Airplane Accident Lawyer Melbourne


Our Melbourne Florida plane crash attorneys at the Injured Brevard have experience and knowledge to help injured victims and families affected by aviation accidents. Commercial and private aircraft passengers log millions of miles of air travel each year. As air traffic increases, so does the risk of accidents.

By their very nature, airplane and aviation industry accidents give rise to some of the most shocking, painful and devastating tragedies imaginable. Aviation accidents are thankfully rare, but they do occur with large, commercial airlines as well as private and charter airplanes. And, of course, aviation accidents are not just limited to plane crashes and other disasters: Injuries to passengers inside planes, and events on and around the tarmac, can also give rise to serious injuries or death.

Aviation lawsuits involve complicated legal and factual issues, from establishing the cause of such accidents, to proving negligence and causation, to legal issues of what law to apply and which courts have jurisdiction.

If you’ve been the victim of an aircraft accident, the lawyers of Injured Brevard ensure that you receive the legal representation you deserve.

Factors Contributing to Airplane Accidents include:

  • Equipment failure or malfunction
  • Aircraft design problems
  • Mistakes by the flight crew, ground crew, or air traffic controllers
  • Poor training of any personnel
  • Communication problems
  • Fires on board
  • Bad weather and severe turbulence
  • Lapses in maintenance
  • Aged aircraft
  • Acts of terrorism and suicide

Significant airplane accidents have happened on the ground. Runway incursions are aircraft accidents occurring on the ground. These types of airplane accidents are caused by factors such as:

  • Air traffic controller error
  • Pilot error
  • Communication errors between pilot(s) and air traffic controller(s)
  • Ground personnel errors

Sometimes an airline, pilot, member of the flight crew, air traffic controller, airport ground personnel, aircraft manufacturer, or other responsible party acts in a negligent or reckless manner. If this negligence or recklessness caused an aircraft accident with injury or death, you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Physical injuries
  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of ability to work
  • Loss of companionship (due to the death of a loved one)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical impairment

Aircraft accident law is very complex, involving state and federal regulations and agencies. Not many law firms are equipped or qualified to represent victims of airplane accidents.
