Aviation law is a unique combination of federal laws that govern the conduct of the airlines as well as tort law, which is what allows victims and their families to receive just compensation for their suffering. In order to have the best chances for success with your aviation accident claim, you need to get the help of an attorney who has direct experience in these areas.
One of the most essential aspects of an aviation accident claim will be identifying the at-fault party. Aviation accidents are complex, and there are many possible liable parties, including:
- Air traffic control staff
- The airline
- The manufacturer of the plane or helicopter
- The owner of the plane or helicopter
- Aviation component manufacturers
- Aircraft maintenance service companies
If your loved one did not survive the accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim against the party accountable for loss of support, companionship, and financial costs. The exact amount of compensation you can receive will vary depending on the details of your accident.
