Airplane / Aviation Accidents

The aviation industry has continued to grow for decades. People are flying more than ever before, both on commercial airlines and in private aircraft. This increase in air travel has also led to an increase in the occurrence of aviation accidents.

Typical causes of aviation accidents include pilot error, mechanical problems, design flaws, violation of FAA regulations, Negligence of the flight crew or air traffic controllers, and weather.

The most serious airline accidents are those involving in-air collisions and those occurring while a plane is taking off or landing. These accidents often result in significant personal injury and death. Personal injuries can also occur due to turbulence, falling luggage or unsafe airport facilities.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, several different parties may be held liable in an aviation lawsuit including pilots, the airline, the airplane manufacturer or designer, airport management, the maintenance and repair crew, and air-traffic controllers. These lawsuits typically involve claims of Negligence, product liability, or some combination of the two.

Damages available to persons injured in aviation accidents may include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and possibly punitive damages. Aviation lawsuits are subject to various Statutes Of Limitations which limit the amount of time you have to file a claim. In order to protect your rights, you should immediately seek the advice of an attorney who has experience with this type of case.

Aviation accidents can be extremely complex and require the skill of an experienced litigator. If you or someone you know has been injured in an aviation accident, call The Scranton Law Firm today for a free consultation at 1 (800) 400-8742.
