AIRPLANE & HELICOPTER ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Airplanes and helicopters are complex machines that must be designed well, built meticulously, and professionally
maintained. We understand the tragedy and frustrations experienced by aviation accident victims and our expertise
can help guide you through one of the most complex fields of law.
Statistically, air travel continues to be a relatively safe means of transportation; however, aviation accidents do occur.
Federal and state agencies have developed stringent laws to govern the airline industry and protect passengers

jurisdiction other than where the accident occurred.
The sheer number and complexity of aircraft regulations dictate that airplane accident victims receive the guidance of
aviation law experts.
Due to the ever increasing congestion on our roadways and highways commuters are using rapid transit and public
transportation more each year. In accordance with the growing number of people using buses as their main source
of transportation, the number of injuries and deaths resulting from bus accidents is also rising.
Bus accidents injure thousands and kill hundreds of people every year in the U.S. The U.S. Department of Transportation
reported that in 2003 there were over 440 fatal bus accidents and thousands of injuries.
Excessive speed, driver fatigue, faulty brake system, dangerous tire conditions and lack of training all play a role in the
number of bus accidents each year. While regulations have been instituted to prevent the number of fatalities, bus
accidents still play a major part in killing people and causing the serious injuries that occur on our highways daily.
The injuries and fatalities resulting from the negligent operation of large buses and school buses leave families confused
and angry and bus drivers who know they are not at fault scared and sometimes jobless. Always contact a lawyer as
soon as possible so they can help determine your rights, both as a victim or as a plaintiff driver or bus company.
Delays always prevent your case from proceeding swiftly.

Boating and watercraft accidents are governed by a number of city, county and/or state laws. Most boat operators have a
legal obligation to operate their watercraft in a safe manner.
Boat owners also need to be careful about allowing other people to drive their boats. No matter who is driving, if the boat
is in an accident, the boat owner may be liable for the damages.
Civil and criminal lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer when some type of failure of either the boat's
machinery or its hull caused an accident.
If you have been injured in a boating accident, the following are important steps to take to prepare for a

Our aggressive personal injury specialists and lawyers are dedicated to achieving the best possible results for seriously
injured victims and their families. Contact us NOW for a free consultation and evaluation with an experienced

found liable if their negligence lead to injury or death.
A drowning accident can take the life of any individual, but children seem to be most at risk for drowning. Never leave
children unattended around a swimming pool, jacuzzi or spa. Remember it only takes a few seconds and a small
amount of water to drown a small child.

inherent in the site and work.
The progress of a construction project is heavily documented .
Additionally, it may be important to retain an expert.

responsibility for your accident. It will be important to retain an attorney who is not only familiar with this field of law,
but willing to undertake the complexities of the case.

In order for a slip and fall victim to hold a property owner liable for an incident, the victim will have to prove the
following in order to have a clear cut premises liability case:
1. That the property owner was responsible for unsafe conditions and the subsequent slip and fall accident (by
spilling something, for example, and not cleaning it up)
2. That the property owner was aware of the condition of the property but did not try to correct it (by not posting a
warning sign, etc.)
3. That the property owner knew or should have known about the danger, since a "reasonable" person would have
found the problem and taken steps to prevent injuries caused by the slip and fall accident (This is the most common
situation, as it is not clearly defined and is determined based on common sense).
Thousands of injuries occur each year due to conditions on someone else’s property or in slip and fall type accidents.
There are, of course, certain situations where exceptions to the general slip and fall and premises liability rules come
Children, however, are an exception this is rule, since the law recognizes that children often do not perceive danger as
well as adults.
In the case of employees, there are workers' compensation laws in place that hold employers liable for most on-thejob injuries, including those that result from a slip and fall accident.
When it comes to government property, such as public parks, the federal or California state government may bear the
legal responsibility for personal injuries incurred on the premises.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident, or if you have questions regarding any premises
liability matters, a slip and fall lawyer in California can help you determine if you have a case.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT FACTS:
The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) reports that each year nearly 5,000 pedestrians die in motor
vehicle related accidents, and more than 78,000 pedestrians suffer injuries when hit by a car or truck.
In addition to pedestrian-vehicle incidents, thousands of non-vehicular pedestrian accidents also occur annually. Poor
property maintenance, sidewalk or parking lot defects and/or construction or other debris on walkways cause or
contribute to pedestrian accident injuries.
Whether a vehicle or property defect causes an accident or injury, a pedestrian may recover damages for the injuries
suffered if someone else's negligence caused or contributed to the incident.
In order to establish negligence in a pedestrian accident, the injured person (the "plaintiff") must prove that the person at
fault (the "defendant"):
1. Owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the circumstances; and
2. Failed to fulfill ("breached") that legal duty through conduct or action (or through a failure to act); and
3. Caused an accident or injury involving the plaintiff; and
4. Harmed or injured the plaintiff as a result.
If you are concerned about potential exposure to asbestos, or if you or a loved one suffers from asbestosis, mesothelioma,
or another medical condition associated with asbestos exposure, you should take action to protect your legal rights
Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that has been used as insulation and as a fire retardant in a wide variety of products. Because
of its durable, fibrous nature, asbestos can produce dust that, when inhaled, becomes deposited in the lungs -causing or contributing to the development of illnesses including asbestosis (a fibrous scarring of the lungs) and
mesothelioma (a malignant form of cancer in the lining of the chest or abdominal cavities).
Determining Responsibility for Asbestos Exposure:
In civil court lawsuits for damages, legal responsibility for injuries caused by asbestos exposure is sometimes determined
under the law of product liability. Breach of Warranty:
The amount of asbestos to which someone is exposed will vary, according to:
Plaintiffs injured by asbestos may be able to recover "punitive" damages, as well.
