New Orleans Airplane Accidents Lawyers

Large commercial airline accidents make big news, but smaller private aircraft are involved in more fatal accidents every year. Because non-commercial aircraft are not held to the same strict standards as commercial carriers, accidents may be more likely. Pilot and crew inexperience may also contribute to the higher number of private aviation accidents.

At Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, we represent people injured in aviation accidents as well as families who have lost loved ones in these accidents, which may include pilots, passengers, ground crew, mechanics and people on the ground near the crash site. Our New Orleans airplane accidents attorneys will investigate the accident and aggressively pursue compensation.

Helicopter And Plane Crashes

We can assist you with accidents involving any type of aircraft, including commercial aircraft, non-commercial aircraft, small private planes and helicopters. Some of the most frequent causes of aviation accidents include:

  • Pilot error
  • Mechanical defects
  • Maintenance or safety failures
  • Ground personnel errors
  • Traffic control errors

These types of errors and negligence can result in crashes, emergency landings and runway accidents. Helicopter accidents that involve transporting offshore workers and supplies are also quite common.

Aviation accidents typically cause catastrophic or fatal injuries. We seek compensation from the negligent party for losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, we will also seek compensation for funeral expenses, lost income and/or benefits of the deceased, and the personal loss of a loved one.
