Assisted by the firm's well trained staff members and investigators, our experienced trial attorneys have handled complex aviation cases successfully. We understand it takes meticulous preparation and careful examination of the surrounding facts and evidence to identify both the causes of an aircraft crash and the negligent acts on the part of pilots, manufacturers, air traffic controllers and others responsible for the crash.
The causes of aviation disasters are numerous and often complex. An aircraft manufacturer may have negligently designed or assembled an airplane part or component. Pilot error may have contributed to or caused a crash. An airplane mechanic may have negligently failed to find or correctly repair a faulty part. Sometimes negligent pre-flight inspections of the aircraft or negligent flight plans are to blame. Air traffic controller mistakes or ground personnel errors may cause runway incursions including collisions between taxiing aircraft. With the help of knowledgeable and well-credentialed experts, the lawyers at Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen have the know-how to sort through the evidence and piece together the facts which explain why and how a crash occurred.
Aircraft accidents resulting in death or serious injury are not unusual. Contrary to popular belief, most airplane crash fatalities and injuries occur in small, non-commercial plane accidents rather than in the more highly publicized crashes involving big commercial jetliners. Small private aircraft can be more vulnerable to dangerous weather conditions. Private owners may not properly or adequately inspect, maintain, or repair their planes and associated equipment. The Allen Law Firm's lawyers have experience representing victims and family members in cases arising out of small private plane crashes as well as commercial airline accidents.
The federal government considers commercial jets and propeller airplanes which transport persons or cargo for compensation to be common carriers. The activities of common carriers are controlled by federal laws and regulations which generally hold them to a higher standard of care than private parties or entities which own and operate smaller aircraft. The lawyers at Allen and Allen know the aviation law and regulations that apply in cases involving both common carriers and general aviation (private) aircraft. They can explain the impact that relevant federal law and regulations may have in your case.
