All pilots and flight crews must undergo rigorous training in order to be licensed to operate aircrafts. Airplanes, helicopters, and other aviation crafts are subject to routine maintenance and inspections. And flight crews are trained to handle bad weather, so when there is a crash, usually it was the result of a defective part or someone’s negligence.

Any type of crash or collision can have serious and harmful consequences, but when the accident involves airplanes, helicopters, or other aircraft, the devastation can affect not just the pilot and passengers, but also all those in proximity and on the ground. And those effects can be fatal.
Survivors tell us that nothing can begin to make up for such serious injuries or loss of life. As lawyers, we don’t aspire to heal your wounds and we don’t claim to be able to fix anything.
But as lawyers, we can help victims of plane and helicopter crashes start to recover. At NB&W, we know that the damages caused as a result of aviation accidents are not minor. Serious injuries require sustained medical care, which means the bills start to pile up. And serious injuries sometimes prevent someone from being able to continue working, which causes a loss of income. Financial strain affects all aspects of life – yours and your family’s.
When you have lost a family member as a result of a plane or helicopter crash, the strain on you and your family is not just financial, but also emotional. Money cannot repair this, but you should not have to struggle to make ends meet while you’re recovering from such a tragedy.
If you are a victim of an aviation accident, not only could you be entitled to reimbursement for your bills and lost wages, but you may also be able to recover compensation for permanent physical impairment, pain and suffering, and even mental anguish and emotional trauma.
