Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Aviation Accident Law Firm MarylandIf you or someone you love has been in an accident in Maryland or in the surrounding states, that involved some sort of aircraft, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with an aviation accident law firm Maryland aviation accident victims and their families recommend.

Are All Aircraft Airplanes?

The answer to this question is, no, because there are many different machines that are considered aircraft. An aircraft is any machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air. These machines are typically capable of using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil to counter the force of gravity. Some aircraft use the downward thrust from jet engines but these are not as common.

Common examples of aircraft include but are not limited to:

  • airplanes (including private planes, charter jets and commercial airlines)
  • helicopters
  • airships (including blimps)
  • gliders
  • hot air balloons

The human activity that surrounds aircraft is called aviation. This includes unmanned aircraft that are controlled by humans on the ground as well as aircraft that are flown by on-board pilots and operators.

Compensation for Aviation Accidents

Even though it is said that it is safer to be a passenger in a commercial airline plane than it is to be a passenger in a private automobile, when accidents involving commercial airplanes do occur they are often catastrophic. Accidents involving small airplanes and helicopters are more common and can be just as devastating to the people who are affected by it. When someone is injured in an aviation accident because of another party or parties negligence, he or she may be entitled to compensation. When an innocent person tragically dies in an aviation accident, the negligent party or parties who caused the accident may be liable to the victim’s surviving family members.

Compensation for aviation accidents is typically sought by the victim through a personal injury claim against the negligent party or parties who caused, or contributed to causing, the accident. Many people find it much easier and less stressful to do this with the help of an aviation accident law firm Maryland travelers can rely on. One of the many reasons people recommend having a lawyer on your side is because personal injury cases very often involve powerful insurance companies that have a wealth of resources that they will use to try to pay out as little compensation as they can get away with even though a victim and their family may be entitled to more and truly need it.

Common reasons that aviation accident victims and their families seek compensation for include but are not limited to:

  • Loss of wages
  • Medical bills (including emergency services, hospitalizations, doctor
    visits, surgeries, treatments, etc.)
  • Prescription and over the counter medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Emotional or cognitive therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of abilities
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Projected medical costs
  • Funeral and burial or cremation costs
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Pain and grieving

If you or someone you love has been in an aviation accident, you may find it beneficial to discuss your situation with an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands how to fight the oftentimes, complicated legal battles involved in seeking compensation for aviation accident victims and their families.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
