We all know that flying is the safest form of travel, especially on commercial airlines.  It’s much safer than riding in a car or crossing the street!  Aviation accidents are rare, but when they happen, there are often few to no survivors, so it’s very sad news.  Aviation law is complicated, with many potential defendants, so you need New York City Aviation Attorneys with a great deal of experience.

COMMERCIAL AIRLINER LITIGATION

Not all aviation accidents are plane crashes.  There are also accidents on the ground and in-flight that are short of a catastrophe.  People can be injured on jetways, when luggage is not stowed properly or when drink carts are not used correctly.  Even more “run-of-mill” aviation accidents involve law and regulations from The National Aviation Safety Board which are complex.  This is why you need New York City Aviation Attorneys with a wealth of experience.

When a plane crashes, there are many possible defendants and several concurrent investigations, as there may be claims are the airline, the manufacturers, and sub-contractors.  It can take a very long time to ascertain the cause of the crash.  There are many laws in play, sometimes involving not just State and Federal Law, but also International Law and the laws of foreign countries.

SMALL CRAFT ACCIDENTS

Small plane accidents happen every day and are not always catastrophic.   There are many emergency landings, harsh turbulence, and other incidents that cause injuries without a crash.  Commuter planes and “air taxis,” that transport less than 30 people are the most accident-prone.  There is a completely different set of law and regulations for small craft than commercial airlines.  To successfully bring these actions, you need the help of experienced New York City Aviation Attorneys.

MEDICAL HELICOPTERS AND AIR AMBULANCES

These life-saving transports have many accidents as they are often flown in adverse conditions when regular flights would be canceled, in an effort to bring victims to medical facilities.  The pilots are highly trained, but due to the conditions of flight, fatal accidents are quite common.  For these crashes, determining negligence is quite challenging, because the actions of the pilot must be weighed against the goal of saving the life of the person being transported.  You need very experienced New York City Aviation Attorneys to bring these cases.

HELICOPTERS – CHARTER, SIGHTSEEING AND LOCAL TRANSPORT

Nothing is more spectacular than the view of The Grand Canyon and other natural wonders from a helicopter.  Rather than sit in traffic for hours, people can choose to take (a very expensive) 15-minute helicopter ride from Manhattan to The Hamptons.  There are many safety precautions used for these sightseeing flights, including severe restrictions on wind speed and other weather concerns that often ground them.

Unfortunately, the safety standards for this type of transport more are much laxer than for Commercial Aviation, Small Craft or Medical Transport.  These tiny craft are often flown by pilots with limited experience, and these tiny craft are very vulnerable to sudden changes in weather conditions.  Unlike Commercial Aviation, this is a very dangerous form of travel, not for the faint of heart.  If you or somebody in your family has been killed or injured in a helicopter accident, please feel free to call New York City Aviation Attorneys, Wittenstein & Wittenstein.  We’re here to help.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Low Impact Collisions
