Whether Montana residents are frequent flyers on commercial or private planes, it is likely that they have relied on an aircraft to get to a destination more than once in their life. While the likelihood of being involved in a plane crash is very rare, the fact is that when an aircraft accident does occur, it is often an incident that results in great tragedy. Serious injuries, severe damages and fatalities are often involved in a plane accident, and those impacted by the incident might seek to hold a negligent party responsible for the incident.
Our law firm understands that an aviation accident is often considered to be shocking and tragic. Many do not expect to be involved in such a horrific incident, and those suffering from such an incident often endure physical, emotional, mental and financial damages. Because the burdens and damages associated with an aviation accident are often tremendous, victims and their loved ones might file a civil action to recover compensation.
The cause of a plane crash might be complex to uncover; however, our attorneys are knowledgeable of the applicable laws that could hold a negligent pilot or airline liable. These matters often include civil actions such as personal injury claims and wrongful death suits, but they could also include products liability claims. While pilot error could have caused or contributed to the plane accident, it is also possible that faulty parts or an unmaintained aircraft could have triggered the crash.
Our law firm has years of experience helping clients successfully navigate aviation accident claims. We have worked on incidents involving corporate jets, privately owned aircrafts and helicopters. Additionally, we are knowledgeable of FFA standards, and work hard to determine whether they were properly complied with.
Because the cause of an aviation accident can range greatly, it is important to understand what evidence could prove fault and liability. To learn more, check out our aviation accident website.
