We understand the time after an airplane crash or other aviation accident is one of deep pain and grieving from the spouses, children and family of the passengers and crews who died or were seriously injured. As the time passes you will have questions about the accident, your legal rights and the duties of those responsible for the accident. The Virginia airplane accident attorneys at Joel Bieber Firm can help answer your questions. Joel Bieber has even handled cases that involved injuries that occurred on the ground, while in the plane.
What are my legal rights after an aircraft disaster?
In the United States, when a person is injured in an aircraft accident, in most cases the injured victim or spouse of the deceased may bring a claim upon the responsible party. You are entitled to compensation for the loss of support, services and other benefits that a married couple provided to each other. If there is no spouse, the children may sue for damages.
What is included in Aviation Law?
Sometimes it is difficult to remember that air travel is consistently the safest way to travel long distances. Unfortunately no means of transportation is completely risk free and like other modes of travel, airplanes are not immune from tragic accidents. A variety of problems can occur that result in an air accident including mechanical problems and pilot error.
Some reasons for aircraft accidents…
- engine failure
- flight into poor terrain

- loss of control
