Chicago Aviation Accident Attorney

Although flying has been proven to be one of the safer ways to travel, every year thousands of passengers are injured in crash and non-crash related aviation accidents. A plane does not have to be involved in a crash in order for the passenger to sustain a serious injury while flying; something simple such as an improperly secured piece of luggage or in flight turbulence, could leave the passenger with serious injuries.  Injuries inflicted while flying can cause serious long term damage, forcing the victim to face a long term recovery process and receive costly medical attention.

Your rights as a victim of an aviation accident:     

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has strict safety standards designed to protect passengers of commercial aircraft; when airlines ignore these standards they are neglecting the duty to insure the safety of their passengers.  Due to the complex nature of aviation accidents the responsible party for a aviation accident is not limited to the airline itself, government agencies, airport personnel, and airplane equipment manufacturers can also be found responsible for an aviation accident.  Common causes of aviation accidents include but are not limited to:

•  Aircraft design problems

•  Negligence of flight attendants

•  Negligence of air traffic controllers

•  Pilot Error

•  Poor Equipment Maintenance

•  Third party negligence
