  • What Causes Aviation Accidents?

    These accidents occur due to various reasons. More than half of the time, though, negligence is usually a factor. Common causes of aviation accidents include:

    • Pilot error
    • Mechanical failure, especially equipment malfunction or breakdown
    • Bad weather conditions, like turbulence, storms, icy runways
    • Air traffic control errors, such as miscommunication
    • Bird strikes
    • Unauthorized aircraft, vehicles, or persons on the runway
    • Inadequate fuel or mismanagement of fuel supply
    • flaws in aircraft design or structural integrity
    • Crew fatigue or lack of training
  • How Do I File a Claim?

    Filing an aviation accident claim involves a lengthy process and different parties. The specifics of your case will also determine how best to proceed with the case, including who to file the claim with. For instance, the question of whether or not the claim should be handled at the state or federal level will likely pop up. Involving an experienced attorney in your case is the best way to find out who might owe you compensation for your injuries and losses.

  • Damages In an Aviation Accident Case

    Every aviation case is unique, even if it happened under similar circumstances, such as the same airport or aircraft. For this reason, these damages are not written on stone; they vary from case to case. These could include:

    • Medical expenses (immediate and long-term treatment costs)
    • income lost due to inability to work after the accident
    • Loss of future earning capacity 
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of consortium
    • Property damage
    • Funeral and burial expenses (in cases of fatalities)
    • Punitive damages (in cases of gross negligence or intentional harm)
    • Emotional distress
    • Disfigurement and physical impairment
