Airplane And Aviation Crashes
Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner helps victims of airplane accidents recover compensation for their injuries and losses.
While large airline disasters are uncommon, the tragedy they cause is extensive. Smaller airplane crashes, however, are much more common than most people realize.
Experienced in handling aircraft litigation, our Houston, Texas, airplane accident attorneys are prepared to handle airplane accident cases involving single-engine planes, multi-engine planes, turbo prop planes, chartered jets and helicopters, and large commercial airplane crashes.
Understanding Liability In Airplane Crash Cases
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is responsible for investigating aviation accidents in the United States as well as accidents in foreign countries that involve U.S. airlines. The NTSB’s responsibility is to provide a probable cause for airplane accidents. This is not necessarily sufficient to prove legal liability.
Our airplane crash attorneys have significant experience using the NTSB’s probable cause finding as a basis for creating legal liability. Because airplane accident litigation is as complex as it is expensive, it is of the utmost importance to hire a law firm with the proven skill, experience and resources to successfully resolve complicated cases where more than one party may be at fault.
Our lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of Department of Transportation and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules that govern commercial, charter and private aviation (including Part 135 and Part 91). Additionally, our firm has experience dealing with the extensive documentation necessary to establish liability for airplane crashes beyond the probable cause finding of the NTSB.
