So you’ve been contacted by a prospective client in an aviation accident. Do you undertake representation? The answer as to whether or not you and your firm can represent that client may not be as cut and dry as it seems. Representing parties injured in aviation accidents is a unique area of the law, and many attorneys do not recognize the distinctive issues such representation presents, or do so far too late in the course of representation.  

 

In this course, Mike Miska, a Philadelphia-based aviation attorney from the Wolk Law Firm, discusses the important ethical considerations unique to aviation cases that confront attorneys from the initial retainer and that arise in the course of litigation.  These topics include solicitation restrictions, conflicts in small aircraft crashes between occupants, the interplay of case development with the National Transportation Safety Board, cost considerations, and other related concerns. 

 

Learning Objectives:

I.      Understand the unique field of ethical conflicts that confront the lawyer in developing an aviation case

II.     Identify means of avoiding the pitfalls that conflict a lawyer from representation 

III.    Set parameters for the scope of representation and recognize when to say yes, and when to refer to a different attorney

IV.    Recognize the work required for competent development and client representation
