Please call Burnett & Williams at 703-777-1650 for specific answers to your concerns if you have been involved in a aviation accident.
An aviation accident is roughly as an occurrence associated with the operation of an aircraft which takes place between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight and all such persons have disembarked. If a person is fatally or seriously injured while in or near an airplane there may be cause to investigate negligence and liability.
Statistically, air travel is the safest form of transportation however most injuries occur on the ground due to runway incidents or moving parts within or on the airplane. While the odds of being in a plane crash are distinctly low compared to other means of transportation, the chances of dying in such a disaster are notably higher. If you have been involved in an aviation accident, it is important to speak with a reliable attorney before delving into insurance issues that may be unfamiliar to you.
