New York Airplane Accident Lawyer
Airplanes are, on average, safer than passenger cars. There are certainly far fewer crashes, especially when looking specifically at commercial airliners. Airplane accidents do happen, however. Even commercial airliners crash, as do charter planes, private jets, helicopters, small planes used for tours and short commutes, and other types of aircraft. Moreover, many airline passengers are injured inside the plane or while still at the gate. Just like any other business or premises owner, airliners have an obligation to keep passengers safe. When they fail in that duty and people get hurt or killed, they owe the injured parties and their families compensation.
If you or a loved one has been hurt or killed in a plane crash or other airplane accident anywhere in the Hudson Valley area, including Goshen, Marlboro and Kingston, contact a dedicated airplane accident attorney at Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP, for a consultation with one of our attorneys. We will pursue your claims against the biggest airliners, insurance companies, and any other parties who should be responsible for compensating you and your family for your injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other damages.
Protect Your Rights as a Passenger
If you are injured in a plane accident, or if your family member was lost or killed in a plane crash, you have the right to an investigation of the crash and to recover damages for your injuries or your loved one’s death. In many cases, we hear about insurance companies or airline employees trying to coerce accident victims into signing over their right to sue, accepting lowball settlement hush money, or otherwise dismissing the charges they have the right to file after an airline accident. Sometimes, they will tell victims that they are somehow not covered at all.
Do not get swindled into signing away your rights or simply accepting your fate after an airplane accident. After an airline injury, call a New York airplane accident lawyer to discuss the circumstances of your injury. Tell us what happened, and we will work to get you a valuable recovery. We will make sure airline and insurance representatives do not lie to you about your rights and prevent you from the compensation you deserve.
Not Every Airplane Accident is a Plane Crash
At Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello, LLP, we handle all types of injuries that occur on planes. Airplane crashes may be the first type of accident that comes to mind, but they are far from the only type of incident that can lead to passenger injury. We handle airplane injuries that result from, for example:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Flying objects
- Food poisoning
- Seatbelt and other passenger equipment malfunction
- Injuries on the beltway
- Food cart injury
- Accidents in the terminal
- Falls and other injuries during boarding
Whatever the nature of your accident, if it happened on someone else’s premises and as a result of their negligence, you could have the right to recover. Call a seasoned New York airplane injury attorney for help after your aviation injury, wherever it occurred. We will investigate the circumstances of your injury and find out what recovery you are owed, and we’ll determine how we can build the strongest case for you to receive full compensation.
