Today, it is said that riding in a car can be even more dangerous than riding in a plane. However, even though this may be true, it can still be scary to think about being so high off the ground and the chances of actually surviving if a plane or helicopter you were riding in did in fact crash.

The Convention on International Civil Aviation Annex 13 defines an aviation accident as “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 persons have disembarked, where a person is fatally or seriously injured, the aircraft sustains damage or structural failure or the aircraft is missing or is completely inaccessible.”

Not many attorneys take on aviation claims, because they can be very complicated. Brooks Law Group has significant experience with these types of claims and understands the “ins and outs” of both helicopter crash and plane crash wrongful death claims. It is also important that the attorney or firm representing your interests has a network of qualified experts available to assist. Such experts may include aeronautical engineers, air traffic controllers, meteorologists, and pilots.

It is imperative that if you or a loved one is involved in an aviation accident that you contact an attorney right away – there are deadlines to bring lawsuits for aviation cases that need to be met. Brooks Law Group has been successful in handling these claims in the past and offers a free consultation to anyone inquiring about a potential claim.
