Airplane Accidents & Aviation Liability
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), is charged with determining the probable cause of transportation accidents and promoting transportation safety, and assisting victims of transportation accidents and their families. The vast majority of crashes are blamed on pilot error. As a result of his Private Pilot experience, and reliance on industry experts, Jim Avery is able to go beyond the NTSB ‘probable cause determination,’ which is neither binding nor generally admissible in civil lawsuits.
Our catastrophic injury firm is devoted to handling the following types of airplane accidents:
- Commercial Airplane Accidents (Boeing 737, Boeing 747, Airbus)
- Personal Aircraft (Ultralight, Single-Engine Airplanes)
- Charter Airplanes
- Business Jets
- Twin-Engine Aircraft
- Military Aircraft
- Airport Accidents
- Medical Transport
Aviation disasters can be caused by pilot error, weather, mechanical failure or other human error, not to mention the rare but horrific cases of airplane hijacking. The Avery Law Firm has first-hand experience with airplane crashes, including the trial of a legal malpractice case against an prominent Texas lawyer (John Eddie Williams, Burrow and Williams Law Firm) who mishandled a Telluride jet crash case. Jim Avery is available to assist other lawyers and firms in the investigation and trial of aviation law cases.
How do you know if you qualify for an airplane crash lawsuit?
Surviving family members of people killed in aviation disasters would typically be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party or entity. An injured person who survives an airplane crash may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit for damages including pain and suffering (including post-traumatic stress), medical costs, loss of income, disability and disfigurement.
Typically, victims of an aviation accident filing a claim must do so within a certain time period after the accident, or permanently waive the right to seek financial compensation.
At the Avery Law Firm, we will undertake a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your crash (rather than rubber stamp the NTSB Probably Cause Determination) and help you decide whether to file an aviation accident lawsuit.
