Airline Accidents Attorney in New York City
While aviation accidents are not among the most common types of accidents, they often do have a devastating impact on the victim, as well as the victim's family. As they often involve various federal and state laws, federal regulations, international treaties and aspects of products liability law, aviation accidents are among the most complicated to handle. Depending on the claim involved, the Federal Aviation Act, the Federal Tort Claims Act, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and a host of other state and federal laws may apply.
Aviation accidents are not only catastrophic crashes that make headlines and newscasts. They also include everyday accidents, such as in-flight accidents, accidents getting on and off planes and accidents occurring while changing planes. These accidents and crashes can happen on commercial planes, military aircraft, private planes, helicopters and other aircraft.
There can be many causes for aviation accidents, crashes and disasters. They include defectively designed aircraft, air traffic controller negligence, pilot and other human error, negligence in the maintenance and repair of aircraft by the airline or a contractor and other types of negligence. A timely and proper investigation will help determine the cause and determine who may be at fault. Having an experienced lawyer handling your claim is critical to the proper resolution of your claim. Our New York City personal injury lawyers can help you get the answers and compensation you need to move forward with your life.
