Des Moines Single and Twin-Engine Private Planes Lawyers
The excitement and freedom that one experiences when flying in his or her aircraft or when traveling by another person’s private plane are certainly unique. There are significant demands that must be met in order for someone to gain licensure to lawfully operate one of these planes, but time and lack of recent practice can lead even a licensed pilot to lose command of some essential facets of flight. This is but one reason that small private planes are the most likely to crash and result in serious injury or death for those aboard or on the ground.
If you or your loved one has been hurt in a small plane accident that was caused by a private owner or pilot’s negligence, you may be able to sue for financial compensation.
There are a shocking number of potential dangers that can strike when a plane is sitting on a runway or taking to the sky. These risks are heightened with private planes because the pilots do not undergo training as intense or extensive as that to which commercial aviators are subjected. The failure to properly train a pilot or check a plane for problems is inexcusable, however, regardless of the size of the plane or the resources of an owner or airport. Potential causes of an accident may include:
- Improper or insufficient maintenance
- Inadequate training
- Unlicensed flying
- Flying while intoxicated
Taking chances with innocent passenger lives is never acceptable, and careless pilots or plane owners cannot go unpunished for the preventable harm that they cause to others in the event of a plane crash or accident. If you have been affected by any of the above situations, or any other instances of negligence, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Let us help you to protect your legal rights when your finances and physical health have been endangered.
