For the same reason Colorado is popular with outdoor enthusiasts and motorists of all kinds, our state is also a hub of aviation activity in our clear blue skies. Pilots ranging from small recreational aerobatics to military-grade training and missions fly across Colorado.

If and when something serious happens, such as wrongful death, our legal team is trained in the complex aviation laws established to protect survivors and those affected by such a significant tragedy.

Establishing your case

Many times, people who cause personal injury accidents are often unwilling to admit fault or pay where compensation is due. If that’s the case in your situation, we’ll advocate on your behalf to get you the support you need.

In order to hold someone legally responsible for an aviation accident, the injured person must prove that at least one responsible party failed to meet an industry standard related to operation of the aircraft, engineering, or a regulatory issue. Our legal team can help you understand who is ultimately legally liable for any damages, which may include the pilot, the airline(s), the owner of the aircraft, the manufacturer of the aircraft or its key parts, the aircraft maintenance provider, the government (for possible negligence by air traffic controllers or weather services), or airport operators.

The laws in these circumstances cover both commercial air carrier and general or recreational aviation accidents. General aviation includes all noncommercial aircraft like small planes, business jets, charter flights, helicopters, and even hang gliders. Common liability or error can include:

  • Pilot error
  • Faulty equipment
  • Federal Aviation Administration regulations violations
  • Structural or design problems
  • Negligence of Flight Service Station employees
  • Negligence of Federal Air Traffic Controllers
