Aviation accidents, although rare, almost always end in tragedy. They can cause catastrophic injury and death for passengers on the plane, as well as those on the ground.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a plane crash, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our West Palm Beach aviation accident lawyers know the intricacies of aviation law and will work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Backed by years of experience securing successful verdicts and settlements, our attorneys are committed to defending the rights of the injured. We are proud to work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid unless you win.
Causes of Aviation Accidents
Every airline, whether it is commercial or a private charter, is responsible for hiring competent pilots, staff, mechanics and other crew members who must thoroughly maintain and inspect an aircraft before it leaves the ground. Pilots of private planes also have a responsibility to take proper precautions before taking flight.
Any failure to uphold proper safety standards can have drastic consequences and lead to devastating accidents. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents can include:
- Pilot error
- Violations of Federal Aviation Administration regulations
- Aircraft design or structural problems
- Poorly secured baggage in overhead compartments
- Faulty equipment
- Scalding from hot beverages
- Negligence of flight service employees
- Incorrect packaging or storage of hazardous cargo
- Federal air traffic controller error
- Component malfunction
- Poor maintenance
- Bad weather
Our West Palm Beach aviation accident lawyers will investigate and analyze the root causes of an accident to determine who should be held liable and how we can build a robust case to get you the full amount of compensation you deserve.
We will proudly defend the rights of victims and their families against any party responsible for an aviation accident, including airlines, parts suppliers, maintenance companies, manufacturers and anyone else who may have contributed to the crash.
Whether you were a passenger on a plane or if an aircraft crashed into your home or property, you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side who is well-versed in aviation law and will fight to protect your rights.
