Aviation is central to modern life. We often take for granted the speed and convenience of air travel. While air travel is statistically safer than by automobile, when accidents do happen, the consequences can be severe. Commercial, private, military, and government airplanes, in addition to helicopters, are regularly involved in accidents, many resulting in serious injury or death.
When aviation accidents occur, those affected need an experienced aviation lawyer to navigate the highly technical and complicated laws and regulations that apply. There are a number of reasons that aviation accident cases are more complicated than a traditional automobile accident. First, aviation is highly regulated, and as aircraft travel often occurs over state, even national borders, different bodies of law can come into play.
Further, the scope of people involved in any given flight, including pilots, air-traffic controllers, maintenance crews, aircraft owners, and passengers, is quite broad. With so many people involved, determining liability in an aviation accident can be a difficult task. Finally, aviation accidents often result in injuries to multiple persons, sometimes large groups of victims.
Regardless of the cause or the carrier, our San Antonio aviation attorneys will handle every step of the legal process following an aviation accident.
