Evaluating an Aviation Accident Claim

Aviation accidents are evaluated by the NTSB, a federal agency. It could be many months before the cause of the accident is identified. Pilot error is the most common cause, as well as system failure, improper maintenance, severe weather conditions, and other situations. While waiting for a report from the NTSB, medical bills or loss of income from a loved one creates a situation of extreme stress that compounds the emotional stress that families face. It is necessary to ensure that you are protected by legal counsel familiar with negotiating fair settlements in aviation accidents if you or a family member has been injured or killed.

The facts that are investigated include the data from the "black box" or flight data recorder, cockpit voice recorder if the aircraft was equipped with it, and all of the aircraft's systems. In some cases, the cause is identified quickly, while in other cases, it could take many weeks or months as the plane is reassembled and evaluated. In some cases, the investigation has taken years, while in others it may be less complex.

In either case, legal representation should be protecting your interests throughout the process. The amount of financial compensation recovered is usually significantly higher when the injury claim is managed by a legal professional who is focused on protecting the rights of the injured or the family.
