Injuries from Plane Accidents
Injuries from a plane accident can occur due a variety of causes. It's possible that the injuries you sustained were due to the negligence of the manufacturer or your plane, the pilot, the maintenance crew, or even the flight attendants. You may have suffered injuries because of the following:
- Defective airplane parts -- oftentimes, when a plane malfunctions, it is determined that a part of the plane was defective. If this is the case, our Boynton Beach attorney can help you file a suit against the manufacturer of the plane.
- Pilot error or negligence -- if a pilot is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, isn't paying attention while flying, or doesn't properly warn passengers of upcoming turbulence or other hazards, he/she may be liable for the injuries you've sustained.
- Lack of proper maintenance -- if you suffered an injury because your plane wasn't properly maintained or inspected, our attorney can help you seek damages from the company in charge of the plane's maintenance.
- Negligence on the part of the flight attendants -- flight attendants have a responsibility to keep you safe and uninjured during your flight. This means flight attendants must make sure that trays, carts, and luggage are properly secured so they don't move during a flight, causing injury.
