Injured In An Aviation Accident? Call 808-528-4000!

Flight is part of the daily reality here in the Hawaiian Islands. While many airlines uphold standards of keeping their planes in good repair and hiring experienced pilots, some airplane owners do not know or follow the rules of flight safety. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a plane crash, you have the right to sue for compensation to cover the damage done to you.

At Turbin Chu Heidt Attorneys at Law, our Honolulu personal injury attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, and our contingent fees mean that we do not charge any legal fees unless our clients recover financial damages. We have been successful with several aviation cases, including one where an individual was injured when a piece of metal from a plane fell off and hit him as it was flying overhead.
