Miami Plane & Helicopter Crash Attorneys

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reports that in excess of 1,500 aviation accidents occur in the United States every year. Unfortunately, injuries sustained in aviation accidents are often catastrophic in nature or even fatal, and it can sometimes be difficult to determine fault in these types of accidents. In Miami, the aviation accident lawyers at Baron & Herskowitz are highly experienced in this specific type of personal injury litigation, and we are dedicated to using the full extent of our knowledge and resources to help individuals who have suffered as a result of aircraft accidents recover full and just compensation for their damages.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

Though it can often be very difficult to determine the cause of an aircraft accident, our lawyers have the experience and resources necessary to conduct a thorough investigation into all factors which may have caused or contributed to an aviation accident, such as:

  • Weather
  • Mechanical problems
  • Unsafe runway conditions
  • Pilot error
  • Air traffic controller error
  • Fueling issues
  • Defective aircraft parts
  • Inadequate aircraft maintenance

Aviation Accident Injuries

The high speeds and tremendous heights at which most aircraft travel often mean that injuries sustained in aviation accidents are very serious in nature. Common injuries suffered by individuals involved in aviation accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Head or traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Death
