Aviation Accidents

Aviation accidents account for a small percentage of serious injury and death cases compared to other types of injury accidents. However the outcome of an aviation accident is usually catastrophic to the victims and their families. An injury or death that occurs in relation to aviation calls for sound knowledge of aviation and its laws. Important legal rights can be lost if these rules are not closely followed.

One of our attorneys, John Burns, is a former marine pilot, and airline captain. Our clients have included persons injured in private and commercial airplane crashes and in-flight accidents and we have been highly successful in obtaining substantial recoveries for the injured people we have represented.

After an aircraft injury occurs, a prompt investigation is critical to determine the cause, whether the accident was the fault of the air traffic controller, the pilot or the manufacturer, or was caused by improper maintenance. The right investigation and evaluation often leads to a prompt resolution of the claim.

For example, one of the shortest deadlines arises when someone is injured or dies due to the negligence of an air traffic controller. Since these persons are employees of the United States Government, the claim is made against the United States under the Federal Tort Claims Act and must be filed within 180 days from the date of injury. If this short claim filing deadline is missed, the right to recover may be lost forever. Claims against the pilot may have longer deadlines that vary depending upon the facts of the individual case.

An aviation injury or death requires specialized knowledge. Make sure you have the right representation by an attorney who is truly qualified in aviation law. Our experienced team of lawyers will investigate the facts, evaluate your claim, determine which parties and insurance companies are responsible, and handle all of the details of preparing and presenting your case.
