Understanding Aviation Law

Airplane accident laws vary from state to state. These cases are often very complex, involving multiple parties and numerous instances of negligence. Due to the challenges involved in the laws, it is imperative that you retain an attorney who can thoroughly investigate the circumstances and has access to expert witnesses and resources to help build an effective claim.

Aviation law concerns accidents and injuries resulting from the following:

  • Large Air Carriers
  • Private Planes
  • Business Jets
  • Helicopters
  • Hang Gliders
  • Tour/Charter Flights
  • Medical Helicopters & Airplanes
  • Pleasure & Hobby Aircraft

Common Causes of Airplane Accidents

Many factors can impact a successful flight. Those operating, maintaining, and working on the aircraft are obligated to report any odd occurrences and, as much as possible, mitigate the risks of flight.

Common factors involved in airplane accidents may include the following:

  • Error by the pilot or another human factor
  • Negligence on the part of a Federal air traffic controller
  • Fault in the aircraft structure or design
  • Lack of proper maintenance
  • Defects in aircraft equipment

It is important to note that there are legal options available even for those who were injured or lost a loved one in a plane accident outside the United States. Contact one of our airplane accident lawyers to see if you are able to file a claim.

Airplane Defects

In 2018 and 2019, two catestrophic airplane crashes were caused by one Boeing aircraft: the 737 Max. The 2018 crash killed 189 people on an Indonesian Lion Air flight, and the 2019 crash killed 157 people on an Ethiopian Airlines flight. The investigations into the cause of these crashes is ongoing, but the Boeing 737 Max planes have been grounded worldwide. This model is the fastest-selling and most important aircraft in Boeing's fleet.

Now, Boeing faces a global safety crisis. The circumstances surrounding the Lion Air and Ethopian Airline crashes are eerily similar. If the Boeing 737 Max is found to be defective, the company will face massive legal liability from the victims' families.

Protecting Victims of Airplane Accidents

After an airplane accident, it is common for insurance companies and airline employees to contact victims to convince them to sign legal papers. These papers are meant to protect the airline and release them from liability, leaving victims at a loss. Understandably, an airplane accident can be overwhelming for victims and their loved ones. Don't be pushed around by a representative before contacting Pintas & Mullins Law Firm. We can help you determine what your best options are.

After the accident, another factor to consider is the deadline for filing a lawsuit. Our compassionate  aviation accident attorneys know that you are going through a lot. We can take care of the legal complications while you or your loved ones concentrate on recovery.
