How It Works

Step One: Free Case Evaluation & Agreement

To get started, contact us to schedule a free case evaluation. Not only will we patiently review your case, but we will also provide an estimate for our legal services. Once we reach an agreement, we will draft up a contract and ask you and any parties involved to sign it.

Step Two: Explain Losses and/or Injuries

To get a better understanding of your case, we will speak with you about the losses and/or injuries that you or your loved ones have sustained.

Commonly, injuries sustained from an airplane crash can include those to the head, neck, and limbs, as well as internal damage. In the case of a fire or loss of cabin pressure, those can also lead to respiratory injuries and/or burns as well. It is not uncommon for those who have survived an airplane crash to experience strokes or heart attacks from problems in the air, as well.

We ask that you prepare as much as you can in the way of medical records and symptoms, as we can use this to help build your case, and help you receive compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.

Step Three: Discovering What Caused the Accident

Next, we our team will begin building your case by working alongside agencies like the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and consulting to help identify whether a part on the aircraft caused the crash, what the condition of the plane was, and if it is believed to have been an error caused by the pilot or natural conditions.

Research shows that pilot error is responsible for up to half of all plane crashes, but other contributing factors can include:

  • Poor weather conditions
  • Visibility problems due to a storm or ice
  • Mechanical failure

Step Four: Finding out Who Is at Fault

Not just to ease the mind of those involved and affected by a plane or helicopter crash, but to also prevent future incidents, the next part of the case is to identify who is at fault for the accident.

Most commonly, airlines are found to be responsible for plane crashes and all resulting injuries. We will also file a negligence claim against an airline if the crash was caused by maintenance deficiencies or pilot error.

Suppliers of plane components and parts can also be held responsible. This is especially true if human injuries were caused by their defective products, including:

  • Defective designs
  • Manufacturing process errors
  • Failure to warn passengers about manufacturing dangers

From our perspective, responsibility is the cornerstone of our case. This helps us to figure out who should be held accountable for any damages.

Step Five: Receiving Compensation for Your Loss

The final step in your aviation crash case is receiving compensation for your loss. Sometimes, plane crashes involve extensive damages and severe injuries, both of which often lead to intense lawsuits.

From pilot error to wrongful death lawsuits, family and victims can receive millions of dollars in compensation. Many airlines also offer some form of monetary compensation of their own accord as well. Although international flights are governed by different laws, you might be eligible to receive $150,000 per victim lost.

How Much Will It Cost to Handle My Plane Crash Case?

In wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits, it’s common for you to pay what is called a contingent legal fee. However, under our protective agreement, you will not have to pay an hourly rate for services from our aviation accident attorneys.

Instead, you will compensate your attorney for their time with a preset percentage of the settlement amount that you receive. Of course, this percentage will change depending on the exact circumstances of your case.If you sign up for a contingent fee agreement, we do not get paid unless you do. That means no financial settlement, no attorney fees.

Moving forward, the law firm that you have teamed up with will typically take care of all out-of-pocket expenses too. However, we do reserve the right to receive reimbursement for these expenses at the beginning or the conclusion of your case.
