Personal injury attorneys for aviation accidents

Traveling by airplane is generally more convenient. When we travel, we are traveling for work, visiting family, or traveling for vacation. However, when an aviation accident occurs, most likely, you are away from your home, resulting in immense burden. While statistics show air travel is considered the safest way to travel, it goes without risk. 


When an airplane accident occurs, various agencies are involved, and placing liability is not easy. They take time and money to investigate and build a solid case effectively. Aviation accidents typically result in death or severe injuries and can be due to various reasons. Our Seattle airline accident attorney at Habtemariam Law Firm can help you determine liability and pursue compensation for your damages or losses. Call us today for a free evaluation at 206-624-1820.


Types of Injuries Suffered On An Airplane

An aviation accident doesn't only extend to a plane crash. There are many forms of injuries one can endure while traveling on an airplane. Often people are injured in the following ways:


  • Turbulence or sudden movements
  • Being struck by a piece of luggage or equipment on the airplane
  • Boarding or disembarking an airplane
  • Slip, trip, or fall caused by an employee's negligent action


If you or someone you love was injured while traveling on an airplane, you could be entitled to recover compensation. Airlines and the transportation industry, including pilots, flight attendants, engineers, FAA, ground traffic control, and others, are subject to greater responsibility for the care of passengers getting on and off the aircraft and during the flight. If a transportation industry member breaches their duty to keep the passengers safe, call our aviation lawyer at Habtemariam Law to help you file a personal injury claim. If you were injured in an airplane accident, the most important factors to remember are:



  • Obtain medical assistance 
  • Speak to witnesses and obtain their information
  • Take photos of the accident scene and the injuries sustained, if possible.


Types of Aviation Accidents 

Various types of aviation accidents can cause a death of a loved one or suffer from severe injuries. These include:


  • Helicopter crash
  • Private charter crash
  • Commercial airline accident
  • Air ambulance accident


Depending on the circumstance and where the aircraft accident occurred, different laws are applied. Due to the magnitude of these cases, it is in your best interest to consult with an experienced aviation attorney to advise you of your legal rights. Call Habtemariam Law Firm today at 206-624-1820 for a free consultation. You will not pay anything until we recover compensation for your damages.
