Aviation Accidents

Aviation Accident Attorneys in San Francisco

Representing Victims and Their Families Since 1980

There are few accidents more serious than aviation accidents. Whether the aircraft is a jumbo jet, a small plane, a helicopter, an ultra-light, or a hot air balloon, the risk of fatality is high. Many aviation accidents are preventable, however, if all staff and professionals involved take proper precautions and adhere to established rules and regulations.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident involving an aircraft of any make, Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn (RFTM) has the resources, skills, and experience to represent you in a personal injury case. We can also fight for the rights of surviving family members in a wrongful death case. To learn more about what we can do for you after you have been a victim of an aviation accident, contact our San Francisco law firm today.

Seek Financial Compensation for Your Trauma

Any injury resulting from an aviation accident has an incredibly high chance of being catastrophic, if not fatal. It is for this reason that it is so important that aviation staff members, such as pilots and maintenance workers, never make a mistake or lose concentration. When they do, lives will be at stake and they must be held accountable for the injuries they cause.

  • An aviation accident can be caused by:
  • Defective equipment
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Falsified inspection records
  • Dangerous runway conditions
  • Inadequate pilot training
