They don’t happen daily, but when they do, airplane crashes are devastating, usually with significant death tolls. Given Providence’s often treacherous weather, they occur far more frequently than we would like – but our aviation accident lawyers are here to help.
Large-scale commercial crashes get the bulk of the headlines because there are rarely survivors. However, small private planes and helicopters crash daily with little to no coverage. Deaths occur far less frequently in these types of crashes. But they can still seriously injure the pilot and his passengers.
If you were injured in an airplane crash accident, call us at (401) 751-8855 for a free case consultation and determine if you can pursue compensation for your injuries and damages.
Legal Ramifications of an Airplane Crash
When any aircraft crashes, the legal implications are complex. In addition to traditional negligence law, state and federal regulations are often at play. Fortunately, the attorneys at the Resmini Law Firm have over 50 years of experience in and around Providence, Rhode Island. Our attorneys know how to maximize recovery for our clients in aviation accidents.
When a commercial plane crashes, airline representatives often contact survivors quickly. These parties are eager to settle or explain the situation away. Too often, people feel they have no other recourse and accept the offer. This is a mistake. Until a proper investigation happens, it is impossible to know the source of the crash. Often, it is simply wind shear or, like the Hudson River landing, birds flying into the turbines, just freak accidents. Other times, evidence shows the crash resulted from pilot error or inadequate maintenance. In those cases, crash victims are entitled to recover from the airline.
Private Airplane Crashes
Private airplane crashes occur far more frequently than commercial airlines. The reasons for the frequency are multifold. That is, there is far less oversight of private planes that often depart from small landing strips. Furthermore, many of the private planes only have one engine. When that engine malfunctions, the probability of a crash is virtually inevitable. Nevertheless, the accidents occur for the same reasons as their larger counterparts. These include pilot error, mechanical difficulties, and inadequate maintenance.
Federal Aviation Administration Regulations
Federal regulations, general aviation rules, and the nature of flying make plane crash cases highly complex. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. know how to interpret those laws. They also have access to experts who can investigate these incidents properly.
