Confidential and Fast Results
Every year, thousands of individuals board airplanes in order to go on vacation, to visit friends and family, or to go on business trips. We also commonly travel on private airplane charters, and those pilots and facilities are also held to the highest aviation standards. Under most circumstances, they reach their destinations quickly and painlessly, experiencing little more than mild turbulence. However, on rare occasions, airplane malfunction, pilot error, poor security, or other causes can turn routine travel into a dangerous undertaking.
If a private charter, or its employees, or an airline have been negligent or reckless in any way that has caused their passengers harm they may be sued for the cost of that harm and for punitive damages. In the event that the negligence caused the victim’s death, surviving family members may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
We have handled a number of aviation cases, and if you would like more information, please contact us.
