Determining Liability in a Texas Aviation Accident
If you have been involved in a plane crash or any other type of aircraft accident due to the negligence of the pilot, crew, or operator, you likely have grounds to seek compensation from the responsible party. Even if your injury was caused by a product defect or mechanical failure, you may still be eligible for a claim, which would be directed towards the liable aircraft manufacturer, mechanic, or parts distributor and/or retailer.
Available Compensation for Houston Aviation Accident Lawsuits
In the event of an airplane or helicopter accident, you can pursue compensation for the following:
- Current medical expenses
- Lost income resulting from treatment and physical limitations
- Future lost earnings due to disability or death
- Funeral and burial costs
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Expenses related to lifelong medical care for permanent, disabling, or disfiguring injuries
- Loss of companionship, guidance, and household services in cases of wrongful death
To secure compensation successfully, it is essential to prove the liability of the responsible party. This often requires the assistance of a legal professional who will meticulously construct your claim by examining technical documents for evidence, reconstructing the accident, collaborating with technical experts, reaching out to witnesses, and employing other strategies.
Statute of Limitations on Aviation Accident Claims in Texas
In Texas, the statute of limitations is generally as follows:
Personal Injury Claims: For personal injury claims resulting from aviation accidents, the statute of limitations is typically two years from the date of the accident.
Wrongful Death Claims: If the aviation accident resulted in a fatality, and you are pursuing a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased, the statute of limitations is also generally two years from the date of death.
Under the General Aviation Revitalization Act of 1994, there is an exception for aircraft accidents where "a person must bring a civil action against an aircraft manufacturer for damages for death or injury or damage to property arising from a general aviation aircraft accident." Claimants may have up to 18 years to file a claim for general aviation aircraft and parts.
It is important to note that the legal deadlines for aviation accident claims vary depending on factors such as the type of aircraft involved, the location of the accident or incident, and the responsible party. For instance, if your claim involves a state or government agency, you may be required to file a separate government claim for approval before pursuing a legal claim through the civil justice system.
To ensure compliance with the deadlines relevant to your claim, it is advisable to consult a Houston aviation accident attorney promptly after sustaining an injury.
