Passengers injured by negligent operation of an airplane can recover damages. Recoverable damages include medical bills, wage loss, and pain and suffering.
The most dramatic accident scenario is the airliner crash, but many people are injured by other more mundane aspects of airline travel, such as shifting luggage, unsafe ramps or seats, or employee conduct causing injury.
These cases typically require several different types of experts in areas such as aviation safety, medicine, vocational rehabilitation, and economics. We have extensive experience in this area and know which experts to retain on your behalf to prepare the case for maximum settlement or a successful jury trial.
The law is different for international travel, and it is actually easier to prove liability for injury occurring on an international flight.
We obtained a multi-million dollar recovery in a case involving denial of urgent medical care to a passenger who suffered a stroke on an international flight (read more here).
