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.
