Are aircraft crashes and helicopter crashes different from other types of personal injury cases?

Interesting question. And yes, they are different in many ways…

Aircraft crash cases are very complicated.The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) collects information from the crash scene and ultimately makes a report, but this may be delayed a good while. An experienced  aircraft crash attorney will be interviewing witnesses and hiring aeronautic and accident reconstructionists in the meantime.

The lawyer will be considering questions as to which law applies, State law or Federal Law.

Airline crashes may be due to defective equipment, pilot error or FAA regulations that were ignored or not followed.

There may also be wrongdoing on the part of an Air Traffic Controller.

There are also very short time deadlines in some of these cases.

If you or a family member or friend are investigating these issues, please do not hesitate to call me.

I have connections to other experienced aviation attorney’s throughout the United States.
