Esmail Soltani ID’d as Pilot Killed in Upland Plane Crash


Palos Verdes, California (December 17, 2019) – Esmail Soltani, 49, has been identified as the pilot who was killed in a plane crash in Palos Verdes early last month.

According to a local news source, the single-engine plane took off from Torrance Municipal Airport enroute to Cable Airport in Upland when it crashed into a home.

A witness said the plane’s engine stalled and crashed into a home. A father and his 22-month-old son were inside the house at the time of the accident.

The pilot, who was the only occupant of the plane, was killed in the accident.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the accident.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
