Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Aviation Accident Law Firm Washington DCEven though aviation accidents are not common in Washington DC and the surrounding areas, there is a need for an aviation accident law firm Washington DC travelers can rely on.

When someone in the United States is injured because of someone else’s negligence, he or she may be entitled to compensation from the party or parties that caused or contributed to their injuries. An injured person can do this through a personal injury claim that can be filed in a civil court in the jurisdiction that the injury occurred. Many people who have been in aviation accidents or are close to someone who is, find it best to do this with the help of a personal injury law firm that is experienced with the laws and regulations that govern aviation in the United States.

Kinds of Aviation Accidents

An aviation accident is an accident that involves an aircraft. Victims of aviation accidents can be people who were in an aircraft that crashed as well as people who are on the ground and injured as a result of the accident.

According to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, an aviation accident is an occurrence associated with the operation of an aircraft, which takes place between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight until all such person have disembarked, where a person is fatally or seriously injured; and where the aircraft sustains damage or structural failure or the aircraft is missing or completely inaccessible. Annex 13 of this convention further defines an aviation incident as an occurrence, other than an accident, associated with the operation of an aircraft which affects or could affect the safe operation of the aircraft.

If you or someone you love has been in an aviation accident, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with an aviation accident law firm Washington DC community members recommend. Aviation accidents include accidents involving:

  • Commercial airlines
  • Private planes
  • Chartered jets
  • Any aircraft that carries at least one person, including helicopters

Examples of Causes of Aviation Accidents

There are many different kinds of aviation accidents that an injured victim may be entitled to compensation for. Some common causes of aviation accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Pilot error/negligence
  • Two or more aircraft colliding
  • One aircraft forcing another aircraft off of its course or causing a pilot or an
    auto-pilot to lose control of the aircraft
  • Inadequate aircraft maintenance
  • Defective parts
  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Takeoff and landing accidents
  • In flight accidents with an aircraft and another object such as a building or
    telephone wires, etc.

Compensation for Aviation Accidents

Injured victims of aviation accidents and families of deceased aviation accident victims may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim that can be filed in a civil court. Many expenses can arise from an aviation accident and the victim and their family, and they should not be responsible for these if they are not his or her fault. Many people find it much easier to seek compensation with the help of a personal injury law firm that understands the complications of aviation accident cases.

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.
