NYC Plane Accident Lawyer

When an aviation accident occurs, serious injuries and losses are sure to occur. Find out how to get compensated by working with an NYC plane accident lawyer.

Plane accidents are some of the most terrifying experiences you can ever live through. While not as common as other types of transportation wrecks, plane accidents can lead to catastrophic and often fatal injuries, leaving you and your family with a lifetime of pain and medical costs.

Injuries suffered in a plane crash can cause debilitating and life-threatening injuries to those who have survived. Because aviation accidents are most frequently caused by human and mechanical error, your accident likely could have been avoided, meaning that someone is responsible.

To recover full compensation for your injuries and losses, an NYC plane accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP will help you through the process and onto a successful conclusion for your claim.

Common Causes of Plane Crashes

Plane accidents are often preventable, and when those responsible for your safety fail to exercise reasonable care, accidents and injuries will happen. Seeking compensation for injuries you sustained is your right when negligence is the cause.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says that human error is the number one cause of plane crashes. Common reasons that your NYC plane accident lawyer will need to consider during the investigation include all of the following:

  • Pilot error
  • Poor decisions by air traffic controllers and ground workers
  • Defective equipment
  • Poor maintenance
  • Lack of training
  • Operating a plane in dangerous weather conditions

Plane Accidents and Liability

Seeking compensation for a plane accident is often complicated because many different parties are involved in operating aircraft.

Additionally, the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigate all aviation crashes, so knowledge of how these agencies work is crucial in your lawsuit. A lawyer from our firm will have experience with these agencies and understand the legalities involved.

Pursuing compensation for your injuries is necessary to pay for your recovery. Determining cause and fault is the basis for your case against the responsible person or parties, which may include any of the following:

  • Airline companies
  • Pilots
  • Parts manufacturers
  • Third party contractors
  • Maintenance companies

Recovering Compensation

After we prove cause and fault, the next step is determining the value of your claim by examining all your losses. This includes your monetary damages as well as your lost quality of life:

  • Lost Wages, Earning Potential, and Benefits – Money for lost wages, future potential earnings, or a deceased victim’s benefits and earnings
  • Medical Bills and Funeral and Burial Expenses – Money for your current and future medical treatment or funeral expenses for a deceased crash victim
  • Loss of Companionship – If your injuries interfere with your marriage or personal relationships
  • Pain, Suffering, and Emotional Distress – You can seek damages for your pain, suffering, and emotional distress that have negatively impacted your quality of life
