Who is Responsible?
Unfortunately, there are various forms of negligence that can cause a plane to crash. Some of the most common causes of oversight that may lead to an aviation accident include the following:
- Piloting errors
- Faulty equipment
- Violations of FAA regulations
- Design or structural problems
- Flight service negligence
- Air traffic controller error
- Third party carrier selection negligence
- Maintenance or repair negligence
- Fueling error
Whether the accident caused by recklessness took place in a one-engine plane, cargo plane, or a propeller plane, the rights of you and your family deserve to be upheld.
How Much Money Will I Get From My Lawsuit?
Generally, an injured person may be compensated for medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages. In a wrongful death claim, family members may also be compensated for funeral expenses, loss of love and companionship, and loss of future earnings. California law limits the amount of money damages that can be recovered. After a plane or helicopter accident, an attorney can help better your chances of maximizing your benefits by building the best strategy for your case.
