We Have the Experience & Resources to Investigate the Crash & Get Results

Corpus Christi Aviation Accident Lawyers

Representing Victims of Plane Accidents in South Texas & Nationwide

Being in a flight accident is one of the most horrifying experiences an individual can have. Although there have been technological advancements that have made aviation accidents rare, human error and mechanical failures still contribute to crashes throughout Texas and nationwide. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, there were more than 1,500 civil aviation accidents in the U.S. in 2015. Regarding general aviation accidents, there were more than 1,200 accidents and more than 350 fatalities. Regardless of whether you personally suffered an injury or someone close to you died, the recovery process can be daunting. When those responsible for causing the incident refuse to step up and take responsibility for what happened, it can be made even worse.

In most cases, pilots, airlines, and airplane manufacturers do everything they can do deny liability after an accident. They make it difficult for injured victims to receive the compensation and assistance they need to recover from their injuries. In such cases, it is vital to contact an experienced Corpus Christi aviation accident attorney who can help you develop a strong case against powerful companies. The quicker you have legal representation, the more likely we will be able to recover evidence from the crash that supports your case.

We have the skill and experience to fight for maximum compensation for your case. Contact our Corpus Christi aviation attorneys for a free case review: (888) 493-1629!

Standing Up for Victims of Airplane & Helicopter Crashes

Aviation accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but almost all accidents happen because of another person’s negligence. Aviation accidents are complex cases because a variety of parties can be involved. The first step is for us to investigate the accident to determine who is at fault. This investigation may include hiring expert witnesses, poring through thousands of documents, and working parallel with the FAA investigation.

The parties who may be held liable include:

  • Pilot - If the pilot failed to check instructions, respond correctly to weather conditions, or obey the correct takeoff or landing procedures, they could have caused the accident.
  • Mechanic - If the mechanic failed to inspect, maintain, or repair defective equipment adequately, they could have been at fault for the accident.
  • Air traffic controller - It is common for overworked air traffic controllers to violate FAA rules, fail to give timely warnings, or steer aircraft into dangerous flight paths.
  • Manufacturer - Improperly manufactured aircraft parts or designs can also result in major accidents. Common faulty parts include the wings, wheels, and other landing gear.

Our lawyers work tirelessly to prepare every case as if it is headed to trial. This aggressive approach allows our team to go into negotiations or hearings from a position of strength, compelling your adversary to deal with your quickly and fairly. This is what has allowed us to secure billions in verdicts and settlements for our clients.

Common Injuries from Aviation Accidents

Studies have shown that aviation accidents usually result in extremely severe or fatal injuries. Plane crash survivors rarely survive without incurring a life-changing injury, both physically and psychologically.

The following injuries are the most common in aviation accidents:

  • Burn injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Broken bones

The healthcare costs for these injuries are significant and long-term. Most families don't have the resources to cover the medical costs of a plane crash, which is why filing a claim against at-fault parties is so vital. It holds plane companies and airlines accountable, but it also gives you the money you need to survive and move forward.

Aviation Accidents Are Rare But Devastating

Since the first commercial airplane took flight in 1914, we have had over a century to perfect this form of travel. Although this is one of the safest ways of travel, when an accident does occur, it is usually catastrophic. For that reason, it is vital to have strong legal representation if you have been injured in an aviation accident.
