Airplane Accident Claims We Handle
Aviation accident law covers any injury-causing mishap involving an aircraft,
whether commercial or privately-owned. This includes passenger jets, private
planes, and aircraft operated by tour companies. Aircraft such as helicopters,
hang gliders, and hot air balloons also fall under aviation accident law.
Law Offices Cytryn & Velazquez, P.A. handles civil claims related to
airplane accidents involving negligence, product liability, and wrongful
death. We primarily focus on airplane accidents specifically but can also
represent clients who have been injured in other types of aircraft.
Your airplane accident claim will likely fall under one of these three
Negligence: If an individual or entity other than yourself caused the accident which
led to your injuries, you may be able to sue them for compensation. However,
you must be able to prove that whoever caused the accident—pilot,
mechanic, manufacturer, etc.—made a negligent mistake a reasonable
person would not have in the same situation (i.e. drinking on the job).
Product Liability: When a defect in the design or construction of a product causes it to
fail and subsequently results in injury, you may be able to file a claim
against the designer, manufacturer, or distributor.
Wrongful Death: If a loved one of yours has been killed in an airplane accident, you
or another close family member can sue for damages on their behalf. Damages
should cover funeral, burial, medical, and other expenses as well as lost wages.
Aviation accident claims may involve the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) and/or the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and can fall
under federal jurisdiction depending on the nature of the accident. Our
airplane accident lawyers have argued cases in front of the Supreme Court,
so we are equipped to handle your claim regardless of how simple or complex
Aviation Accident Causes
Though the lifetime odds of dying while an aircraft passenger in the United
States were too small to calculate in 2018, 393 people still lost their
lives due to aviation accidents
that year. That’s 393 too many—and an increase from the 347 fatalities in 2017.
Airplane accidents and associated injuries are often caused by:
- Pilot error
- Flight staff negligence
- Communication errors
- Improper maintenance of equipment
- Faulty or defective equipment
- Unsafe weather conditions
An experienced aviation accident lawyer can determine the cause of the
accident by conducting an investigation and collecting evidence. To best
assist with this process and expedite your claim, document and save all
information regarding your injuries, medical treatment, lost earnings,
and other expenses and losses related to your accident.

Aviation accident claims can be complicated, so it is best to have an attorney
on your side—especially if suing a federal agency or commercial
airline. Aviation accidents often involve multiple jurisdictions, so you
may have to file your claim in a state other than where you reside—make
sure to find a lawyer who is licensed where necessary and/or who has experience
with the federal court system.
A lawyer can make the claims process easier and more effective in numerous
ways. They can seek out experts in the aviation field to testify on your
behalf regarding the standards that should have been followed during your
flight, the manufacture of the airplane and its parts, and other relevant
issues. Your lawyer will also help you fill out necessary documentation
correctly and on time, calculate how much compensation you are owed, and
argue for your right to a settlement. Your attorney should also be prepared
to go to trial if necessary.
