Commercial and private aircraft accidents continue to cause serious injury and wrongful death nationally as well as internationally. Legal claims for these crashes can be extremely complex; they involve federal and state regulations, industry standards, and knowledge of the technical aspects of aviation. Our New Jersey aviation accident lawyers handle airplane crash accidents involving both private planes and commercial airliners. We can investigate to determine whether your crash resulted from pilot error, inclement weather, engine failures, maintenance failure, or air-traffic controller negligence.

Airplane crashes are both financially and physically devastating, and often lead to catastrophic and fatal injuries. Through litigation, our attorneys seek to recover maximum compensation for victims and their families. This has the added effect of helping to make flight safer and preventing future accidents.

How Does an Attorney Determine What Caused a Plane Crash?

In the aftermath of an aviation accident, victims and their loved ones often find themselves asking what went wrong—an answer that only highly trained experts can provide. This question is also central to lawsuits and legal claims involving any aviation disaster. The next natural question is: who is to blame? Airplanes are skillfully designed with multiple safety procedures to ensure a safe flight. If an accident occurred that more than likely means that at one point, someone made a critical mistake. The job of an aviation attorney is to find out how and why.

The answers to these questions are rarely simple. A variety of factors contribute to airplane crashes: pilot error, weather or natural interference, design defects, airport design, and of course human error. Liability is not identified until there are thorough and precise investigations. Those investigating must look at all witness statements, any available security camera documentation, black box data and ATC data, maintenance history, identify human factors, look at precise weather data, and consider any other factors.

Settlements in aviation cases often include pain and suffering, medical bills, and past and future loss of wages. If a fatal accident occurs, the victim’s relatives may be eligible for loss of support, funeral expenses, and damages that the deceased would have provided to family members. Especially if the aviation accident includes a major airline, an experienced aviation accident attorney could be essential in defending against the corporation and their legal teams. No matter what the situation may be, taking advantage of a free consultation with Keefe Law Firm will help you better understand your situation and identify the best plan of action.
