What You Need to Know About Manhattan Plane Accident Cases

There are various types of accidents that can happen on or near a plane. Examples of incidents that may leave you with serious injuries include–but are not limited to–the following:

  • Accidents that occur on board a plane due to a broken or defective device or object
  • Accidents at the airport, such as slip and falls
  • Illnesses resulting from consumption of expired or contaminated food on a plane
  • Accidents resulting from inadequate security

Manhattan Plane Accident Cases: Common Causes

Just as there are many potential types of Manhattan plane accidents, these accidents have many potential causes. Some of these include the following:

Pilot Error

It is critical that airlines only hire pilots who are thoroughly qualified and trained for their roles. For various reasons, a pilot can make careless mistakes that can put you and other passengers in danger. A simple error like failing to properly judge the severity of certain weather conditions can have major consequences.

Pilot Intoxication

A pilot must never operate planes under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They are more likely to make mistakes or overlook important signs of danger if they are intoxicated.

Airline Negligence

Airline negligence can take many forms, including the following:

  • Hiring unqualified pilots or failing to train pilots
  • Failure to properly communicate safety procedures to passengers
  • Ground crews failing to refuel planes sufficiently
  • Failure to detect and remove slip and fall hazards in a timely manner

Airport Negligence

Accidents do not always occur on planes, but can also happen at the airport. You may be injured in a slip and fall accident if those responsible for addressing hazards at the airport are negligent.

Do not underestimate the potential harm such an accident may cause. Research indicates that one out of every five falling accidents results in serious injury to those involved.

Air Traffic Control Negligence

Air traffic controllers play just as significant a role in ensuring passenger safety as pilots. An air traffic controller may be negligent if they direct pilots to land in an already congested area, fail to alert pilots of other planes and obstacles nearby, and more.

Airplane Defects

Those involved in designing and manufacturing planes must take all necessary steps to ensure they have not overlooked any defects. If they fail to spot a defect, an accident can occur. Airlines are also responsible for regularly inspecting and maintaining their airplanes.

Your Rights After a Manhattan Plane Accident

Regardless of the cause of your accident, if you are involved in an airplane crash you will likely sustain injuries that require costly medical treatment. Due to the unexpected nature of your injuries, you may not be prepared to pay these sudden and expensive medical bills. If your injuries are severe enough, you may require immediate medical assistance as well as long-term care. This can prevent you from returning to work, permanently or temporarily, making you unable to earn a paycheck. This will add to your financial burdens even more.

You are likely entitled to compensation for such losses if your plane accident was the result of someone else’s negligence. To optimize your chances of securing compensation, seek representation from the personal injury experts at our Manhattan law firm.

How Our Plane Accident Law Firm in the Manhattan Area Can Help

There are numerous reasons to hire a Manhattan plane accident lawyer when seeking compensation for your losses. We can assist you in the following key ways:

Investigating the Accident

To recover compensation after a plane accident, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party.

First, you will need to determine who the negligent party may be. Our legal professionals can conduct a thorough investigation to identify those who may be responsible for compensating you.

Pursuing Compensation

Every case is unique and will result in different injuries and losses. We can help you obtain a fair settlement offer or a favorable verdict by carefully reviewing all of your medical bills, lost wages, and medical reports. This will help us ensure you are compensated for your past and future financial losses, as well as for your pain and suffering.


Insurers may be motivated to protect themselves financially when you seek compensation. They may attempt to convince you to settle for less than your claim is truly worth.

You do not need to accept their initial low offers. Instead, our Manhattan plane accident attorneys can negotiate on your behalf, using their skills and previous experiences to help you overcome obstacles in your pursuit of compensation. If they cannot reach an appropriate settlement, they are prepared to take your case to trial to fight for a favorable verdict.
