Understanding the legal recourse available in Florida is crucial for those affected. Attorney Gabriel J.

Understanding Your Rights After an Aircraft Accident in Florida

Immediate Actions Post-Accident:

  • Prioritize medical attention for any injuries.
  • Report the incident to the appropriate authorities and gather relevant information.
  • Document the scene and collect witness testimonies if possible.

Aircraft Safety and Liability:

Airlines are required to implement reasonable safety procedures. This includes seat and aisle inspections, securing items, and ensuring passenger safety.

Airline liability falls under the ‘common carrier’ duty, requiring utmost care and diligence in operation, maintenance, inspection, loading, and boarding.

Determining Liability in Aircraft Accidents:

  • Airlines may be liable for negligence by their employees or for failing to maintain safe conditions.
  • Liability can extend to aircraft manufacturers, sellers, repairers, and air traffic controllers under certain circumstances.
  • The concept of ‘contributory negligence’ may apply if the victim is partially at fault.
