The residents of the state of Alaska often use aircrafts to daily commute to and from work. Alaska also is plagued by aircraft accidents with an average of one hundred accidents a year, which is one of the highest in the U. S. It has become common for aircraft accidents to occur in Alaska- so much so that in May 2016 the FAA issued an unprecedented warning to Alaska’s charter and commuter air operators as a result of a yearlong spike in aircraft accidents.
While at times aircraft accidents are a result of unforeseen occurrences due to Alaska’s difficult terrain and treacherous weather, the human element more often than not plays a large role in the cause of the accidents; whether as a result of the pilot or the maintenance ground crew or the manufacturer of the aircraft itself. As such, passengers often suffer injuries in some cases, while in other cases such accidents result in fatalities. If you or your loved one was injured as a result of an aircraft accident you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and any other losses you suffered as a result of the aircraft accident.
Alaskan attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of their clients for aircraft accident casualties. Aircraft accidents require in-depth investigations into highly technical engineering and forensic issues- and further requires visiting the crash site to carry out further investigations.
