Commercial Airline Accidents Jacksonville Plane Crash Lawyers Fight for Victims

When we go to the airport and board a commercial airplane, we have usually booked a return flight and have a reasonable expectation that we will return home safely from our vacation or business trip. Fortunately, major airline crashes are fairly rare. Unfortunately, they do happen.

In fact, from 1959 through 2015, about 1,525 commercial passenger aircrafts crashed.

Because of the immense amount of fatalities and destruction, these tragedies are sometimes considered to be air disasters. But what can you do when you or a loved one have been affected by these kinds of catastrophes?

Multiple Responsible Parties

About 13% of commercial plane crashes occur during takeoff and initial ascent and another 48% of accidents occur when an aircraft is descending and attempting to land. Despite these statistics, commercial air travel is one of the safest ways to travel. Each individual has a 1 in 9,821, or 0.01% chance of dying in a commercial airline accident.

For that ill-fated 0.01% of the population, however, finding justice is a challenging task. Multiple parties conduct investigations and become defendants in legal claims. Typically, the following organizations are involved:

  • The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)
  • The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
  • Commercial airline carriers (like Malaysia Airlines or Air France)
  • Aircraft manufacturers (like Boeing)
  • Air traffic controllers (or other government air travel officials)

It is important to remember that the above list is not exhaustive. With diverse layers of state, federal, and international law, air crash litigation is an extremely difficult undertaking.

As such, experience is the key factor to look for when considering aviation attorneys. At Spohrer Dodd, we have 150+ years of combined experience and our specialists are board-certified.

Fighting for Jacksonville Travelers

In 2018, the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) hosted 6,460,253 passengers. At Sopher Dodd, we are committed to keeping each and every one of those 6.4 million passengers safe from harm. While we cannot prevent commercial plane crashes, we can help uphold worldwide standards of aircraft safety by holding negligent airline carriers and manufactures responsible for what they did wrong.

While you may be reeling from the loss of a loved one or a traumatic injury, you owe it to yourself and future travelers to pursue justice.
