Aviation Accident Litigator in California

Last updated on June 25, 2024

Surviving an aviation mishap can make you feel lucky, even if you are left seriously injured. However, once you grasp the accident’s full impact, that sense of good fortune will likely diminish.

At the Law Offices of John H. Howard in Oxnard, California, attorney John H. Howard and his team offer 45-plus years of experience in aviation law. We handle individual cases and mass torts alike, providing free case consultations to the injured with no upfront cost.

Understanding Aviation Accidents And Negligence

Airplane accidents can seriously harm passengers and ground bystanders alike. Often, negligence plays a role in aircraft and helicopter accidents, directly causing injuries or contributing to them:

  • Pilot error (fatigue, intoxication, inexperience)
  • Improper aircraft maintenance
  • Defective parts
  • Air traffic control errors

A thorough investigation by a reputable lawyer can help determine the specific cause of the accident, pointing the way to a legal remedy.

The Devastating Impact Of Aviation Crashes

The consequences of plane crashes can be catastrophic, often resulting in severe injuries like these:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Wrongful death

Associated consequences include emotional and financial strain, high medical costs, lost income, and psychological trauma (anxiety, PTSD).

Seeking Compensation After An Aviation Accident

When negligence causes or contributes to aircraft accident injuries, you may be entitled to compensation, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death benefits (for families of those who died)

Mass torts can be a powerful tool for holding negligent parties accountable and obtaining the compensation you deserve. We have considerable experience managing mass torts and individual cases.
