Airplane and Aviation Accident Lawyers

We have extensive experience handling airplane accident cases and several types of aviation disasters.

Airplane accidents include accidents that occur on the aircraft itself, accidents while changing planes, as well as accidents while getting on or off the airplane. With respect to international flights, various treaties such as the Warsaw Convention might apply.

The airplane accident lawyers in our firm have represented the families of crash victims involving Japan Air Lines, Lloyd Aerolinas Bolivianos, American Airlines, and Arrow Air. We have also handled claims involving helicopters and small aircraft. Under certain circumstances, admiralty and maritime law can apply in air crash situations. For example, if an airplane goes down over the high seas or into a navigable body of water, federal acts involving admiralty and maritime law have applied.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury while on a commercial or private aircraft, Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman are on your side. Whether the accident occurred while on a flight or at an airport, trust that we will protect your rights. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing victims of airplane and personal aircraft accidents, and will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your aviation accident in order to help you and your loved ones obtain the justice you disserve.

Understanding Aviation Accidents and Your Rights

Airplane and any other type of aviation accidents are among some of the most dangerous types of accidents victims can suffer. These types of accidents can involve both private aircrafts, including chartered planes and private helicopters, as well as commercial airliners and military aircrafts. Regardless of the type of aircraft involved in the incident, it’s important for victims and their families to understand that legal assistance can be sought.

Many airline and aviation accidents are the result of negligence. Some common reasons why aviation accidents occur include mechanical failure, pilot error, safety inspection oversights, and oversized cargo storage. Accidents can also occur due to the airline or charter company’s failure to properly oversee flight operations, failure to properly review information regarding an aircraft’s safety components, as well as failure to investigate hired personnel.

Sadly, these types of accidents often end with the most tragic outcome imaginable. Hundreds of passengers, pilots, crew, and even bystanders have suffered life-threatening injuries or have been killed in airline disasters. Luckily, help can be sought with an experienced aviation accident lawyer.
