The skies above Nevada and surrounding states host a high volume of traffic — tourist flights over the Grand Canyon, corporate planes, commuter planes, and commercial jetliners. Flying is inherently dangerous, since even small errors can bring an aircraft down, and a helicopter crash or airplane accident typically occurs at a high speed and high elevation. In the event of an incident, an aviation accident attorney in Las Vegas can help protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
When an inflight breakup, crash landing or takeoff crash occurs, the Federal Aviation Administration performs an investigation into the incident. Causes of helicopter and airplane accidents include equipment malfunction, unavoidable weather issues, and pilot error. Often, an aviation accident is the result of a combination of factors. A pilot’s distraction during a change in the weather, the stress on defective equipment when the craft flies through a storm, or flying at low altitudes to provide tourists a better view — small errors cause fatal crashes.
If faulty maintenance or defective equipment on a plane or helicopter caused the crash, our client may be entitled to a product liability claim. Speak with a Las Vegas product liability attorney to learn more about defective product laws in Nevada.
Pilot error may have resulted from negligent hiring practices on the part of a corporation. Our Las Vegas aviation accident attorneys will coordinate all claims so our client receives maximum benefit. You pay nothing unless we recover compensation on your behalf.
