Airplane & Helicopter Accidents

Our team at Golightly & Associates understand that aviation accident law is different from any other area of the law. Many different individuals and corporations can be the cause of an aviation accident. Other parties besides the airline carrier may be held responsible for the injuries or wrongful death resulting from an airplane or helicopter crash; including the plane manufacturer and their subcontractors and air traffic control. It is important to understand that different laws exist for commercial and private flights.

Our attorneys are intimately familiar with these laws and how they apply to airplane crash or helicopter crash victims and their families. You need an attorney that understands these agreements and is familiar with their nuances.

A non-commercial flight has different laws that govern it. Typically, a private aircraft and its pilot and/or mechanics must use ordinary and reasonable care in the operation and maintenance of a plane. The owner of the plane involved in a crash can be held liable for the negligence of a mechanic or pilot. The Golighty & Associates legal team will conduct a thorough investigation, including hiring aviation industry experts, to determine the causes of the accident and which parties are liable.

Individuals who have suffered an injury or loss resulting from a airplane crash, helicopter crash,  or airline or crew negligence while on the ground or in the air deserve representation. Call our Law Firm of Golightly & Associates, if you or a loved one has suffered injuries or wrongful death, whether in the air or on the ground, due to an airplane or helicopter crash.
