Brooklyn NYC Airplane and Airport Accident Lawyer

Aviation and airport accident lawyer

At the aviation accident injury law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, we are all too aware of the accidents that can occur in our city’s busy airports and airspace. According to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, nearly 117 million passengers traveled through JFK and LaGuardia airports in 2017.  Given the large international NY airports, including Buffalo Niagara, Greater Rochester, Albany, Syracuse Hancock, and smaller airports such as Westchester County and Long Island  MacArthur, and many other smaller public and private airports and airstrips throughout New York,  accidents in the air and on the ground at the airport do occur. Our experienced Staten Island and Brooklyn airplane accident attorney, have the knowledge, experience, and the resources to handle the complexities of aviation litigation, whether it is a single-engine plane, helicopter, or passenger jet, including dealing with  federal authorities, such as the Federal Aviation Agency  (FAA), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), as well as state and local authorities and agencies.
Our airport accident lawyers also handle accidents that occur outside of the aircraft, including falls on an automated walkway, pedestrian accidents,  as well as airport bus and other motor vehicle transportation accidents which often cause serious injury. If you or somebody you care about has been injured or killed in a major commercial airline, regional carrier, private charter, corporate jet, military contractor, small plane, general aviation, private aviation, terrorist-related, or helicopter accident, or has suffered an injury at an airport, the insurance companies will try to persuade you to take a quick and woefully inadequate settlement. Before you talk to an insurance company, talk to us. The complicated nature of these accidents may and often does involve multiple parties with liabilities.  At the Bisogno &  Meyerson law firm, we make sure that you get maximum compensation for your aircraft or airport accident — particularly in the case of catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.


New York Lawyers Aviation Accident Claim

Aviation litigation is complicated and involves federal regulations (and sometimes international law) and state and local legal issues. While we are attorneys in Brooklyn, located near JFK airport we are also courtroom veterans, skilled negotiators and well-versed in the applicable aviation laws, as well as international, New York State, municipal and local laws — and whether the plane crash or airport accident happened at LaGuardia Airport in Queens or upstate at Buffalo Niagara International Airport, we know how to value your injury claim and can and will work with top aviation experts to help support it. When an aircraft accident occurs, our law firm, utilizing its vast resources, has the ability to prove that the liable parties were negligent, and otherwise did not meet the standard for safe aircraft operation.


New York Lawyers Aviation Accident Claims

Airport accidents — such as slip and falls, traffic accidents or negligent security matters — may seem more straightforward. However, since many airports are run by a government agency or entity, for example, the Port Authority of NY & NJ (PANYNJ) is responsible for JFK, LGA, EWR, TEB, & SWF Airports which means that special litigation requirements may apply. If you have been injured on airport property, whether as a passenger on a taxi or bus, or a pedestrian walking in the airport, it is important that you seek legal counsel right away, as filing deadlines in which to commence a legal action, by filing a Notice of Claim (NOC) for your injuries, may be limited to ninety (90) days, with the very rear exception of catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. At Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP., we are Brooklyn attorneys who can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your Aviation or airport accident injuries.

Airplane accidents do not occur as frequently as other modes of private or public mass transit; however when a plane accident does take place it often unfortunately often results in absolute fatalities. Most people do not realize the frequency airplane accidents do occur because, generally, only the accidents with fatalities are covered in the media.  However, many Aviation accidents do occur and involve light aircraft including small Cessna, Piper, and Beechcraft airplanes, as well as various types of helicopters.  Many plane accidents happen on the runway because of air traffic control and other miscommunication problems and other errors that can cause an aviation accident for aircraft in flight or planes taxiing to and from the airport terminal for takeoff departure or landing on arrival. Airplane accidents have a high potential for death and injury due to the speed and height at which planes travel.  Most airplane accidents are the result of human error and mechanical difficulties, including, for example, depressurization of the cabin. In many instances, an aviation accident has created so much damage that understanding how the aviation accident happened can be difficult. The NTSB and FAA are in charge of investigating aviation accidents in order to understand what may have contributed to the airplane or helicopter accident happening. At Bisogno & Meyerson, a qualified aviation attorney working with aviation engineers and experts will appraise individuals or loved ones of all of their rights and options regarding their aviation accident crash disaster. Even in seemingly minor plane accidents, a passenger can experience injuries in addition to extreme emotional distress. Generally, airplane crashes could have been easily prevented if the correct standards and procedures are followed and if they were not, our aviation accident lawyers will seek appropriate compensatory damages. Recovering your damages for your aircraft accident-related injuries starts with an evaluation of your case.

We speak Spanish, French, and Portuguese, and can arrange to meet you at the hospital or at your home.

Workers Third-Party Accident Claims

If the injuries from your Aviation or Airport work area accident were caused by the negligence or reckless behavior of someone other than your employer or co-worker, for example, if you are an airport worker and a construction contractor, unrelated to your employment, creates a negligent condition,  causing you to sustain a serious physical injury, the construction company or person responsible for the defect, lack of maintenance or disrepair, without maintaining it or marking it off with a danger area warnings,  could be liable in a personal injury action, for injuries sustained from the accident, and you may also be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the airport or building owner, through what is known as a third-party-liability claim.   You can file a personal injury claim for your injuries sustained in the accident at the airport, in addition to collecting workers compensation. This allows you to recover damages including pain and suffering, loss of consortium and other compensation that is not recoverable under New York workers compensation laws.

Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws

N.Y. LAB. LAW § 240 : NY Code – Section 240: Scaffolding and other devices for use of employees

New York provides additional protection for construction area fall workers under several sections of the State Labor Laws. These include: N.Y. LAB. LAW § 200 : NY Code – Section 200: General duty to protect health and safety of employees; enforcement may make a property owner or contractor liable for an injury that occurred as a result of a hazardous condition of which they were aware or should have been aware. Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility. As your attorneys, we can explain your construction area fall area fall options in detail. We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
