Airplane, Bus, Multi-passenger Accidents
“Progress flows only from struggle.”
Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis
An airline flight, usually safer than a drive in a car, can sometimes end tragically. Accidents can range from on-ground to in-flight and can result in serious injury or death. Negligence in airplane construction and maintenance, landing strip monitoring, flight control or pilot decision-making can cause devastating effects worldwide.
The airline industry is prepared for these types of accidents, though, as well as the ensuing litigation. The Federal Aviation Administration and the airlines themselves establish security protocol in plane construction and maintenance, in-flight piloting and the flight space and landing areas for high levels of air traffic. When someone fails in their duties as dictated by this protocol, catastrophe through serious injury or death are likely to result.
These results are preventable and tragic. If you or a loved one is an airplane accident victim, your situation requires immediate legal representation so that justice may serve to compensate you properly as well as generate improved future laws governing airline safety.
The cause of action is usually one based in negligence, and the statute of limitations for suing someone in Texas for an accident is two years.
It is crucial to find a good lawyer who is experienced in managing this type of litigation and who understands airline safety regulations. Finding someone who knows how to handle large corporations, insurance companies and their lawyers, and what to address medically and legally will assist in the pursuit of a fair settlement.
Financial recovery can include personal property damage and present and future medical bills. Other potential areas of compensation, depending on the facts of the situation, are mental pain and suffering damages, lost past and future wages, permanent impairment/disfigurement, punitive damages, wrongful death damages and loss of enjoyment of life.
Having the right lawyer on your side can protect your interests during this difficult time.
