Airplane & Helicopter Accidents

At Golightly & Vannah, we understand that aviation accident law is different from any other area of the law. Many different individuals and corporations can be responsible for liability in an aviation accident. Parties in addition to the airline carrier may be held responsible for injuries or wrongful death resulting from a plane crash, including the plane manufacturer, their subcontractors, and air traffic control. It is important to understand that different laws exist for commercial and private flights.

A non-commercial flight is governed by different laws than commercial flights. Typically, a private aircraft and its pilot and/or mechanics must use ordinary and reasonable care in the operation and maintenance of a plane. The owner of a plane involved in a crash can be held liable for negligence by a mechanic or pilot. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with these laws and how they apply to plane crash victims and their families. You need an attorney that understands these complex laws and is familiar with their nuances. The Golightly & Vannah legal team will conduct a thorough investigation, including hiring aviation industry experts, to determine the causes of the accident and which parties are liable.
