Air travel is the safest form of transportation, but when aviation accidents do occur, they are often disastrous and may claim numerous lives. They also present complex legal and technical issues that cannot be resolved by most personal injury law firms.

Causes of Plane, Helicopter & Other Aviation Accidents
Most aviation accidents are caused by one or more of three factors, related to:
- Human error;
- Mechanical defects; or
- Environmental influences.
An exhaustive investigation will reveal the specific cause or causes of an accident, thus shedding light on fault and what party or parties should be held legally accountable for a victim’s injury or loss. Even if an environmental influence such as heavy weather is to blame, it could be that an air traffic controller failed to adequately warn a pilot of adverse flying conditions.
Mechanical defects may be traced to poor maintenance or a defective product. In any scenario, our Jacksonville airplane accident attorneys will be prepared to pursue justice against the liable individual, company, or government entity.
