Airplane/Helicopter Crashes

Air travel is generally considered safe and although commercial jet accidents are rare, when they do occur the damage is catastrophic. Conditions on aircrafts and in airports also contribute to this increase in preventable injuries and accidents.

 

Aviation law covers accidents and injuries from:

 

  • Major air carriers
  • Small private planes
  • Large business jets
  • Helicopters
  • Hang Gliders
  • Tour or charter flights
  • Medical helicopters and airplanes
  • Pleasure and hobby crafts

 

Aviation cases are guided by complex laws and regulations requiring an experienced and highly skilled attorney. There are many factors involved in airplane crashes, and as such, our own team of experts and investigators can determine whether negligence played a role, and who should be liable.

 

Factors that can affect flight operations include the maintenance of the aircraft, air traffic control personnel, aircraft parts, and other external influences. It is the job of the pilot, the airline and airport employees to recognize and minimize the risks of flying. Among the more common factors that can contribute to an airplane accident include:

 

  • Defective equipment
  • Pilot and human error
  • Federal air traffic controller negligence
  • Faulty aircraft design or structure
  • Negligent maintenance

 

Many people are unaware of their legal rights after an accident like this, and are understandably overwhelmed. If a representative is contacting you about the incident, call one of our airplane accident lawyers before signing any kind of agreement or negotiating with them.

 

After an accident, there are many actions that must be taken to ensure a successful lawsuit. Every state has its own laws regarding these types of crashes and the compensation available to injured victims. Typically, victims can collect damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost earnings, disability, and loss of life.

 

Keep in mind that there is a deadline for filing a lawsuit after the accident occurs. We understand that tending to injuries and getting back on your feet is your first priority, and are here to help guide you through the legal process so you can focus on recovery.

 

Our team of airplane accident lawyers is skilled, experienced, and will be by your side the whole time. Contact our the Homsey Law Center today, 405.843.9923 or 800.845.9923.
