Plane & Helicopter Crash Accidents

Hurt in a Plane Crash? Give John Bales Attorneys a Call.

Plane Crashes

At John Bales Attorneys, we have helped victims of plane or helicopter crash accidents get the compensation they deserve for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The crash may have been caused by many factors including:

  • Aircraft manufacturing
  • Mechanical failure
  • Improper maintenance
  • Pilot error
  • Ground operator mistake
  • Weather conditions

A catastrophic crash can occur with even a slight error or failure. Whether a major airline or a small private plane or helicopter is involved, a thorough investigation and highly qualified expert witnesses are needed to analyze the cause. The investigation and representation of our clients to establish liability and damages can costs in the six figures. Even recovery from insurance coverage can be difficult. In many cases, the pilot may have limited liability insurance.

A plane and helicopter attorney must know the specific laws that apply. For example, an airplane crash that does not involve the airline or a common commercial airplane, the regulations are typically similar to that of a car accident. They are not usually held to the higher standards of care for commercial planes, and the owners of private aircraft may exercise ordinary care in flying their planes. With a commercial carrier, the right to damage claims will depend on whether the flight is domestic or international..
