Aviation accidents can be devastating for victims and their families. Injuries are often severe or fatal and in some cases multiple family members are injured or killed in the same crash.
Why do I need an experienced aviation accident attorney to represent me?
Aviation accident lawsuits are very complex. State, federal, and international laws may apply in your case. Different types of regulations can apply depending on whether the aircraft was privately owned or a commercial carrier. In order to win your case you need to work with someone who has extensive knowledge in these very unique areas of the law
Investigation and interpretation of the evidence can be very complicated. Proper examination of all of the facts by someone who understands aviation accidents and their causes is absolutely critical to determining who was responsible for your accident.
Why is it so difficult and important to determine the exact cause of the crash?
Safe air travel depends on the proper actions of everyone involved in the flight including the pilot, flight station employees, maintenance crew, air traffic controllers and more. It also depends on the aircraft being designed, built, and maintained properly. Any flaw in the entire system can cause an accident. What may seem obvious can actually be very misleading. Faulty equipment can cause an accident that initially appears to be pilot error. Even the nature of the wreckage itself can make it difficult to determine the cause.
The cause of the accident is an important part of determining who is responsible for your injuries and loss, and can even make a difference in how much compensation you can receive.
