Airplane Crashes

EAviation-related injuries result in approximately 1000 hospitalizations each year in the United States, with an in-hospital mortality rate of 2%.

An aviation accident claim is a complex legal process; just gathering all the relevant evidence can be very difficult.

The National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) collects data and attempts to determine the reason for the crash. However, NTSB investigators may not seek out everyone who would be legally responsible for a victim’s injury or death.

An important legal question in airplane crash cases is determining the correct law that establishes the rights of the victims and which court can consider the claim. The circumstances surrounding the accident, the responsible parties, and other legal factors, will determine whether federal law, or the law of a particular state, will govern your claim.
