The Federal Aviation Agency is responsible for regulation of the aviation industry, including aircraft safety. As with motor vehicle accidents, if you or someone you know have been injured in a jet or airplane accident, or if a person has died in a crash, the victim (or that person’s heirs) may be entitled to substantial compensation for the injuries or death. Due to the complexity of the issues, such as insurance clauses that potentially limit the aircraft owner’s legal liability in case of death or injury (which oftentimes violates public policy and which is NOT enforceable), it is important that you consult with an experienced attorney to determine your rights and to protect them. Aviation law is an extremely complex area, and with ever-changing laws, rules and regulations, the services of an experienced attorney are strongly advised.
In one of the aviation injury cases Mr. Achrem handled, the air controller at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, had accidentally allowed a 747 jet to fly directly over a small plane as its pilot and passenger were attempting to land. The resulting wind turbulence caused the smaller aircraft to lose control and crash. Although both occupants incredibly survived, their injuries were severe. Ultimately, both of Mr. Achrem’s clients received extremely large, confidential settlements to compensate them for their permanent injuries.
