Louisiana Aviation Accident Attorneys

Plane & Helicopter Accident Lawyers in Louisiana

The emotional and physical tolls of aviation accidents are devastating, subjecting survivors and their families to a lifetime of struggle. Unlike most motor vehicle accidents, the nature of aviation means accidents—whether on the tarmac or in the air—almost always cause long-term harm. The speed, scale, and rigors of air travel can lead to serious injuries even in seemingly modest accidents. Crashes rarely result in anything less than massive loss of life. Though air travel is the safest way to fly statistically, it also has the highest stakes. 

Consequently, seeking to hold an employer or company liable for an aviation accident is exceedingly complex. Claims have to navigate multiple federal regulatory or investigative agencies as well as take on the high-powered insurance companies behind large air travel companies. But when people's lives are on the line, our Louisiana aviation accident lawyers can do nothing less.

What Are Aviation Accidents?

Aviation accidents, speaking broadly, are any accident involving the aviation industry. These include obvious examples like plane crashes, helicopter accidents, and other disastrous incidents. However, aviation accidents can also involve incidents on the tarmac, at the airport, or with the delivery of air freight. 

In other words, “aviation accidents” encompass a broad category that includes:

  • Commercial airline crashes
  • Private jet mishaps
  • Helicopter accidents
  • Incidents involving smaller aircraft like gliders or drones
  • Work accidents at the airport
  • Accidents involving the handling of air freight

Common injuries from such accidents may range from burns, fractures, and spinal injuries to severe emotional trauma. Due to the often catastrophic nature of these accidents, the resulting injuries are typically more life-altering than those found in car accidents or slip-and-fall incidents.

Why You Need an Aviation Accident Lawyer

Aviation accidents are complicated. They often involve multiple federal authorities, bureaucratic obstacles, and several regulatory codes, including federal aviation regulations and international treaties. To make matters more challenging, multiple parties—such as airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and air traffic controllers—could potentially be held responsible.

Due to the complex nature of aviation accidents, the legal and compensation processes are often intricate, involving:

  • Federal aviation laws
  • Investigation by authorities
  • Liability issues
  • Compensation claims
