General Aviation Accidents

The category of general aviation aircrafts include all privately owned airplanes utilized by the public for personal or business use. General aviation is governed by different federal regulations than commercial or military aircraft. The majority of planes in this classification are single-engine, propeller-driven planes like the Cessna 172, Cirrus SR20 or the Piper PA-32. Twin-engine airplanes and private jets, flown by more experienced pilots, also fall into the general aviation category. Litigation for small aircraft accidents may involve many different legal issues, so it is imperative to choose legal representation by an experienced injury lawyer to efficiently work with investigating officials and insurance companies.

Commercial Airliner Accidents

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States enforces regulations for commercial airlines, airport operations, and aircraft manufacturers to ensure the safety of your flight. Airline accident victim’s claims can fall under many jurisdictions like:

  • International Travelers – If any leg of your journey includes international air travel, legal claims for plane crash injuries or fatalities will be governed by The Montreal Convention, The Hague Protocol or The Warsaw Convention.
  • Beyond 12 Nautical Miles from US Shores – the Death on the High Seas Act may limit personal injury and wrongful death claims. However, amendments to this act over the years, now address both financial losses as well as non-economic damage recovery for a commercial airline tragedy victim’s family.
  • Within the United States – Aviation law in the US falls under the oversight of the FAA and will also include applicable state laws consistent with federal mandates. Aviation law practice includes legal actions for plane crash survivors’ injuries and on behalf of families who have suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of an airline accident.

There are many different resources available for plane crash survivors and for families of passengers who have lost their lives.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
