Atlanta Aviation Accidents

At Morgan & Morgan, our Atlanta aviation attorneys have years of experience handling accident lawsuits, including those arising from airplane and helicopter mishaps. When presented with an aviation accident claim, our attorneys work directly with federal, state, and local investigators to determine the cause of the aviation accident.

In many cases, our lawyers will conduct their own inquiry using independent investigators to confirm that the government’s accident reports are accurate and fully explain the cause. With the help of these experts, our attorneys can aggressively pursue fair compensation for the victims of such disasters.

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an aviation accident, it is important that you contact an attorney immediately. With aviation accidents, our lawyers need to review all available evidence as soon as possible. In addition, the law imposes a time limit in which an aviation lawsuit may be filed.

How an Aviation Attorney Can Help

Analyzing Evidence

Morgan & Morgan’s attorneys have experience reviewing and analyzing evidence in airplane accidents. In the aftermath of such an incident, our attorneys seek to review all available evidence, including flight data recorders, cockpit voice recorders, air traffic control records, crew training records, maintenance and inspection records, and procedures and maintenance manuals.

In cases involving aircraft design or manufacturing defects, our attorneys may retain experts who will review the manufacturer’s records concerning design and testing of the aircraft, and analyze similar vehicles that have employed safer designs. This can help us determine the party or parties liable for your losses.

Negotiating Settlements

Frequently in aviation accidents, the insurance company for the airline or airplane manufacturer may make an initial settlement offer that does not adequately compensate the victim or the victim’s family for their damages.

Our Atlanta attorneys will review any settlement offers that you have received, and may negotiate on your behalf for a higher payment. If these negotiations do not result in an adequate settlement offer, our attorneys may file a lawsuit seeking appropriate damages.

Recovering Compensation

If you or a loved one has been the victim of an aviation accident, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. In an aviation lawsuit, an attorney can seek compensation on your behalf for past and future medical bills, physical pain, and emotional suffering.

In cases involving the wrongful death of a spouse or relative, an attorney may be able to help you receive compensation for loss of income and companionship. In certain cases involving particularly reckless behavior, your aviation attorney can seek punitive damages, which are designed to punish liable parties and prevent similar wrongful behavior.

Airplane and Aviation Accident Cases

Morgan & Morgan’s Atlanta aviation attorneys handle lawsuits and settlement negotiations arising out of accidents involving commercial airliners, private planes, military aircraft, and helicopters.

Many aviation accidents are the result of human error or improperly manufactured equipment. Our aviation attorneys represent victims and their families in lawsuits involving the negligence of pilots, crews, maintenance personal and airline management, as well as defects in the design and manufacture of aircraft components.

We also represent individuals who have suffered in-flight injuries resulting from airline negligence.

With regard to aviation crashes, Morgan & Morgan’s aviation attorneys have investigated airplane and helicopter accidents caused by the following:

  • Pilot error
  • Weather conditions
  • Runway defects
  • Mechanical failure, including engine and other component failure
  • Defective design
  • Contaminated fuel

  • Improper maintenance
  • Violation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations
