Reviews - What do customers think about Aircraft Accident Reconstruction and Litigation?
This reference text is an invaluable tool for any attorney Sep 25, 1998
The text is designed to interface the legal discipline with the aviation expert. Aircraft accident investigation is a multidisciplinary endeavour. Attorney's very often are not initiated in the many aspects of investigation technigues and methods.
The aircraft accident investigator is not trained in the distinct differences in investigative technigue needed for courtroom rules of evidence. This text attempts ito explain the differences to relatively inexperienced investigators and attorneys.
The text is highly regarded in its field, as is evidenced by the fact that it is in its second printing. The new updated version includes chapters on system safety, and helicopter basics.
