Aviation Accident Lawyer in Champaign

Pursue Damages & Justice with Our Skilled Legal Team

Whenever an aviation accident occurs, various news and media outlets are quick to release tragic footage and share whatever limited information is available. This is because aircraft accidents are extremely rare, but often lead to significant injuries and mass fatalities. Even so, aircraft travel is still estimated to be the safest method of transportation currently available. However, aviation accidents technically don’t just take place in the sky. You can be injured before you even step foot on the plane.

At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, we represent the following cases:

  • Personal injuries on commercial flights
  • Airport injuries
  • Ramp injuries
  • Injuries while boarding or disembarking
  • Wrongful death

Determining negligence in an aviation accident case is usually the most difficult part of filing a personal claim. There are many technical factors that need to be considered before your claim can even be filed. At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, our aviation accident attorney in Champaign has the necessary legal experience and resources to thoroughly investigate your case, determine the cause of the accident, and help you identify the negligent party.

We represent passengers, pilots, and crew members. Contact our aviation accident attorney in Champaign at (866) 891-9211 to learn more about your legal rights.

Determining Negligence

It’s an unfortunate reality, but most aviation accidents are caused by preventable human errors. It’s our job as your legal team to help you determine which negligent parties are responsible for your injuries and losses. In many cases, employees of the airline company knew about the potential hazard and failed to remedy the problem to prevent injuries.

Negligent parties may include:

  • Pilots
  • Repair crews
  • Air traffic controllers
  • Airplane manufacturers

Our aviation accident attorney, Steven M. Sandler, is a certified pilot and an adjunct professor of aviation product liability law. He is extremely knowledgeable about aviation regulations and international treaties. With his keen legal acumen and technical understanding of aircrafts, Attorney Sandler has the resources and experience to maximize your claim.
