Our Layton law firm has handled several aviation accidents related to helicopter crashes, personal aviation crashes, and commercial aviation accidents. Aviation accidents can be difficult to pursue, so it is vital to have a skilled attorney and team of professionals on your side to fight for your rights.
The Difficulty of Aviation Claims
Unlike commercial aviation equipment, private planes rarely have black boxes that record all of the information before a crash. Following through with an accident claim can be met with several roadblocks. Regulation and enforcement of plane maintenance are not always mandated for private plans, leaving one party vulnerable in the event of a crash. Our firm is dedicated to helping you seek answers and compensation for the pain and suffering you and your family has endured.
Helicopter and Private Plane Crashes in Davis County
There are several factors that lead to a private plane crash or helicopter crash. The investigators at LeBaron & Jensen will identify what caused the crash. Some of the most common reasons for aviation crashes include:
- Improper pilot training
- Faulty or poorly maintained equipment
- Design issues
- Employee negligence within the plane or from the airport and airlines
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) oversee all commercial and private aviation in the United States. Each plane crash is investigated and recommendations are made to help prevent future plane crashes. Although the FAA and NTSB try to eliminate plane crashes, they do still occur. If you have lost a loved one due to a plane crash, you have legal rights! Contact our Layton personal injury law firm to discuss your case.
Why You Need an Aviation Attorney
After a commercial plane crash, insurance companies will contact the victim’s families or the survivors of the crash. The insurance company will offer settlements, but these settlements can be lower than the victims deserve. LeBaron & Jensen has a team of professionals ready to help and negotiate with the insurance company to obtain fair compensation.
