cases for trial on behalf of all claimants and litigants. Additionally, he is a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), the Ohio Association of Justice (OAJ), the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys (CATA), the Ohio State (OSBA), Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Bar Associations, and the Lawyers-Pilots Bar Association. Furthermore, he has recovered numerous multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts in cases against commercial airlines, helicopter operators, aircraft manufacturers, and the federal government.
