While air travel is safer than highway traffic, there are still about 2,000 aircraft accidents every year. In the worst cases, planes crash and people die. But there are numerous other accidents in which people are injured but survive.
Conlin Law Firm, LLC, represents the interests of persons injured in a variety of situations, including commercial jet flights, personal aircraft, charter airplanes, business jets, military aircraft airplane, and medical transport planes and helicopters. We also represent persons injured in accidents occurring on the ground, at airports and terminals.
Air disasters are the result of various factors: pilot error, bad weather, mechanical failure, or other human error or misbehavior.
Injuries May Include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Any person injured in an aviation accident is entitled to seek compensation for injuries and other damages — medical costs, rehabilitation, loss of income, disability and disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Pain and suffering includes post-traumatic stress, which is very common in such circumstances.
In addition, the courts may choose to award punitive damages, as a way to punish the responsible party's conduct.
