Airplane Accidents

Airplane Accidents

Commercial aviation accidents are among the most tragic and high profile of all modern disasters. Commercial airlines are considered “common carriers,” and the Federal government has enacted laws regarding the liability to passengers injured while using a common carrier. A common carrier is one that advertises to the public that it is in the business of transporting persons or cargo from place to place for compensation. Generally, commercial buses, ferries, trains, and airplanes are considered common carriers. When crashes occur, lawsuits often arise where the negligence of others appears to be a contributing cause of the accident. The litigation surrounding airplane crashes is often complex and unique. In order to prove negligence or product defect, RobertsMiceli LLP will undertake an exhaustive review of all factors involved in the accident.
