The Legal Challenges You May Encounter in Your Airplane Accident Case

Aviation accidents are often complex, which makes it challenging to obtain a settlement. Finding evidence that establishes clear liability is one of the biggest hurdles in a plane crash case.

The accident could be the result of the following:

  • Pilot error
  • Faulty equipment
  • Poor maintenance.

To secure a positive outcome, we will have to analyze several federal regulations, navigate complicated contracts and insurance policies, and conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the plane crash.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Your Damages in Aviation Accidents?

To complicate matters further, multiple parties may have contributed to the incident and could be held liable for plane crashes.

This includes:

  • Air traffic control
  • Airlines
  • Maintenance staff
  • Pilots
  • The Federal Aviation Administration.

Our attorneys are well-versed in California law and can help you assign liability to obtain the maximum compensation for mechanical failure, human error, and even against negligent government agencies and air traffic controllers. We have a proven track record of winning negotiations and court cases with significant corporate entities. Call us today to discuss your legal options at (213) 596-9642.

Accidents Involving Private Aircraft

Private aviation experiences mishaps more frequently than commercial airlines do. Because privately owned aircraft lack the same safety regulations and technology that commercial airlines utilize to reduce hazards to passenger safety, there are more small airplane accidents.

The following aircraft are often private:

  • Helicopters
  • Chartered business airplanes
  • Agricultural aircraft
  • Planes used for sightseeing
  • Private jets.

If you or someone you love was the victim of a private plane crash, contact Ehline Law Firm to file a claim and hold the at-fault party liable for their negligence.

Common Injuries Sustained in Airplane Accidents

The truth is that aviation accidents often result in serious injuries. This includes:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn wounds
  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Back injuries.

Medical bills can start to accumulate following aviation accidents. The good news is that victims of plane crashes can find relief by filing aviation lawsuits with help from our aviation experts and knowledgeable attorneys. Speak to us 24/7 at (213) 596-9642.

Where Do We Look for Evidence?

As we’ve mentioned before, gathering evidence is crucial to the success of aviation accident lawsuits. Whether the plane crash resulted from pilot error or the air controller’s failure to direct the aircraft correctly, you will need to present evidence to support the value of your difficult claim.

The following can be used as proof to support your personal injury case: 

  • Government inspection documentation
  • Airplane maintenance logs
  • Records from the airport
  • The pilot’s medical records
  • Employment records.

While the accident site and the airplane’s data capture system will provide vital information about the accident’s consequences and causes, it’s likely that the most compelling legal proof of negligence or a flawed design existed long before the jet even took off.

Our highly skilled Southern California accident attorneys can devote the resources required to establish your case as extensively and convincingly as possible because of our success in previous tough cases.
