Airplane Accidents Attorneys
By nature of the size and weight of the transportation unit, airplane accidents can result in some of the most shocking and devastating personal injuries to multitudes of passengers.

Importance of Taking Immediate Action After a Plane Crash
After involvement in a plane crash, you should take legal action immediately. Under the California Tort Claims Act (CTCA), you are only given six months to initiate a claim for personal injury or wrongful death against a government agency. You will also want to obtain immediate assistance of expert witnesses to examine and document the accident and plane.
If you are filing a claim against a government agency, you must be aware of the federal and state laws that offer protection for them. Our goal in representation is to ensure that the process is handled with as much ease as possible. We want to develop a solid case on your behalf that protects your rights and helps you obtain the monetary compensation you deserve!
The Right to Compensation for Airplane Accident Victims
In a personal injury claim for a plane crash, you may be entitled to recover a substantial amount of monetary compensation for the following damages, and more:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
If you lost a loved one and are filing a wrongful death claim, the compensation will also likely be substantial if liability on the part of the responsible individual or agency can be proven.
