What to do after an Airplane Crash
We seldom see a major airliner accident mentioned in the news which supports
the industry's statements about the safety of flying. When accidents
do occur the results can be tragic. An aviation accident whether of a
small private plane, helicopter or another can happen for a variety of
reasons bad weather, structural or design problems, pilot error, maintenance
errors, air traffic controller negligence and even contaminated fuel.
If you or a loved one has been in an airplane crash it is crucial that
you get help from an experienced
Los Angeles personal injury attorney.
Airplane Crash Lawyer in Los Angeles
Most air accidents involve general aviation flights which include small
and larger privately owned aircraft. There are two different federal government
agencies which regulate air travel and investigate causes of air accidents
as well as state and local authorities who may become involved. Aviation
law is a complex area of litigation. An air disaster can be brought on
by one malfunction leading to another more serious problem. Because there
can be a number of contributing factors aviation law permits several parties
to be held liable for airplane accidents. Depending upon the nature of
the accident it may be found that the pilot, the plane manufacturer or
designer, maintenance and repair crew, or others may be found responsible.
