Representation for Aviation Accident Victims
If you or a loved one was hurt or killed in an airplane accident, you may be able to sue the airline carrier. However, it is important to realize that other parties may also be liable in the accident as well. For example, the manufacturer of a defective or poorly designed part or piece of equipment. Planes are complex, with multiple manufacturers who are responsible for the different components. Our firm has the skill, experience, and understanding to find out what caused the accident and to hold all those liable to task for the negligence that contributed to your injury or loss.
We have experience in all types of aviation accident cases, including but not limited to:
- Accidents involving private planes / charter planes
- Accidents involving helicopters
- Accidents involving commercial planes / jets
What Is the Airline’s Responsibility?
International laws and treaties developed over the last 90 years have served to limit recovery for victims in airline disasters in certain circumstances, but there is no cap on recoveries if the airline was negligent. In other words, the burden is on the airline. Unless the airline can provide evidence that they took every precautionary measure to prevent the accident from occurring, there is nothing limiting the injured passenger’s right to recovery.
