Alaska Airlines Crash, California

Rose Walker was retained on behalf of the manufacturer of a failed elevator jackscrew in the litigation arising from this commercial aircraft disaster. All investigators agreed that jackscrew failure was the proximate cause of the tragedy, but our intensive early investigation demonstrated that the jackscrew failure was due to poor maintenance, not design or overhaul. Despite the best efforts of the airline and aircraft manufacturer, we extricated our client from the mass-disaster litigation without payment of any money.
