Phoenix Aviation Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured in an airplane accident? Our clients come first! Free consultation!

At the Kelly Law Team, we understand that aviation accidents are both devastating and unexpected. Indeed, there is no way to prepare oneself for the loss of a loved one (or multiple loved ones) or the devastating injuries that may occur as the result of the crash of an airplane or a helicopter. If you have lost a family member, or if you have suffered an injury as the result of an aviation crash, speak to an experienced Phoenix airplane crash attorney at the Kelly Law Team. We understand the depth of the tragedy you have suffered, and while we cannot change the past, we can ensure that you are compensated for the loss, including regaining the financial security you deserve.

What are the Most Common Causes of Plane Crashes?

The investigation of a plane crash is a highly specialized field. Those looking into the circumstances surrounding a crash include not only the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), but also experts, hired on behalf of the survivors and family members of those who have perished in the crash.

There are numerous potential causes of plane and helicopter crashes. They include:

  • Pilot error.
  • Failure to conduct proper maintenance of the machine.
  • Violation of safety regulations, including those imposed by the NTSB.
  • Problems attributable to defects in the design or manufacture of the aircraft.

Note that pilot error historically is the most common reason for airplane crashes. These and other possible causes will be investigated on your behalf to determine where the legal liability rests for the tragedy you have suffered.

In addition, there are many distinct classes of flights and carriers that may be involved. Among them are:

  • Standard commercial flights.
  • Small private planes.
  • Cargo Planes.
  • Domestic and international flights.
  • Taxiing and other ground accidents.

And the number and severity of the accidents is significant. In 2020, for example, there were 880 non-fatal aviation accidents in the Unites States, and 205 fatalities. While this is a decrease from previous years, it does not detract from the high number of airplane crashes and deaths in this country.

How Can the Kelly Law Team Help After an Airplane Accident?

When there is a plane crash, victims and family members need an experienced law firm to assist in recovering damages to which they are entitled. This includes a firm with access to the appropriate experts, as well as experience in handling personal injury cases. John Kelly, the firm’s founder, has been practicing law for 20 years, most of that time focusing on personal injury recovery on behalf of his clients in the greater Phoenix area.

Where appropriate, we will retain, on your behalf, not only experts in airplane construction, maintenance, and operation, but also financial experts who can identify all the losses you may have suffered.

Why You Need the Right Law Firm for an Airplane Crash Case

If you are injured tripping over a broken walkway, the case is usually rather simple. Negligent maintenance of the walkway is often obvious, and your medical fees, pain and suffering, and lost wages, for example, are relatively easy to calculate. Not so with a plane crash.

At the outset, there are a host of potential causes for a crash. Those causes could involve airplane design, maintenance, safety violations, pilot error, and more. You will need qualified experts to demonstrate the reason for the crash. Not every expert has the required experience to testify on a particular cause, or possible cause, of the crash. Second, airlines and related industries, as well as their insurance companies, employee thousands of attorneys whose specific job is to reduce or eliminate any recovery by the victims of plane crashes.

You need an experienced, aggressive attorney on your side to protect your interests – and your recovery – from those who pretend that they are not liable for your loss.
