Hot Air Balloon Accidents

Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Crash Attorneys – New Mexico Accident Law Firm

New Mexico is a mecca for lighter-than-air balloon flight. Every year, New Mexicans and folks from all across the USA and overseas ring in the fall season at the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

This amazing celebration of hot air balloon flight draws thousands of visitors, pilots, and hot air balloon enthusiasts from around the world. Most balloon passengers and pilots will enjoy a safe flight. However, it seems that almost every year, a hot air balloon pilot causes harm to a passenger or people on the ground due to risky, negligent balloon flying in New Mexico.

Just like airplane and helicopter pilots, hot air balloon pilots are licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration. Also like other pilots, they are subject to strict federal aviation regulations intended to promote safety and prevent hot air balloon accidents. Hot air balloon crash litigation is not your average day in court.

The nationwide hot air balloon lawyers, pilots, and investigators at The Dane Law Firm know the rules and how to apply them in order to aggressively seek compensation for those who are injured because of the negligence of balloon operators or hosts of ballooning events, like the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. If the crash was due to someone else’s negligence, The Dane Law Firm will fight to recover damages for your:
• Medical expenses
• Property damage
• Loss of consortium
