Aviation accidents often result because of poor maintenance or pilot error. Understanding the complicated nature of the issues involved requires expert analysis and state-of-the-art forensic technology. The Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd works closely with aircraft design experts, pilots, crash site investigators and air traffic control professionals to determine what caused an aviation accident.
Were you injured in an airplane accident involving an aircraft such as the following?
- Commercial jets, such as a Boeing 737, 747 or 767, or an Airbus
- Small airplanes, including tour airplane, skydiving plane, commuter plane, crop duster or private recreational airplane
Representing Victims of Airline and Plane Accidents in North Carolina and Beyond
The Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd will represent clients in the following kinds of aviation-related accidents:
- Runway incursions
- Air traffic controller errors
- Plane crashes due to maintenance errors
- Defective or malfunctioning aircraft parts
- Injuries due to sudden drops in altitude due to pilot errors
- Injuries happening while boarding and deplaning
- Airport injuries, giving cause for premises liability or products liability claims
While a majority of airplane accidents occur during landing or takeoff, pilot error or mechanical malfunction while in flight can lead to head and neck injuries from sudden drops in altitude if, for example, overhead luggage spills and strikes someone. A variety of circumstances may be causes for a wrongful death claim in the case of a fatal crash.
Uncovering the Facts in Airplane Accident Cases
Our aviation accident attorneys review flight and maintenance records, subpoena National Safety Transportation Board (NSTB) crash reports, and analyze defective parts to uncover the facts and evidence surrounding plane crashes. Isolating pilot error requires expert knowledge provided by aviation professionals familiar with different kinds of planes and flying conditions.
At the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, we consult with pilots, flight trainers and other aviation experts who testify on our clients' behalves. To provide clear explanations for the court, we use computer animation and simulations to identify what went wrong and how it could have been avoided.
