Fighting to Recover Compensation for Aviation Accident Victims
Many people are unaware of how common aviation accidents are in the United States. Typically, the only newsworthy accidents reported in the media involve “jumbo jets” and 747s operated by major airline carriers. The reality is that aviation issues are far more frequent than you probably suspect, with numerous helicopters, private planes, air ambulances, and other types of aircraft regularly experiencing accidents.
If you were involved in any kind of aviation accident, it is important to cooperate with the federal government officials who are required to investigate the crash. All incidents and accidents must be reported to the National Transportation Safety Board. Investigators will seek to recover the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder (also known as the “black box”), two of the most important pieces of evidence. Once these items have been obtained (and the government investigation has been completed), our team at Potts Law Firm can help you take steps to hold negligent parties accountable.
At our firm, it’s all about the results. Our aviation accident lawyers have a strong track record of winning complex cases and have recovered over a billion dollars. Our unwavering commitment to our clients and our refusal to accept anything but the possible outcome has earned us the respect of the communities we serve. No matter the complexity of your situation, we will move quickly to get you the just compensation you need to move forward.

What Are the Types of Aviation Accidents?
When you think about aviation accidents, you probably picture a nightmarish scenario like a plane crashing into terrain and exploding. While these catastrophic, fatal incidents do occur, they are relatively rare. The majority of aviation accidents do not result in full-on crashes, and some do not even occur when the aircraft is airborne.
Types of aviation accidents we are ready to handle include:
- Flight maneuver problems
- Ground collisions
- Landing accidents
- Mid-air collisions
- Taxiing accidents
Who Is Liable for Aviation Accidents?
Who can be held responsible for an aviation accident will depend on the nature of what occurred and whose decisions contributed to the cause of the incident. Many aviation accidents are caused by one or more factors, including human error, design or manufacturing defects, and maintenance problems. Legal professionals rely on the findings of the federal investigation as they work to ascertain liability.
After carefully evaluating the circumstances, our aviation accident attorneys can help you take action against all liable parties, which may include:
- The pilot(s)
- The ground crew
- The manufacturer of a defective aircraft component
- The airline
- The aircraft’s owner
What Damages Can I Recover in an Aviation Accident Lawsuit?
The time limits that apply to aviation accidents can be extremely complicated and vary by state, the type of aircraft, and other factors. You should always get in touch with a legal professional as soon as you can after the accident to ensure you do not miss any deadlines and consequently lose your right to recover damages.
Our team at Potts Law Firm will work to get you compensation for all monetary and non-monetary losses, including:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
