Man injured in an aviation accident files lawsuit

Planes are often regarded as one of the safest modes of transportation. Ground transportation, such as cars, buses and trains are, at times, very risky for passengers. People who choose those modes of transportation, however, often feel more comfortable being on the ground as opposed to being in the air. However, in the event of an aviation accident, there is the potential for the accident victims to suffer devastating injuries, more than seems to be the case with an average car or truck accident. Therefore, the laws relating to aviation safety and maintenance are very strict and can help prevent such accidents.

Plane crash kills four onboard; luckily, none on the ground

Aviation incidents often lead to very serious injuries as well as fatalities. Planes are often regarded as one of the safest modes of transportation and statistics show that they usually are. However, there are some known risks and dangers that accompany air travel, especially for non-commercial small plane flights. Montana pilots closely observe the various factors which can affect safe plane operation, including weather conditions, and they practice other safety procedures, such as plane mechanical maintenance, before taking to the air. These practices help reduce the number of small plane crashes.

Truckers must follow stringent rules to prevent truck accidents

Truck drivers are often subjected to more stringent laws than their non-commercial or personal driving counterparts. One of the reasons for the state authorities to impose such stringent traffic rules and regulations on these drivers is that a road accident involving a truck can cause greater devastation to people and property than a small car due to the mammoth size of many trucks. Edwards, Frickle & Culver, Montana Trial Attorneys have defended the rights of such truck accident victims for decades.
