Nobody wants to be the victim of a plane or helicopter crash. Families don’t want to lose a loved one to these devastating events. However, they are an unfortunate incident and they sometimes occur. When they do, while hiring a lawyer cannot fix what was done, it can help the victim or the family seek justice to hold the negligent party accountable. Taking legal action is a tedious task, so it’s important to know which questions to ask a Philadelphia aviation accident attorney before moving forward.
If you are the victim of the plane or helicopter crash, determining if you have a case means proving negligence and liability. If you are the family member of a victim, it may depend on your status and relationship to the victim. Filing a lawsuit as a family member means understanding wrongful death laws and knowing who can file a lawsuit.
It’s important to note that your ability to recover damages varies and there are some situations where individuals may not be able to seek compensation. If you are eligible to seek compensation, however, you may be able to recover damages for lost income, medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Let’s be honest: most individuals dealing with a situation such as an aviation crash aren’t in the best financial position. With medical bills and treatments looming, most victims fail to seek legal help because they are not sure they can afford it. At The Beasley Firm, we offer contingency fees and free case evaluations. This means our clients don’t pay us a dime unless we’re able to win for them, and even then, our fees come from the recovered amount.
There are a number of firms out there who represent injury victims. Very few of them, though, carry the same advantage we do. Our lead attorney, Jim Beasley Jr., is a commercial pilot and has years of experience operating various types of aircrafts. He has a deep understanding of what can go wrong and how accidents can occur. This gives us a distinct edge because we know what to look for to help prove negligence.
