Airline Accident Injury Lawyers
Despite the advances in safety and technology, negligence or mechanical failure continue to result in airline accidents across the United States each year.
Injured In An Airline Accident?
Statistically, air travel is safer than traveling in a motor vehicle. However, when aviation accidents do occur there are typically more fatalities and more serious injuries due to the scale of equipment and the number of people involved. In turn, this leads to a greater number of insurance claims for the parties affected by the aviation accident to face.
The complexity and nature of an airline accident make assigning liability extremely difficult, as well as calculating damages equally challenging. Victims who are represented by an airline accident injury lawyer will almost always receive greater compensation for their losses and injuries than those who attempt to resolve their own claims.
Do I Have A Case?
Insurance companies, attorneys representing the airline, and others involved in the accident will often push for a quick collective settlement when they are at fault or threaten to prolong the process when victims decline to settle.
This is when you need aggressive representation to take on your case.
Washington Law Center’s injury attorneys are well-versed in all facets of aviation law and protocol. They also understand the unfair tactics insurance companies use in these types of cases and we’re ready to help you achieve the fair settlement you deserve.
Should I File A Lawsuit?
If you’re questioning whether or not you have a case, the following are important to consider.
- Did the accident result in damages?
- Did you seek or require medical attention?
- Was law enforcement present at the scene?
- Are you liable for any part of the accident?
Your answers to these questions and further details will help an attorney assess if you have a valid accident injury case from the standpoint of the law.
