Protect Your Rights as an Aviation Accident Victim
Whether you have suffered life-altering injuries or have lost a loved one in a major aircraft catastrophe, you have the right to hold at-fault parties liable for the damages you incurred – including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income or support, emotional injuries, and more.
Given the complex nature of aviation accidents, numerous regulations, and often technical engineering issues, compensation is never guaranteed. That’s especially true when corporations involved in these cases prioritize profits over people and do all they can to pay as little as possible. At Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A., our Fort Lauderdale aviation accident lawyers are committed to providing the level playing field victims need to make their voices heard, and the experienced and unrelenting representation to ensure they receive full and fair compensation.
Airline & Aviation Accident Cases We Handle
Because we focus exclusively on protecting the rights of victims and families, our firm has the depth of experience to handle a range of aviation accident cases, including those involving:
- Commercial Airlines
- Private or chartered jets
- Non-motorized aircraft (hang gliders, etc.)
- Hot air balloons / lighter-than-air-craft
While every personal injury or wrongful death case is unique, our goal is always to hold others accountable for causing preventable harm.
Causes of Preventable Airplane Accidents
All parties involved in aviation – including crew members, commercial airline companies, maintenance crews, or manufacturers who build airplanes, engines, or other aircraft parts – have legal obligations to ensure the safety of passengers. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable, both by government regulators and the victims they’ve harmed.
This includes aviation-related injuries and death caused by a number of negligent, unlawful, or careless factors:
- In-flight incidents (concussions, slip and fall accidents, falling cargo, assaults, etc.)
- Negligent airline operators or employees
- Improper aircraft maintenance
- Safety violations
- Defective products (faulty engines, landing gear failure, etc.)
- Pilot error or negligence
- Air traffic control error
