Texas Plane Crash and Aviation Law

We have all seen a plane or helicopter crash on the news. And we understand and realize that the survival rate in such accidents is low. While we realize accidents can happen we never expect it to happen to us or someone we know or love. We never expect to get that phone call telling you that your loved one has died in a plane crash. Everything has changed. What are you going to do? How are you going to survive? Who will help you with living expenses, burial expenses who is responsible? Why did the plane crash? There are so many questions and not enough answers. We can help you find the answers you deserve and the answers you need. Our Law Firm has represented those injured or killed in personal injury losses since 1992.

Plane Crash and Aviation Liability Law

It is important to understand that aviation accident law is different from any other area of the law. Many different individuals and corporations can be the cause of an aviation accident. Other parties besides the airline carrier may be held responsible for the injuries or wrongful death resulting from a plane crash; including the plane manufacturer and their subcontractors and air traffic control. It is important to understand that different laws exist for commercial and private flights.

In a commercial flight, a higher standard of care is expected, much like that of a doctor or lawyer. United, American Airlines, Northwest, Delta, Southwest and all other major airlines must take every reasonable precaution to prevent airplane crashes and injuries on their planes from occurring. The Warsaw Convention and Montreal Protocol are international agreements that may govern the amount of recovery available. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with these laws and how they apply to plane crash victims and their families. You need an attorney that understands these agreements and is familiar with their nuances.

A non-commercial flight has different laws that govern it. Typically, a private aircraft and its pilot and/or mechanics must use ordinary and reasonable care in the operation and maintenance of a plane. The owner of the plane involved in a crash can be held liable for the negligence of a mechanic or pilot. Our dedicated legal team will conduct a thorough investigation, including hiring aviation industry experts, to determine the causes of the accident and which parties are liable.

Individuals who have suffered an injury or loss resulting from a plane crash, or airline or crew negligence while on the ground or in the air deserve representation. Call our Law Firm if you or a loved one has suffered injuries or wrongful death, whether in the air or on the ground, due to a plane crash.
