One of our firm’s attorney founders and a preeminent aviation litigator, Michael Krzak, is slated to speak at the upcoming National Institute on Aviation Litigation on June 9. The conference, which was originally to take place in person in Chicago, will now be a virtual event. Anyone interested in attending the institute can register online. Registration is open until June 8 at 5 p.m. (Eastern).
Among the topics that will be discussed at this year’s institute include:
- Pilot shortages as it relates to the implementation of the 1500 hour rule
- The intersection of aviation incidents and the criminal justice system
- In-flight liability concerns, including intoxicated passengers, improperly stowed baggage, etc.
- The ins and outs of the Montreal Convention
- Future product liability lawsuit filings in light of the Sikkellee Saga
- An analysis of emergent litigiousness associated with the COVID-19 pandemic
Time at this one-day institute will also be dedicated to an in-depth discussion of aviation ethics. Attorney attendees will qualify for 7.5 hours of continuing education credit toward their yearly minimum requirements.
Mr. Krzak has long attended this institute, which continues to provide him and his fellow aviation litigators with an opportunity to connect and collaborate over nuances in this niche area of the law. Mr. Krzak’s regular attendance at this institute and emphasis on this practice area have been instrumental in his election as vice-chair and Chair of both the Chicago Bar Association Aviation Law Committee and the American Association for Justice Aviation Law Committee. He held both these roles for several years before assuming his current role as Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s National Institute on Aviation Litigation.
Mr. Krzak and his fellow attorneys at Schweickert Ganassin Krzak Rundio, LLP have more than two decades of experience advocating for aviation accident victims’ rights here in North Central Illinois and across the country. We’d be more than happy to schedule a no-risk consultation with you to learn more about your aviation-related accident and advise you of any rights you may have to compensation in your case.
