What Does an Aviation Attorney Do?

An aviation attorney’s job is to make sure their client is compensated correctly for any damages they’ve faced in an aviation accident.

One of the most surprising things we find in the thousands of conversations we have every year is how little insurance wants to offer their clients. On average, we find that insurance undervalues claims by 2 to 100 times what we get for our client. It’s a broad spectrum, but it proves a point.

Most people don’t understand how badly insurance is setting them up for the future.

Personal injury attorneys great gifts aren’t in providing mass amounts of money for no cause. It is in guiding individuals through insurance law, getting their clients the best medical treatment and making sure insurance pays what they owe. Even in the accidents that feel minor, there are long term needs that could come up.

What to Consider When Choosing an Aviation Accident Lawyer

These three characteristics are a must-have for a aviation accident attorneys:

Know Their Results

Find a personal injury attorney who has a history of winning cases like yours. These attorneys will understand your type of plane crash, the losses suffered and the impact on those affected. Additionally, the right attorney will understand medical needs and the impact of this type of devastating crash on a family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Sue an Airline for Crashing?

Yes, you can sue an airline for crashing.

After an airline accident, there are a number of losses that a passenger or their family can suffer that are called damages. Damages is the phrase used in the insurance industry to understand what the insurance company needs to pay for. Damages could be anything from a serious injury to a wrongful death. How much money being paid out by insurance is dependent upon the damages.

After a plane crash, an airline’s insurance company will be responsible for taking care of any damages based on their failure to operate their plane. It is up to the passengers of the plane or the members of their families to make a claim to get paid for their damages. Normally, when people interact with insurance companies, they do not know how to calculate, document and prove the damages that have taken place in an airline accident.

When you sue for an aviation accident, you are telling an insurance company that they owe more than what they are offering. How much you get all depends upon the damages you or your personal injury attorney can prove.

What Does an Aviation Accident Mean?

An aviation accident is an occurrence in which an airplane sustains structural damage or failure OR it is an event in which at least one person dies or faces serious injuries.


Do Airlines Compensate for Crashes?

In specific instances, yes, they are legally required to.

In 1999, a treaty regarding international flights was adopted by the United Nations. This treaty, formed at the Montreal Convention guaranteed passengers compensation for crashes.

Since that time, airlines have worked hard to limit how much passengers can be compensated. If it can be proven that an airline did not take all required precautions for a flight; there is no limit to what a victim can recover.

If you’re the victim of an airplane crash, please contact us today at (321) 723-6591 to discuss how you can be compensated for your losses.
