Although flying is often considered a safe mode of transportation, machines and pilots are not always reliable. Unfortunately, due to the height of a passenger plane, jet or helicopter, aviation accidents frequently cause catastrophic damage.
Salim-Beasley, LLC investigates accidents that involve all modes of air carriers, including helicopters, private jets, commercial aircraft and charter flights. Our lawyers fight for the injured and surviving family members to recover maximum compensation to pay for the resulting financial, physical and emotional damage.
Causes Of Aviation Accidents
When an aircraft fails or crashes, the cause might not be known at first. Passengers on a plane, for example, are not able to see or hear the pilots. It may be difficult to determine who to hold liable for accidental injuries and fatalities.
Some factors leading to helicopter or plane crashes include:
- Faulty equipment or parts
- An error by the pilot
- Structural issues with the design of the aircraft
- Negligence by the cabin crew
People injured in aviation accidents do not have to pursue compensation on their own. Our lawyers have experience investigating multifaceted personal injury cases, and we are ready to provide strong representation in and out of court.
