Every day countless people board our nation’s many aircraft to reach their destination more quickly compared to ground transportation. Saving time is one of the many key benefits of choosing to fly and in most cases, is fairly safe. However, despite the strict regulations set by the FAA, many aviation accidents still take place. Due to the altitude in which these aircraft fly at the speeds they travel with and the explosive nature of high octane jet fuel, many aviation accidents leave victims with catastrophic injuries or tragically end their lives.

Our top trial injury lawyers have the skills and resources needed to take on these large airline corporations and will work with you to make your case a success.

Aviation Negligence

Companies that own and operate aircraft are required by strict federal laws to keep their craft safe to the many patrons who fly each day. When these large corporations cut corners or employ workers who engage in negligent conduct, then they can be held liable for the injuries and fatalities that such actions cause. Examples of negligence that can contribute to Alabama aviation accidents, but not strictly limited to, include:

  • Improper Maintenance
  • Manufacturing Mistakes
  • Pilot / Operator Inattention
  • Miscommunication
  • Pilot Error

The result of the negligent conduct of a pilot, employee, or corporation can be the sudden and catastrophic injury of passengers — or worse, the wrongful death of many aboard the aircraft. According to reports filed by the Aircraft Crashes Record Office (ACRO), there were 1,115 people killed in 130 aviation accidents last year.

Extensive Investigative Resources

Airline companies often have vast resources to back their claims in court that their employees did not cause the planes they own and operate to crash. Due to this, you will need a dedicated team of aviation accident lawyers experienced in the laws and regulations of aviation law to back your claims as a victim in court. Here at the law office of Wettermark & Keith, our expert trial lawyers have over 30 years of experience fighting for the rights of victims in these cases.
