What are My Rights after an Aviation Accident?
You have the right to pursue a claim for compensation against those who are to blame for your injuries, damages and economic loss. Depending upon the circumstances, we might pursue a case based on defective plane parts, negligent plane maintenance, pilot incompetence or carelessness, or harm caused by another passenger when the staff failed to act.
In cases such as these, sizable companies will be held accountable for the harm you have endured, including any permanent disabilities and loss of income. Airline firms are heavily insured for just these reasons and generally, they are quick to step up and handle cases in a manner which limits the effect on their company’s reputation.
A local South Carolina Aviation Accident Attorney knows the law states, “You deserve to be “made whole,” i.e. just being repaid for the actual economic damages incurred isn’t adequate. You should also be compensated for other losses, such as pain and emotional distress, or lost companionship if your loved one’s death was the result of the incident.
