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
- 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 Chicago airplane accident attorneys to see if you are able to file a claim.
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 Chicago personal injury 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.
