Aviation accidents: you have options

Many Arizona residents prefer to travel by air, and some even enjoy being in the cockpit themselves. Whether you travel for business, leisure or recreation, the chances of an aviation accident and what would happen afterward have likely crossed your mind. You may have even already been injured and trying to understand your legal options.
Our legal team has the investigative experience you want and need when you are considering a personal injury lawsuit after an accident. If you were injured in a helicopter or plane crash, we can help uncover whether any design defects or equipment malfunctions played a part. A failure to keep up with routine maintenance or inspections can mean that a foreseeable issue goes uncovered, resulting in a crash.

Sometimes aviation accidents are caused by the pilot instead of an issue with the aircraft itself. When we fly, we rightfully assume that the pilot is qualified and experienced enough to be flying the aircraft, but in many cases, this simply isn’t true. If a charter business or commercial airline is negligent in ensuring that the pilot has the proper safety training and has put in the required number of hours on that particular aircraft, the company may be able to be held liable for the accident.

Victims injured in aviation accidents often have serious injuries and life-long complications even if they survive. In the event of a fatality, the person’s surviving family members may be suddenly left without an income. If you or someone you know was injured in an aviation accident due to the fault of another person or business, we can help you better understand your options and the next steps moving forward.
