St. George Personal Injury Attorney | Utah Airplane Aviation Injury Accident Lawyer | Washington, Iron, Kane, Sevier & Salt Lake County.


Most airline travel is generally very safe. Statistics show that flying in a commercial airline is four times safer than driving an automobile.  However, smaller single engine airplanes and charter airplanes are a different story. Those aircraft have an accident and death rate seven times higher than automobiles.  As both commercial and private airplane travel is expected to double over the next two decades, the number of airplane related accidents and injuries will increase exponentially.

Aviation accidents occur for a variety of reasons, the common of which are pilot error, air traffic controller error, improper maintenance and mechanical component issues such as engine failure. Aircraft passengers must rely entirely on the pilots, mechanics and air traffic controllers for their safety. Virtually any negligent act by these individuals can lead to disaster; too often aviation negligence results in catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths.

Additionally, other, nonfatal injuries can and do regularly occur during flights due to weather conditions, turbulence, luggage and other improperly stored objects falling or flying about the cabin and even food poisoning.
