Representation and assistance for victims of plane crashes, maritime disasters, and land transportation accidents
With over 20 years’ experience, we have represented more than 3,500 victims (or their family members) of 35 plane crashes in recent years. From our offices in Madrid and Bordeaux, and with the cooperation of an international network of partners, we develop the best global strategy for these particularly complex litigation proceedings, which always include an international component often overlooked by those whose expertise lies elsewhere.
Our area of practice likewise extends to victims of other types of public transport accidents, such as maritime disasters and train crashes.
We also have experience in representing the victims of powerful pharmaceutical companies that have sold defective products, putting people’s health and lives at risk, as well as the victims of medical malpractice.
Only a specialized law firm that is fully conversant with International Codes and Regulations and how big corporations operate is capable of representing victims the way they deserve.
