Airplane Accidents - TheLawFirm
“Air travel is much safer than car travel.”
“I’d sooner trust two pilots than the thousands of crazy drivers on the road.”
Reassurances like those don’t offer much consolation if you or a loved one has been in an aviation accident. Statistically speaking, air travel may very well be safer than car travel. But those statistics are meaningless if you’ve lost a loved one in a plane crash.
The expert attorneys at TheLawFirm.com can help you make sense of your life again after the trauma of an airplane accident.
We all know the risks of air travel, but the fact is that, most of the time, it is extremely safe. But that means that when aviation accidents do occur, they are all the more shocking and disruptive.
The nature of airplane accidents is that, when they do occur, they typically result in more fatalities than injuries. And any injuries that do result from plane crashes are usually severe.
Do you have any legal options if a loved one dies in a plane crash? The answer is YES.
The attorneys at TheLawFirm.com are experienced in handling lawsuits that arise from air accidents. Depending on the circumstances of a given crash, a number of defendants may be liable. These include but are not necessarily limited to:
• the owner of the airplane
• the manufacturer of the airplane
• the airplane’s maintenance crew
• airline personnel (executives and/or pilots and/or crew)
• the manufacturer of individual parts of the airplane
• other passengers
All of these parties may be found partially or entirely responsible of the negligence that may have caused the accident that injured you and/or killed one or more of your loved ones.
We’re also well-versed in state-by-state (and Canadian) aviation law, so we fully understand how to handle cases in various locations.
If you or a loved on has been injured in a plane crash, you may be entitled to seek personal injury damages of several kinds:
• medical expenses
• pain and suffering
• lost wages, and the loss of the ability to earn wages
• scarring and disfigurement
If a loved one has been killed in a plane crash, you and/or your family members may be entitled to seek wrongful death damages of several kinds:
• any medical expenses incurred prior to death
• pain and suffering expenses incurred prior to death
• loss of the economic support of your loved one
• loss of the companionship of your loved one
• funeral expenses
In most air accident lawsuits, any damages awarded are civil – that is, they are not awarded to compensate for any criminal activity. However, in a small number of airplane accident lawsuits, you may be able to file for punitive damages for the punishment of wrongful conduct. Such cases are rare, but they do happen, and you will want experienced criminal attorneys like those of TheLawFirm.com on your side in case you find yourself in this difficult situation.
