When a commercial airline has an accident, the results are devastating and tragic. Many lives are lost, and survivors endure horrible physical and emotional injuries and face mounting medical bills and expenses at a time when they are unable to work. Victims and their families should be entitled to compensation, but they face complex legal roadblocks; commercial airlines and their insurance companies often attempt to minimize or deny claims.
At this difficult time, an experienced airline accident attorney can help navigate the maze of laws, international treaties, and obstacles involved in getting justice and a fair settlement. While no amount of money can make up for a tragic airplane accident, fair compensation can relieve the financial burdens for crash victims and their families and help them go on with their lives.

In a successful lawsuit, our airplane accident lawyers may be able to recover an award that covers both economic and noneconomic damages, the losses that resulted from the accident.
Economic damages are for monetary losses that include:
Noneconomic damages are those that do not have a specific dollar value, but negatively impact your life, such as:
There is a wide range of possible settlement amounts for an airline crash, and for serious injuries and deaths, judgments may reach the millions of dollars. The amount you receive depends on factors that include the extent and permanence of the injuries, the degree of fault, any legal restrictions and the individual circumstances of the case. The skill and negotiating ability of your attorney also plays a role.
To win your case, our airplane accident lawyers must prove there was negligence by another party, the defendant in the case. To prove negligence legally, we must show the existence of the following elements:
Commercial carrier airlines have a duty to exercise the highest degree of care and diligence in the safety of their passengers. As a result, there is lower threshold necessary to prove that they were negligent. According to the FAA (FAA FAR 91.3), the pilot in command of an aircraft is directly responsible for the operation of that aircraft and may be liable for a crash if negligent. Other parties that may be held liable include:
Airplane accidents may have multiple potentially negligent parties, and our legal team will seek to identify them all, as they all may have assets and insurance that can go toward a settlement.
