At The Law Offices of Scott J. Senft, our team is committed to helping those persons wrongfully injured in aviation accidents. Though flying is one of the safest forms of travel, devastating accidents unfortunately still occur.
A Central Florida aviation accident team from The Law Offices of Scott J. Senft can review your case free of charge and help determine the best way to pursue your claim. Aviation accident lawsuits typically fall into one of the following categories:
Wrongful Death – In the event that a loved one is killed in an aviation accident, a lawyer from our firm has the experience, knowledge, and drive needed to help you obtain the financial compensation that you deserve. This can include compensation for funerary costs, a loss of income (including future income), a loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. If it can be demonstrated that the defendant was liable for the death of your loved one, then the defendant is responsible for any and all damages that occurred.
Product Liability – Many aviation accidents, both commercial and private, are caused by defective equipment. If it can be shown that equipment failure or a defective plane component resulted in an aviation accident that caused injury or death, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against the liable parties. This can include the designer or the manufacturer, and in some instances, the distributor of the part.
Professional Negligence – Any failure by a pilot, aircraft mechanic, or other agent to take reasonable and prudent action in the course of his or her duty which results in an accident could be considered professional negligence. It may be possible to file for financial compensation from the liable party and his or her employer if it can be shown that the defendant’s negligence resulted in an injurious accident.
