Aviation accidents are one of the more legally and factually difficult areas of personal injury or wrongful death litigation.
But these are not the only types of accidents that occur at San Diego Airport. True, cases involving commercial and private flight accidents demand substantial funding and skilled advocacy.
Our San Diego aviation accident attorneys at Ehline Law Firm are skilled in determining liability to give our clients the best opportunity to obtain the just compensation they are entitled to.
Almost all claims brought after an airport premises liability claim, or plane disaster involve:
Finding evidence that establishes clear liability is one of the biggest hurdles in an airport slip and fall, or plane crash lawsuit. Was the airport management company liable for your restaurant burn injury or fall down the escalator? Was a pilot error to blame for the crash? Was there a problem with the equipment? Did the aircraft receive maintenance in accordance with the standards of the airline and the sector? These questions can be answered by our attorneys who specialize in aviation accidents.
In claims involving a shuttle bus accident, Uber, Lyft or airport taxi, including aviation accidents, Ehline Law Firm defends clients in California and across the country. We have a proven track record of winning negotiations and personal injury cases with both major corporate defendants and less major ones.
Essentially, private aircraft accidents occur more often than on commercial carriers. Privately owned planes lack the same internal corporate safety procedures and technologies that commercial airlines use to reduce hazards to passenger safety, which is the main cause of the higher number of small plane crashes.
Private aviation includes any non-commercial air travel, including:
Premises Liability Cases at San Diego Airport Include:
You might be unsure of what to do if a loved one has died at the airport or was killed in a private or commercial jet tragedy. Contact our San Diego airport accident lawyers. If you were in flight, contact our California plane crash attorneys at Ehline Law Firm at (213) 596-9642 to arrange a free consultation to understand your family’s rights better.
Our investigation of the liability issues is likely to take our experts and us all over the country or even overseas. The airport of origin, a hangar at another airport, government inspection files, aircraft maintenance logs, the pilot’s medical records, and employment records, as well as the factories where the plane and its parts were made, may all contain crucial evidence in any case involving an aviation accident.
While the crash site itself and the aircraft’s data recording system will both provide valuable information about the accident’s causes and consequences, it’s likely that the most compelling legal proof of someone else’s negligence or a flawed design existed long before the jet even took off. We can commit the resources necessary to prove your case as thoroughly and convincingly as possible because of our success in complex cases.
Liability in aviation accidents can be difficult to prove, especially if the accident’s cause is unknown. After an accident, airlines and airports occasionally keep the cause and other important relevant information private for months or even years. When passengers and their families contact authorities after an accident, they usually receive the run-around.
The fact that numerous parties may be at fault for airline accidents and that potential defendants often point the finger at others only serves to muddle matters further.
Depending on the specifics of your case, one or more of the following may be held accountable:
Liable parties often have substantial financial means and legal representation. Defendant insurance companies often pay injury claims in San Diego, and dealing with them can be difficult. You need skilled personal injury attorneys who are not afraid to take on defendants with considerable economic resources if you want to protect your airplane accident case and right to compensation.
Several case-specific variables will determine your personal injury claim’s value. You should have the right to receive compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages, at the very least. However, there’s generally more to the story when it comes to recovering after a plane accident.
Some of the important questions our San Diego aviation accident attorneys will ask include:
These are challenging, complicated questions. As necessary, our legal team will consult with experts and specialists to better understand the entire scope of your airplane accident injuries.
Government control and stringent regulations apply to the airline business. In order to determine if there were any difficulties with noncompliance or rule violations, your attorney will review licenses, procedures, rules, and documents. Evidence of license issues, maintenance issues, and other noncompliance can be used to prove the defendant’s negligence.
Families are devastated when a crash occurs, whether it involves a tiny private plane or a huge airliner. We are able to put our considerable experience, track record of successes, and aviation expertise on behalf of our clients in assisting families in dealing with these terrible tragedies. As a successful business, our firm has the means to defend our clients against powerful and financially sound defendants and companies.

Multiple parties can share responsibility for an airplane accident. Even if they are somewhat at fault, victims can still receive damages under California’s strict comparative negligence law.
If you’re accused of causing a crash, it’s important to understand how California’s contributory fault system works. If you are determined to be partially at fault, your damages award may be reduced. Contact our attorneys right now for a free case evaluation if someone is trying to blame you.
