New Braunfels Airplane Crash Lawyer

Helping People With Injuries on Airplanes in Comal, Hays, and Guadalupe Counties

While flying is still one of the safest modes of transportation, there are many hazards that passengers and pilots alike face each day. Airplane accidents include not only crashes but also incidents that happen on airplanes and cause injuries, such as falling baggage, assaults, etc. Regardless of how the injury occurs, any personal injury cases involving airplanes require an experienced attorney. Incidents involving airplanes or other aircraft are covered by several complicated federal, international, and state laws, which is why it so important to have a strong attorney on your side.

At The Bettersworth Law Firm, we have a successful history representing passengers and crew injured on commercial airliners, as well as corporate and private jets and helicopters. We offer free initial consultations to prospective clients across the U.S., and we do all personal injury work on contingency, charging no attorney's fees unless we recover compensation.

Types of Aviation Accidents

Our Texas aviation lawyer knows first-hand that aviation accidents are more common than most people realize. Types of accidents that can cause injuries to passengers and crew members include:

  • Crashes and collisions
  • Accidents occurring on the runway and during transport to and from planes
  • Accidents due to air traffic control errors and miscommunication
  • Shifting baggage during flight
  • Pilot or crew negligence
  • Faulty mechanics
  • Poor security
  • Unsafe standards

Following an aviation accident, it is essential to perform a complete investigation to determine the causes and identify the liable parties. These investigations require a robust knowledge of the safety issues that can affect airplanes and other aircraft. An attorney with an understanding of the applicable laws and regulations can determine whether any violations occurred, whether parts broke down or were installed incorrectly, or whether the proper safety procedures were not followed.

Multiple parties may be liable for injuries in aviation accidents. When crashes, collisions, or other incidents are caused by defective equipment, the manufacturer of an airplane or its parts may be responsible. An airline company may be liable for failing to perform the proper maintenance or inspections and ensure that a plane or helicopter was fully operational and safe to fly. When accidents occur due to pilot error, the pilot or their employer may be liable for negligence. In incidents involving violence on planes, an airport, an airline's employees, or security personnel may be responsible for failing to protect people's safety.

We are proficient in the complex field of aviation litigation, and we are fully prepared to handle cases from the beginning through the settlement that best fits you and your family's needs. We have the skills and resources to take on any size aviation company. With our understanding of the causes of aviation accidents and our ability to identify the liable parties, we can ensure that you will be fully compensated for the harm you have suffered.
