Military Plane Crash Injuries

Ready to Help Whenever You Need Us

We know who to talk to, where to find answers, and what steps you need to take. Let us put more than 40 years of experience to work for you. Military plane and helicopter crashes kill dozens of armed forces members each year. Many of these crashes could have been prevented. Some result from the use of old aircraft that were unfit for service, others from new aircraft with a design defect. In other cases there are gross lapses of safety procedures or pilots with inadequate training.

Taking Action

Military Service Personnel (Active Duty, Reservists, and National Guard) are severely restricted in taking legal action against the government. However, lawsuits may be brought against the manufacturers of military aircraft.

Private citizens injured by military aircraft can sue the government under the Federal Tort Claims Act. The Act allows the United States to be sued “as if it were a private person,” for the negligent acts or omissions of its employees. Under the Act the victim must file a claim with the responsible agency within two years of the injury, among other requirements.

If you or someone you love has been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact us today for a free legal consultation.
