While flying is one of the safest forms of transportation, when accidents do occur, they can be catastrophic tragedies. Survivors or families of the deceased have the right to compensation for their losses.

The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) keeps a database of aircraft accidents and investigates aviation mishaps and catastrophes. According to the database, there have been over 1,200 US general aviation accidents over the past ten years. Small planes are involved in the majority of these collisions. Commercial airliners are far less common, with an annual average of 30.

Aviation accidents from various types of aircraft are subject to injury claims. We can help you obtain compensation for injuries sustained in a: 

  • Commercial aircraft
  • General aviation (private) aircraft
  • Helicopter
  • Hot air balloon
  • Paramotor
  • And other aircraft

What are some Potential Causes of an Aviation Accident?

  • Human error: Unruly passengers account for most injuries on commercial flights. Victims of injuries resulting from an airline’s failure to regulate passenger behavior may be eligible for compensation. The foundations of premises liability still apply to these types of cases.

  • Pilot Error: Aircraft and helicopters are challenging to fly, so both leisure and professional pilots must complete training programs and log hundreds of hours in the air before receiving their pilot’s license. Despite training and experience, pilots can still make errors that result in accidents, just like vehicle operators. Over 60% of aircraft accidents are the result of pilot error.

  • Mechanical Failure: 20% of all aviation accidents are due to mechanical failure. Different failure types can include engine, electrical system, and/or design errors.

  • Weather: Although helicopters and airplanes can fly in terrible weather, extremely bad weather can increase the risk of accidents and make flying more dangerous. Unexpected storms or other weather conditions can catch pilots off guard and unprepared. 

Bird strikes, intense turbulence, poor sight, and miscommunication with ground control are other reasons an accident could occur. 

The following may accept full or partial responsibility for your losses:

  • Commercial airline
  • The pilot of the commercial aircraft
  • Owner/operator of a private aircraft
  • Manufacturer of the airplane or helicopter
  • Manufacturer of parts for the airplane or helicopter
  • The federal government, including the Federal Aviation Administration

How Much Is My Aviation Accident Claim Worth?

Any aviation accident, regardless of crash severity, can result in injuries that range from minor to potentially fatal. Broken bones, severe brain injuries, and spinal cord damage could result from a more serious collision. Besides the physical trauma, severe injuries can make rehabilitation more challenging because recovery may be slow, and medical expenditures can quickly accumulate.

Medical Costs: Medical expenses for injuries caused by an aviation accident may be the focal point of the case. These costs are often fully or partially awarded to plaintiffs in a settlement.

Pain and suffering: You may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering resulting from an aviation accident. Pain and suffering may include emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of companionship, and other intangible effects.

Lost Wages: Injuries caused by an aviation accident may prevent you from working. If this occurs, you may be able to pursue your lost wages as part of your settlement.

Wrongful Death: If a loved one died in a plane or helicopter crash, surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties. The family may obtain compensation for damages relating to loss of consortium or inheritance.

The lawyers at Razavi Law Group are here for you. We work tirelessly to obtain details of your case, gather evidence, and secure compensation for you. However, you must not sign or accept any settlements from an insurance company or other responsible party before consulting an experienced aviation accident attorney. Speaking with an attorney is crucial when aviation accidents occur. Insurance companies are more concerned with protecting their bottom line than compensating you for your medical bills and trauma. The insurance company will try to pay the least amount possible or avoid paying out altogether. Accepting a settlement offer from an insurance company without consulting your attorney could result in low offers that do not fairly compensate you for damages you are entitled to, including future medical expenses, emotional trauma, or pain and suffering. 

Consult with our knowledgeable lawyers at Razavi Law Group to receive the compensation you deserve.

From beginning to end, the Razavi Law Group went above and beyond my expectations. The two individuals who were with me my entire case were my case manager, Paloma and my attorney, Tim.Paloma was extremely diligent and timely in all forms of communication and helping set local appointments for my injury. She also relayed information from the attorney (Tim), and got me in touch with him whenever I needed.I was more than lucky to have Tim assigned to me as my attorney. Aside from being extremely professional and informative of the entire legal process, he was extremely patient, charismatic, and thorough. He is truly passionate about his job and his clients no matter the size of their case. Any questions or confusion I had regarding any step of the process, Tim was always more than happy to take an extra couple of minutes to explain and clarify.I am very happy to have found this law group, but more specifically, these two individuals.
