Today, we live in a global economy. Travel is a necessary part of our personal and professional lives. With over 1.73 million passengers boarding airplanes in the U.S. each day, accidents are inevitable. Although the skies are considered safer than our highways, as our rate of travel increases so does the risk of aviation accidents resulting in serious bodily injury and death.
Although commercial airline accidents are rare, a commercial airline accident will constitute an aviation accident. Additionally, helicopter accidents, medevac/air ambulance accidents, international airplane accidents, charter plane accidents are all common aviation accidents. Are you not sure whether your accident constitutes an aviation accident? Call our office today for a FREE 30 minute consultation.
At times passengers suffer serious physical or emotional injuries resulting from the conditions of the airplane. When an airline or employees on the aircraft fail to perform their duties to keep passengers safe, the airline and employees may be considered negligent. Further, an airline may be responsible for accidents that occur before takeoff. For example, an airline may be liable when a passenger slips and falls while boarding the plane or when a passenger is injured by luggage or food service carts stored in the passenger compartment.
Every aviation accident is unique. At Harrison Barnes, A Professional Law Corporation, we will thoroughly investigate your claim and retain experts to review evidence and perform site inspections. Depending on the facts of your accident, there are a number of potential parties that are liable, including but not limited to, the airline, pilots, flight crew, owner of the aircraft, aircraft designers, aircraft manufacturers, mechanics, and even air traffic controllers.
