Grand Blanc Aviation Accident Lawyers

Consultations Available in Person or By Phone for Clients in Flint

Commercial airline accidents are well publicized tragedies that often cause severe injury or death. Injured passengers and families of deceased passengers can take legal action against the responsible party, including air carriers, insurance companies, and even the FAA, depending on the exact cause of the accident. At Jakeway Injury Law, our aviation attorneys in Grand Blanc represent passengers and their families in Flint and surrounding Michigan communities.

Representation for Aviation Accidents

Aviation accidents often result in severe and catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, broken bones, amputation, and even death. Surviving passengers are often left with injuries that require extensive medical treatment and unable to work. Our Grand Blanc aviation accident lawyers help injured passengers and their families fight for compensation for their damages.

Common causes of aviation accidents include:

  • Problems with aircraft design
  • Failure to perform maintenance
  • Pilot error
  • Air traffic controller error

Unfortunately, airlines, their representatives, and insurance companies frequently attempt to avoid taking responsibility and minimize settlements to passengers and their families. Even if you are offered a settlement, it will most likely be insufficient for the damages you have suffered. Generally, it is in your best interests to seek legal representation from a qualified attorney to ensure that your rights are protected.

Determining Fault in an Aviation Accident

The first step in seeking compensation is to determine the responsible party for the accident. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the cause, there could be a number of parties responsible for aviation accidents.

The responsible party in an aviation accident may include:

  • The owner or operator of an aircraft
  • The commercial airline
  • Airline pilots
  • The manufacturer of the airplane

Due to the complexities of these cases and the variety of parties that may be held liable for an accident, it is important to seek advice from an attorney with specific knowledge of this area of the law. Since 1961, our law firm has represented clients and their families in cases involving aviation accidents. We can evaluate your case and help you determine the responsible party and fight for the compensation you deserve.
