  • What Are Some Examples of Aviation Accidents?

    Aviation accidents in and around Washington, DC, can encompass a wide range of incidents. These include but are not limited to:

    • Commercial airline crashes
    • Private plane accidents
    • Helicopter accidents
    • In-flight equipment failures
    • Emergency landings that led to injuries
    • Accidents that occur on the ground, involving runway incursions or collisions.
  • Common Industries Involved in Aviation

    The aviation industry is broad and involves several sectors. That's usually one of the biggest challenges of bringing claims against parties in this industry.

    For perspective, commercial airlines operating passenger and cargo flights are a major part of this industry. Private aviation includes corporate jets and smaller private planes. The manufacturing sector, on the other hand, which designs and produces aircraft and components, is also part of the aviation industry.

    The same applies to maintenance and repair services, air traffic control, and airport operations. Each of these sectors plays a role in overall aviation safety and can be held responsible following an aviation accident.

  • Who Can File a Claim?

    Victims of aviation accidents or their families are usually eligible for compensation when they file a claim against the at-fault party. This includes passengers on commercial or private flights, crew members, and even individuals on the ground who may be affected by an aviation incident.

    In the unfortunate event of a fatal accident, the deceased's family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit. Employees in the aviation sector, such as maintenance workers or flight crew, can also file claims if they are injured due to negligence or unsafe working conditions.

  • Against Whom Can I File a Claim With?

    Claims following an aviation accident can be filed against various parties, depending on the accident's circumstances. These can include but are not limited to:

    • airlines, for operational negligence or safety lapses;
    • aircraft manufacturers, if a design or manufacturing defect caused the accident;
    • maintenance companies, for inadequate maintenance or repairs that led to the accident;
    • and government entities responsible for air traffic control.
