Brooklyn Plane Accident Lawyer

Planes have significantly changed the way we get from point A to point B when it comes to other states or countries. While flying is a convenient and quick way to travel, it has its flaws.

Plane accidents vary from crashes to less traumatic experiences, yet there is a chance to attempt receiving compensation if you were injured through no fault of your own.

Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident on a plane in the Brooklyn area? While this will hopefully never occur, it is important to understand your rights if you ever find yourself in these circumstances. Depending on the nature of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for a range of losses, potentially including your medical bills, lost wages, and more. At Shulman & Hill, a dedicated Brooklyn plane accident attorney can review your case to determine whether you have grounds to file a claim or lawsuit.

Common Brooklyn Plane Accidents

Plane accidents are not always devastating crashes. Common types of Brooklyn plane accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • An accident on-board of a plane, resulting from a defective or broken component, such as a broken seat.
  • Slip and falls and similar accidents at the airport.
  • Food poisoning.
  • Accidents resulting from insufficient security.

Regardless of the nature of your accident, if you have been hurt on a plane, it may be because someone was negligent. Meet with a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn to discuss your options.

Why Brooklyn Plane Accidents May Happen

The potential causes of Brooklyn plane accidents are wide-ranging. They include:

Pilot intoxication

Although flying a plane while intoxicated is clearly extremely dangerous and irresponsible, it is not unheard of for pilots to do so.

An intoxicated pilot is more prone to overlooking warning messages, underestimating the severity of hazardous weather conditions, and generally making errors that put passengers at risk.


Planes are complex pieces of machinery. A single defect can result in accidents.

Airline negligence

Examples of airline negligence that can result in a plane accident include hiring unqualified pilots, ground crews failing to properly refuel planes, and failure to explain safety procedures.

Airport negligence

Airport negligence can also cause accidents. You may be involved in a slip and fall or similar accident if airport employees fail to spot and address a tripping hazard. Keep in mind, even a slip and fall has the potential to result in serious injury.

Pilot error

A pilot can make a mistake that may put passengers in harm’s way. For instance, if a pilot is distracted during pre-flight safety checks, they might forget an essential step that may lead to an accident.

Air traffic control negligence

The pilot is not the only one responsible for keeping passengers safe. Air traffic controllers also play a critical role in your safety. Thus, when they are negligent, you may be involved in an accident that leaves you with significant injuries.

The Consequences of a Brooklyn Plane Accident

The severity of your injuries will determine the nature of the struggles and loss you may face in the aftermath of a plane accident. In general, any injuries you sustain will likely require some degree of medical treatment. Thus, being involved in a Brooklyn plane accident will probably leave you with unexpected medical bills.

Additionally, your injuries may interfere with your ability to work. In some cases, you may be unable to work until you have fully recovered, therefore your financial struggles might be exacerbated due to your inability to earn a paycheck.

If your accident happened because someone was negligent, you may deserve compensation for such losses. Coordinating with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn will improve your chances of recovering what you may be owed.

How Our Plane Accident Law Firm in Brooklyn Helps

The fact that you may be entitled to compensation after a Brooklyn plane accident does not mean collecting it will necessarily be easy. If you attempt to do so independently, you are less likely to reach a fair settlement or be awarded damages in court. Enlist the help of a qualified Brooklyn plane accident lawyer to guide you through the process.

The following are among the key ways we can help you pursue the compensation you deserve:

Investigating the accident

In most cases, to seek compensation after a Brooklyn plane accident, filing a claim against the negligent party’s insurance may be necessary. However, before doing so, one needs to determine who the negligent party is.

Identifying those who caused an accident typically requires conducting a thorough investigation. An attorney can carefully study all the details of your case and accurately determine who is responsible for compensating you.

Determining how much your claim is worth

Our Brooklyn plane accident attorneys can also help you calculate how much compensation is best to ask for when filing a claim. Additionally, because you may still incur future financial losses resulting from your accident, we will account for them when determining how much compensation you are likely entitled to.


An insurance company is not likely to immediately hand over what you are owed as soon as you file a claim. Insurers often tend to respond to claims by making lower offers at first. There is a chance they deny the claim altogether if they can justify doing so.

This may highlight one of the most crucial reasons you may need help from a personal injury lawyer. Experienced attorneys understand the tactics an insurer might employ. If we cannot reach an appropriate settlement, we will pursue damages in court.
