Queens Plane Accidents: What You Need to Know

When the average person thinks of a plane accident, they typically imagine a devastating crash. However, that is by no means the only type of Queens plane accident you can be injured in. Examples of plane accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Accidents while onboard a plane: These may be the result of defective or broken components of a plane, including broken seats, trip hazards, broken overhead luggage compartments, and more.
  • Accidents at the airport: These can include slips and falls throughout the airport and its dining facilities.
  • Becoming ill after eating expired or contaminated food on a plane.
  • Accidents related to inadequate security on a plane or in an airport.

Common Causes of Queens Plane Accidents

Just as there are various types of Queens plane accidents, there is also a wide range of potential causes. Examples include:

Pilot Error

Airlines should thoroughly vet applicants to ensure all pilots they hire are qualified for their jobs. However, even qualified pilots can make careless mistakes at times. You may have been injured because a pilot severely underestimated hazardous weather conditions or became distracted while operating the plane.

Pilot error can also overlap with airline negligence. If a pilot made a miscalculation because they were not qualified to do their job properly, an airline might be considered negligent for hiring the pilot in the first place.

Other Forms of Airline Negligence

Hiring unqualified pilots is not the only form of airline negligence that can put you and other travelers in harm’s way. Airline negligence can also take the form of ground crews failing to fully refuel a plane, failure to thoroughly explain safety procedures to passengers, and more.

Pilot Intoxication

It is extremely irresponsible for a pilot to operate a plane when they are even mildly intoxicated. Any degree of intoxication can substantially limit a pilot’s reaction time and ability to operate a plane safely. Unfortunately, pilot intoxication is more common than many realize.

Airplane Defects

Queens plane accidents are not always the result of negligence on the part of a pilot or airline. For example, you may be injured if a plane’s designers or manufacturers overlooked an inherent flaw or defect.

Air Traffic Control Negligence

Air traffic controllers can also cause plane accidents in Queens if they are careless or lack adequate training. For instance, you might be involved in an accident if an air traffic controller allowed a plane to take off or land in close proximity to other planes.

Airport Negligence

Queens plane accidents do not always take place on planes. If you were injured at the airport, it might be because those responsible for keeping the premises hazard-free were careless. Even a simple slip and fall in a terminal could lead to serious injury.

How a Plane Accident Law Firm in Queens Can Help

Injuries sustained in a Queens plane accident can leave you with costly medical bills. Injuries may be so severe that they limit your mobility and make it extremely difficult for you to return to work. This can prevent you from earning a paycheck. In addition to struggling with medical bills, this lack of income can also affect your ability to pay various day-to-day household expenses.

You may also be entitled to compensation for non-financial losses. The experts at our personal injury law firm in the Queens area can review your case to determine if you can seek compensation for pain and suffering and similar losses.

This is just one reason to hire our Queens plane accident attorneys when seeking compensation after an accident. Other ways we help include:

Investigating the Accident

To recover compensation for losses resulting from a Queens plane accident, you can typically file a claim against the negligent party’s insurance. It is often unclear who the negligent parties are in these complex cases. That is why we often conduct a thorough investigation to identify all parties who may be responsible for compensating you. If applicable, our Queens plane accident attorneys can help you file a lawsuit and seek damages in court.

Filing a Lawsuit

If applicable, our Queens plane accident attorneys can help you file a lawsuit and seek damages in court. The experts at our plane accident law firm in the Queens area will review the details and extent of your injuries and losses so that they may fight for a fair settlement offer. Remember, every case is unique. Our experienced attorneys will devise the best strategy to meet your individual needs.

Negotiating

Regardless of who is responsible for compensating you, it is possible that their insurer may try to convince you to accept an offer that does not account for your full range of losses. Sadly, some insurers prefer to work with inexperienced claimants directly. The average person has far less experience negotiating with insurance companies than attorneys.

This is yet another reason to enlist the help of our Queens plane accident lawyers. They can handle all major correspondence with the insurance company for you. With our expert representation, you may be far more likely to reach an appropriate settlement. We are also prepared to go to trial on your behalf if a settlement cannot be reached.
