Partners Keith Barrett and Peter Williams specialise in aircraft and aviation claims and represent people involved in plane crashes. We also act for families whose relatives have died in an aviation accident.
Most recently, Keith acted for the family of Gordon Emin, killed with four others in an RAF helicopter accident in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2015. The coroner issued a Preventing Further Deaths warning to the MOD, voicing concern over unsatisfactory management of radio communications and clearance of the landing site which was also used as a football pitch.
Keith also achieved settlement for a family with two young children injured when a Jet Airways plane crashed landed in Goa in 2017.
Previously, the team represented passengers and crew injured when a British Midland flight travelling from Belfast to Heathrow crashed into an embankment of the M1 in Kegworth, Leicestershire.
