No Fee Unless We Win.

With nearly 90,000 flights occurring every day in the United States, roughly 32 million per year, the commercial airline aviation industry is tremendously popular in the modern age. And with so much activity, problems, accidents and injuries are bound to occur as well. Luckily, 2017 was the fourth consecutive year in which zero air flight fatalities happened in our country. Nonetheless, mishaps and accidents do occur regularly, and there are many ways in which passengers can incur injuries when flying on a commercial airline.


Typically, accident victims can file personal injury claims to obtain compensation for damages suffered. However, having a good personal injury lawyer is vital to the success of these claims. While actual crash or collision accidents are much less common than those listed above, they do occur. Errors made by the pilot are the leading cause of air flight crashes, followed by equipment malfunctions. The following is a comprehensive list of the top causes of airplane crashes:

  • Human error made by pilot and/or airline staff
  • Faulty equipment
  • Violations of Federal Aviation Administration regulations
  • Structural or design problems
  • Negligence of flight servicing employees
  • Negligence of Federal air traffic controllers
  • Negligence of third party or airline carriers


If you have sustained an air flight injury due to the negligence of an airline employee or due to a defective product or malfunctioning equipment (product liability), then you likely have a very promising personal injury case to file. Depending on the kind of accident in which you have been involved, your injuries can include physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and medical expenses. You are legally allowed to receive compensation for each of these categories. Call The Jackman Law Firm today for a free consultation to discuss your aviation personal injury claim.
