California Aviation Accident Attorneys


When it comes to aircraft accidents, there is no such thing as a minor fender-bender. When an aircraft is involved in an accident, the results are often catastrophic, but because they are rarer than auto accidents, many lawyers do not handle or negotiate these cases effectively. We do.

In our experience, the following are some of the most common causes of aviation accidents:

  • Negligent or ineffective performance from federal air traffic controllers
  • Mechanical, design, or maintenance problems with the aircraft
  • Inefficient runway traffic control
  • Crew negligence
  • Pilot errors, omissions, or negligence
  • Pilot flying while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Overburdened equipment
  • Sabotage
  • Malfunctioning computers
  • Flying in inclement weather
  • Loss of visibility on either takeoff or landing

Unfortunately, the cause of an aircraft accident usually comes down to human error and it could often have been avoided if the proper safety precautions had been taken. If you have been injured in such an accident, you deserve to be compensated by the at-fault party.

After an aviation accident, insurance adjusters, investigators from the FAA, airline representatives, and perhaps even the media may pressure you to make a statement. It is critical that you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney before making any kind of statement. Anything you say after an accident can be used against you by opposing counsel. These cases get complicated quickly, and an experienced airplane accident attorney can make a huge difference in a victim’s ability to collect the compensation he or she needs to recover.

How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?
