Pennsylvania Aviation Accident Lawyers
Concerns about aircraft safety have been at the forefront of the industry for the past several years, given numerous concerns and tragic aviation accidents affiliated with the Boeing 737 MAX airplane. During 2017, U.S. airlines transported a total of 849.3 million passengers: 741.6 million domestically and 107.7 internationally. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation reports that Pennsylvania has 127 public-use airports, 243 private-use airports, and 280 private-use heliports.
Of those, Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) are the busiest in the state of Pennsylvania. The United States aviation industry is governed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The aviation industry includes commercial aviation, general aviation, private aviation as well as helicopters.
While it is true that one’s chances of being injured in an airline accident are far less than being injured in an automobile accident, aviation accidents do happen. An aviation accident can cause a tremendous amount of physical and emotional damage to an individual, and in hundreds of cases annually, even death.
Aviation accidents are often quite complex, and it is important to have a legal team that is adept in the intricacies of aviation accident law. Identifying and understanding causes, responsible parties, and damages is critical to ensuring that victims of aviation accidents or loved ones of those killed in aviation accidents are properly vindicated and compensated.
What Causes an Aviation Accident?
Your Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton aviation injury lawyer will carefully collect, examine, and evaluate evidence from the incident. Many cases do not have one single and direct cause. When it comes to accidents in the aviation industry, there are so many variables that can come into play. Human error may be involved on the part of, for example, pilots, ground crew, air traffic controllers, or flight attendants.
Technological and mechanical problems can be culprits in cases involving airplanes. Product defects can also be a factor. The average person will not know what to do, what details do and don’t matter, and where to turn next. Fellerman & Ciarimboli does.
Who Can Be Held Responsible for an Aviation Accident?
Determining responsible parties for aviation accidents can be a challenge. Depending upon circumstances, any, some, or all of the following parties may be partially or entirely culpable for tangible and intangible damages:
- Airline companies
- Aircraft manufacturers
- Aircraft owners
- Air traffic controllers
The Damages You May Receive
While no amount of money can repair the turmoil and harm caused by an aviation accident, you need experienced attorneys on your side to provide the knowledge and resources necessary to hold accountable those at fault. Damages run extremely deep, including, but not limited to medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In the case of wrongful death, the surviving family can be entitled to similar damages on behalf of the victim.

I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call. I was connected to Attorney Molly Clark, who made a significant impact. Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity. Our upbeat conversations, in contrast to the challenging situation, improved my well-being.
What truly won me over was Molly's commitment to keeping me informed about the progress of my situation. Whenever I called her with questions, she promptly provided answers, ensuring I had the information I needed when I needed it. Working with Fellerman & Ciarimboli was a positive experience given the circumstances I was facing. I highly recommend Attorney Molly and the firm to anyone seeking reliable and compassionate assistance during challenging times.

There are no adequate words to convey to you, Mike, and Ed how grateful our family is for all of your hard work in helping us through the most difficult time of our lives. Your commitment to justice is unlike anything we have ever witnessed. Our tragedy became your tragedy. The three of you have become part of our family.
Harry, you explained everything necessary in terms which were comprehensible and helpful to us to better understand all that was presented. We are so grateful for that.
The compassion shown to us by not only the three of you, but everyone to whom we encountered at Fellerman & Ciarimboli was off the charts and so sincere.
We will grieve our profound loss for the rest of our lives, but all of you helped to make it a bit easier, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
