Maryland Airplane Accident Attorney

Experienced Washington DC and Maryland Airplane Accident Lawyer – Attorney Walter E. Laake, Jr.


While air travel is one of the safest ways to travel, sometimes accidents will happen due to faulty equipment, pilot errors and negligence.  It's important that if you're the victim of such negligence, or you've lost a loved one because of it, that you contact Maryland airplane accident lawyer Walter E. Laake, Jr. to discuss your case and determine whether negligence occurred and, if so, who should be held responsible for your losses.

Small aircraft are statistically involved in more accidents than other type of aircraft.  Owners and operators are responsible for following safe flight procedures and properly maintaining their aircraft. If an accident occurs because of negligence, owners and operators of small aircraft can be held accountable. Commercial airlines have vast financial resources to ensure that their equipment is in excellent condition and their maintenance crew, flight staff and pilots are highly trained and competent.  But still, negligence occurs and accidents happen.

Not all airline accidents are catastrophic crashes where everyone aboard is killed.  Sometimes more minor accidents will occur causing injury to some or most of the passengers, such as when planes slide off the runway, or crash lands in the event of an emergency.  Airline accidents can cause a great deal of trauma, including emotional anguish and a fear of flying on any kind of transportation.
