Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are not just toys. Children, adults, businesses and government entities use them. While some UAVs are small and lightweight, commercial and government UAVs are often larger and heavier. Any UAV that is not used properly, however, has the potential to cause injury.

If you have been injured by a UAV, you may not know what to do next. It’s not surprising; this is an emerging area of law. You can speak with a lawyer to learn about your rights in UAV accident cases. Depending on the specifics of the accident, you may have a case against the owner, operator and/or manufacturer of the UAV.

Accident reports of drones and UAVs include incidents such as:

  • Flying into crowds
  • Falling out of the sky
  • Hitting people in the head
  • Propellers and rotors cutting people’s hands and faces
  • Causing property damage

UAV accidents often cause injuries to the hands, eyes and head. Lacerations, loss of vision, scarring and brain injuries are possible. If these injuries are severe, you may need compensation from the negligent party to cover your medical expenses and related losses.

Getting legal help may be necessary

These types of cases may involve complex insurance issues, especially if there are multiple liable parties. You will most likely need an attorney’s help to work through these issues and to handle the insurance companies for you.

Personal injury attorneys do this sort of work every day. They can answer your questions and help you determine how to move forward. If you have a potential UAV injury case, discuss it with a lawyer to ensure you know your options.
