Aviation Accident Attorney

Airplane and Aviation Accidents

The FAA expects air travel to double in the next 20 years. With so many more people taking to the skies, and more planes in the air, it is likely that there will be more accidents. For the most part, flying is a safe means of transportation, but, understandably, when accidents happen the result is often catastrophic with fatalities occurring. Additionally, we do not always hear about less serious accidents in smaller, private aircraft because many of these events are unreported.

Whether you are flying in a commercial jet, a small private plane or on a helicopter, you are putting your trust in the airline, pilots, flight crew, mechanics and air traffic controllers to keep you safe until you land at your destination. If you or someone you love has been harmed or suffered a wrongful death in an aviation accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries or loss. A skilled aviation accident attorney from our firm will fight to recover the full damages that your case merits.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) are the organizations whose responsibility is to investigate aviation accidents and monitor air transportation. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents are due to disregard for FAA and NTSB regulations and guidelines. Other causes include:

Faulty equipment

Mechanical failures

Pilot or flight crew mistakes

Hazardous material aboard the aircraft

Structural design defects

Improper fueling or maintenance

Negligence or mistakes by federal air traffic controllers

A thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident is vital to obtaining the monies you are entitled to. We will obtain all relevant airplane manufacturer documents, airline records and FAA reports and use them to ascertain why the accident occurred. We have access to aviation experts who are knowledgeable about all aspects of aviation operations, maintenance and accidents. Our goal is to achieve justice for you, and for those loved ones that you have lost. Contact an aviation accident lawyer today for a free initial consultation.



What to do After an Accident

No one ever expects to be in an accident. When one occurs, knowing what to do after the incident can be extremely important. If you are involved in an accident, the first action to take is to ensure anyone that has been injured receives proper medical treatment. Even if you believe you weren’t seriously hurt, it is still a good idea to get a checked out by a health care professional. The police should also be contacted so that the scene can be properly documented, including identifying all of the individuals involved in the accident, and any witnesses that saw what occurred. If you have a cell phone with a digital camera, take your own pictures as well from as many different angles as possible. A  personal injury lawyer should also be contacted, especially if you suffered injuries and the accident was not your fault. A capable attorney will know how to conduct a thorough investigation of the accident to find out who was responsible for the incident, and hold them accountable for any damages.

Back & Neck Injuries

Car Accident Cases

One of the most common injuries suffered in car accidents are back and neck injuries. When a car is rear-ended, side-swiped or involved in a head-on collision, the driver and passengers are thrown forward or back suddenly and with extreme force. The impact often causes serious bruising, tendon damage, and muscle damage. The spine can be twisted and jolted to such a degree that the victim can suffer serious damage to the vertebrae and disks, sometimes permanent. These injuries are very painful and often require long term rehabilitation.

The victim could be unable to work, or even function normally in life for an extended period of time. As in all back and neck injuries, it can be difficult to predict how long any injured person will take to recover, and some recover more quickly than others. Each case must be evaluated individually to determine how to proceed with a claim for compensation. All medical bills, lost wages, future wage loss and rehabilitation must be included in the claim filed to seek compensation in the form of a settlement.

Whiplash, Neck Injuries and Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries create terrible difficulty in doing even the most common tasks, and many injured individuals can do little other than lie down for a period of time while trying to recover. Sitting, standing, turning the head and other normal motions are often impossible, and the victim will be unable to work for a period of time. Some serious cases will require surgery to attempt to correct a serious back injury. Any such case demands the assistance of a car accident attorney from our firm to assist in resolving the legal matters surrounding a car accident in which a back or neck injury took place.

Even a minor accident can cause serious injuries, and whiplash is no small matter. This is a serious injury and can take many months to resolve. The injured victim often needs extensive rehabilitation to try to resolve the painful condition. Our legal team will seek the maximum possible compensation for damages in car accident injury cases and can protect you from insurance company efforts to reduce your claim amount. Contact a car accident attorney if you have suffered back or neck injuries after a car accident.



Bicycle vs. Car Accidents

Car Accident Lawyer

Every year over 78,000 bicycle riders and pedestrians are seriously injured in collisions with motor vehicles. The injuries inflicted upon the bicyclists from these accidents are numerous, including broken bones, abrasions, cuts, friction burns, amputation, brain injuries, coma, head trauma, broken teeth, and death.

When a bike rider is struck by the negligent driver of a motor vehicle, it is the responsibility of that driver’s insurance company to pay you compensation for the bills and expenses you will have to pay due to your accident. A  car accident attorney from our firm has many years of experience working with bicycle riders who have been the victim of collisions with cars that weigh much more and travel much faster than the bicycles do. If you are a bicyclist who has suffered serious injuries due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver, call our firm right away.

Bicycle Riders Have Equal Rights

Many drivers do not believe that bicycle riders have and are protected by the same rights as those afforded to other motor vehicle drivers. For this reason, bicyclists may even appear to be “invisible” to these drivers. Sometimes drivers may simply ignore them. When this occurs, it is more likely there will be a collision between the vehicle driver and the bicycle rider. Of course, when there is a car or truck involved, the bike rider’s injuries will commonly be more severe than if the collision was between two bicycles.

Our firm is dedicated to protecting your rights when negotiating with insurance companies who want to give you less compensation than you are entitled to, and who try to take advantage of your physical pain and emotional state of mind to hurry up and settle your case. Our skilled legal team is committed to protecting your rights and recovering the damages you will need to pay for your medical treatment, lost wages, rehabilitation and other expenses.Contact a  car accident attorney today for a no charge initial consultation.
