Drones are not just toys; they present real hazards

Drones, also referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are popular devices with children and adults. They are also used by some businesses to carry out tasks. As they grow in popularity, however, their potential for causing serious injuries is becoming clearer.

Head injuries, facial lacerations, eye injuries, hand injuries, broken bones and scarring are possible consequences of drone accidents. Drones and UAVs can also knock people over, causing injuries from the fall. If you have been injured, what can you do to seek compensation? Finding out the cause of the accident is one step.

Operator error is certainly one factor in drone accident and injury cases. If people use drones incorrectly or in dangerous conditions, they risk hurting themselves or others. Flying the drone in windy conditions or too close to people or other objects can be very dangerous.

Product defects can also cause drone accidents. Defective parts, including battery failures, may make the drone difficult or impossible to operate safely. If the battery, remote control or another part fails, the drone may fall from the air and hit the user or an innocent bystander.

In either case, speaking with a personal injury lawyer will give you a better idea of your rights and next steps. Depending on the specifics of the accident, you may have a case against the drone’s owner and/or manufacturer. An attorney can assess your case and investigate the accident to determine who is liable for your injuries and related losses.

The sooner you talk to an attorney, the sooner you will know how to proceed. As with all accident and injury cases, the earlier your attorney begins investigating your case, the better the chance of recovering evidence.

"They took a case that others would have stayed clear of.."
I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
