Why Liability Matters in Aviation Accidents

By establishing liability, you may be able to take legal action against the person who caused or contributed to your plane crash and require them to pay for the consequences of their negligence or error. This can make a dramatic difference in the lives of all those involved in paying costs associated with the resulting injuries and/or death.

Such costs may include (but are not limited to):

  • Surgery
  • Extended hospital stays
  • In- and/or out-patient rehabilitation
  • Ongoing treatment for disabilities
  • Costly prescription medications
  • Lost wages, savings, inheritance
  • Funeral costs

Why You Must Seek Legal Counsel Immediately

Much like other catastrophic accidents, plane crashes are complicated. Finding definitive evidence of liability requires immediate action, especially in cases of commercial airline accidents, in which airlines may have a vested interest in covering up clarifying or incriminating evidence. By getting in touch with an attorney immediately following your plane crash, you give yourself a much better chance at receiving a just solution in your case.

We are prepared to begin investigating your case immediately. Call Hoyt & Blewett PLLC today at (406) 233-1302 and get in touch with a plane crash lawyer near you.
