COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Schwarz & Schwarz has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of these and other airline workers.
With decades of experience representing clients in these cases, the attorneys at Schwarz & Schwarz successfully litigate many cases involving commercial vehicle accidents on the ramp.
Schwarz & Schwarz began representing airline workers more than two decades ago when several airline fleet service workers sustained amputations and crush injuries to their hands while hooking airline baggage carts to airline baggage tugs. Schwarz & Schwarz’s thorough investigation of the airline equipment revealed that repetitive ride-through injuries of the hand were caused by an unsafe baggage cart design. This resulted in substantial financial recoveries for airline workers in Philadelphia and across the United States.
Through our continued involvement and focus on airline worker safety, Schwarz & Schwarz has identified additional dangerous, defective, and unsafe airline equipment, contractors, and conditions – created by third-parties – that place workers at an increased risk for injury. These dangerous and defective conditions include unsafe baggage carts, belt loaders, belt systems, K loaders, jetways, loading docks, and other types of equipment, as well as unsafe contractors and vendors, found at airports across the United States.
