Aviation law governs the operation of aircraft and the maintenance of aviation facilities. Both federal and state governments have enacted statutes and created administrative agencies to regulate air traffic. Individuals and their families have the right to recover financial compensation when a manufacturer or airline acts negligently in designing, building, maintaining, or operating an airplane or helicopter and an individual is injured or killed as a result.

We understand how to navigate this highly complex area of law and can help you pursue the justice and compensation you are owed. We proudly serve clients throughout the state of Texas, offering compassionate, personalized legal services and aggressive advocacy.

What Are Runway Incursions?
Another source of aviation-related injury is known as “runway incursion.”
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) defines a runway incursion as:
"Any occurrence at an airport involving an aircraft, vehicle, person, or object on the ground that creates a collision hazard or results in loss of separation with an aircraft taking off, intending to take off, landing, or intending to land."
Pilot error, air traffic controller error, or ground personnel error can cause runway incursions. The consequences of runway incursions range from minor aircraft or vehicle damage to catastrophic injuries and loss of life.
