Airline Crashes

Modern technology and government regulation have made flying one of the safest forms of transportation. No one should ever have to lose a loved one in a plane crash. When an airplane accident results in injury or death, determining who the negligent party is can be a complex task. Often it is not just one but several involved parties who are ultimately found liable. Those could include the airplane manufacturer, manufacturers of airplane parts and the airline itself.

We have the resources to obtain maximum compensation of the victims of air crashes. Our relationships with renowned aviation experts and other industry personnel are invaluable asset to clients seeking their rightful damages. They all contribute to the complex task of determining fault, holding the responsible parties accountable and ensuring that similar calamities do not happen again.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), there were close to 2,000 aircraft accidents nationwide in 2007. There may be different circumstance surrounding an airline accident which can contribute to its cause. Those are:

  • Aviation Crashes
  • Non crash related aviation accidents

Non crash-related aviation accidents

People think of aviation accidents as occurring when an airplane crashes. Newspaper and television news cover these type of events when they occur. Statistically, every year there are thousands of non–crash–related aviation accidents. Common, but not commonly known accidents which can result in injury to passengers and crew members include:

  • Small Plane and Commercial Airline Crashes
  • Baggage falling inside the plane
  • Assaults on the plane and at the airport
  • Injuries caused by turbulence
  • Jetway accidents, in-flight accidents, or accidents which occur at the airport on the premises
  • Accidents involving cars and taxis which strike pedestrians at the airport

Many of these incidents can result in serious injuries. It is not uncommon to see fractures/broken bones, back and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury and, sometimes death.
