Houston Airplane Accident Attorney
Representing Victims of Commercial Plane Accidents
On November 12, 2001, the American Airlines Airbus A300-600 jet left John F. Kennedy Airport bound for Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, but crashed leaving New York in the Queens neighborhood of Belle Harbor at 9:17 a.m. EST. All 260 people on board were killed, including five infants sitting on their parents' laps. Five people on the ground were also killed, making it one of the deadliest crashes to ever take place on American soil.
Our team of personal injury lawyers at Fleming | Nolen | Jez, L.L.P. represented five of the families of the 260 passengers killed on American Airlines flight 587. Our team was able to establish negligence against the manufacturer of the aircraft and American Airlines in the crash of flight 587. This resulted in a favorable settlement for our clients.
