Aviation Expert Witness

We have recently concluded a major aviation expert consultancy project instructed by DWF LLP, one of the UK's largest legal firms, in support of a landmark liability case surrounding a fatal helicopter accident in Peru.

DWF LLP, acting on behalf of Chubb Insurance, instructed ARL to assist with the identification and management of suitable aviation expert witnesses with specific backgrounds in aviation regulation, helicopter operations and flying in extreme or mountainous terrain. ARL also provided extensive, highly specialised aviation expertise and research to DWF during preparation for the case, ranging from analysis of flight and altitude profiles to research into safety statistics and alternative methods of transport.

ARL has conducted a number of aviation expert witness and research projects in support of key aerospace and aviation related legal cases.

On another case, we were engaged by DWF to produce a detailed research project into the cabin crew benefits schemes of a number of international airlines. ARL provided a comprehensive report with detailed financial estimates, in order to support an on-going legal case.
