There's no such thing as a minor airplane accident. The speed with which airplanes and helicopters fly, combined with the height at which they travel and the amount of explosive, flammable fuel they carry create dangerous and deadly conditions when accidents occur. Passengers, crew and those on the ground are all at risk. Airplane crash litigation is a technically complex area of law. An aviation accident attorney will have experience working with experts and investigators to determine who was at fault for the accident and helping victims of airplane crashes get the compensation they deserve.
