Handling All Types of Complex & Serious Aviation Accident Claims
Aviation Accident Attorneys in Indianapolis
Air travel is the safest form of travel. However, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), there were 1,210 general aviation accidents in 2015 (the latest year for which data is available). Unfortunately, when an airplane, helicopter, or another type of aircraft does encounter a problem, the results are extremely devastating and often fatal. The NTSB reports that, of the 1,200+ general aviation accidents that occurred in 2015, nearly 240 resulted in fatalities, with the total number of deaths surpassing 400. This does not take into account the number of severe, life-altering injuries.

Who Is Liable for Aviation Accidents?
Aviation accident cases can be quite complex, mainly due to the fact that responsible parties can vary from case to case. The owner and operator of the aircraft, as well as its manufacturer or maintenance crew, could be liable in some instances. Additionally, commercial airlines are subject to different legal standards.
Depending on the exact details involved, any of the following parties may be liable for an accident involving you or your loved one:
- The commercial airline company
- The pilot of the aircraft
- A private company that owns or leases the aircraft
- The manufacturer of the aircraft
- The manufacturer of a defective airplane or helicopter part
- A crew member or co-pilot
- The company responsible for conducting maintenance
- The person or company in charge of repairs
Our Indianapolis aviation accident lawyers can talk you through the accident from start to finish, including everything that you recall happening before, during, and after the crash. We also closely monitor the NTSB investigation to preserve crucial evidence that can help your case.
