Injuries From An Aviation Accident Do Not Have to Take Everything

Plane and helicopter crashes do not happen often. Unfortunately, when they do, they often involve fatalities. Families are left wondering about the cause of the aviation accident and anxious about their financial future.

If you were injured or lost a loved one in a helicopter or plane crash, get answers. Talk to a Charlotte aviation accident injury lawyer at the law firm of DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A. One of our partners, attorney Fred DeVore III, is a former private pilot who understands federal aviation regulations.

Responsibility And Accountability

The legal team at our personal injury law firm will work with investigators and aviation accident experts to try and determine the facts behind the crash to establish financial liability. We will not rest until we have had all of our questions answered, including:

  • Who was the pilot in command at the time of the crash? Were there any licensure issues or chemical abuse issues? Was his/her training up to date? Was he/she properly trained to fly this type of aircraft?
  • Were there mechanical failures, an engine failure, rotor failure or avionics failure? If so, who handled the maintenance of the plane? Was all necessary maintenance done? Had the plane passed its most recent inspection?
  • Were there problems with an air traffic controller who contributed to a midair collision?
  • Were there airport maintenance problems that contributed to a runway crash?

When fault for an aviation accident has been established, the next step is to determine the extent of your family’s losses so that you can begin to be compensated.

We Will Paint A Full Picture Of Your Injuries

If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries, we will work with medical and rehabilitation experts to understand the full extent of injuries and the medical care that will be needed today and into the future. Any financial recovery should also include lost wages and any future loss of earnings if you or a loved one is unable to return to work.

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal airplane crash, we can file a wrongful death claim in an attempt to compensate your family for the loss of future earnings and for the costs of replacing the services to your family that your loved one provided, for which you must now hire outside help. We will work closely with you to document the many financial and nonfinancial contributions your loved one made to the household.
