If you, a family member or friend has been injured in an aviation accident and you need a lawyer...turn to Kimmel Carter.
Kimmel Carter represents clients in and around Delaware that have suffered personal injuries or lost family members in aviation accidents. Although aviation accidents are relatively infrequent, serious injuries, and even death, can result. Injuries can occur without an airplane crashing, such as during turbulence, and can also occur before take-off or after landing.
Most aviation accidents are caused by human error or mechanical difficulties, such as:
- Pilot Errors or Intoxication
- Maintenance Failure
- Negligence of Employees, such as Air Traffic Controllers and Flight Attendants
- Defective Equipment
- Aircraft Structural Design Problems
- Conduct in Violation of FAA Regulations
Commercial airlines and private charter companies are considered “common carriers,” and as such owe passengers a heightened duty of care under the law. Aircraft companies must ensure that their passengers are safe during travel. When an accident occurs, many individuals can be held responsible: pilots, airplane owners, pilots’ employers, various airline employees, or manufacturers of airplane component parts.
If you were injured as a passenger in an airplane accident, or are the relative a passenger who is killed, you are entitled to bring a lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys have the requisite understanding of all of the specialized issues involved in an aviation accident case. We will evaluate your situation and help you bring a successful claim against the responsible parties.
