Plane Skids Off Runway at LaGuardia

Because commercial airplanes are such large and complicated pieces of machinery, any deviation from normal operations can be dangerous. Aviation experts often look at various categories of cases, including the most perilous kinds of failure-related crashes and landing problems. Still, some airplane accidents can occur on the runway before the plane ever gets off the ground.

March reports on CBS news affiliates showed a plane at LaGuardia Airport leaving its lane on a runway and crashing into a fence to run aground very near an area of Flushing Bay nearby. Only the combination of the fence and snowdrifts from winter weather stopped the plane from falling into the water. 127 passengers and five crew members were evacuated, a few of them with minor injuries. Some were treated at local New York and New Jersey hospitals.

Assessing Airplane Accidents
In situations where aircraft accidents caused injury, local injury lawyers have to look closely at what unfolded both in air and on the ground. Various parties can be held legally responsible for compensating injury victims when negligence or inattention to public safety contributed to an accident.

For instance, attorneys must look into whether pilots, crew members and others were properly trained, screened and supervised prior to an accident; whether an aircraft was in safe and serviceable condition at the time of the incident and whether safety protocols were followed in the course of flight operation.

New York injury attorneys help clients deal with any challenges to their personal injury cases, including statute of limitations issues, burdens of documentation and fact-finding and proper legal preparations for a case. Qualified injury lawyers support their clients by helping them understand their options and possible outcomes in an injury case.

Skilled attorneys also prevent injury victims from being “low-balled” such that acceptance of an initial settlement offer may leave a victim’s family woefully under-compensated to deal with extensive medical bills and other mounting costs. Additionally, having legal counsel on your side can be a great benefit in the long run in that they can show you how to deal firmly and fairly with insurance companies and other potentially liable parties.

It is important for injury victims to understand how to get quick and impartial medical care and document their injuries after an accident, and the help that a capable lawyer can offer in this regard can be invaluable.
