The personal injury lawyers at Morgan Law Firm are experienced in handling claims arising out of aviation accidents, including crashes involving commercial jets, private planes, cargo planes, and helicopters. Such accidents can result from a number of different causes including:
- improper maintenance;
- manufacturing defects;
- air traffic control problems;
- problems on the runway; and,
- pilot errors, such as misjudging altitude, flying without proper training in challenging conditions, or running out of fuel.
Personal injury lawsuits arising out of aviation accidents often involve a variety of complicated issues and numerous state and federal statutes governing the aviation industry. Additionally, the Federal Aviation Administration issues regulations governing airplane safety, air traffic control, airports, accident and crash investigations, and many other issues related to aviation. To successfully pursue a claim in this area of law, it is critical that you hire a lawyer who understands the complex statutory and regulatory system governing this area of law.
Aviation accident cases also require knowledge of mechanical and technical issues related to aircraft operation and maintenance; without an understanding of these aspects of a case, it can be difficult to prove that an accident was caused by negligence or misconduct. Additionally, damages resulting from aviation accidents almost always involve catastrophic injuries or death. Legal counsel that is experienced in handling these types of large personal injury claims will have a better grasp of the underlying medical and evidentiary issues that are likely to come into play in court or in settlement negotiations.
