To many people, there is nothing more terrifying than the idea of being involved in an airplane crash. While commercial aviation is still one of the safest ways to travel, mistakes do happen. What should you know if you have been involved in an airplane accident?
If the airplane is privately owned, then the laws that apply would be similar to that of a car accident. But in addition to the “rules of the road,” private airline accidents often involve a malfunction, which means the manufacturer could also be liable. However, if the injury occurred in a commercial airliner, an entirely different set of rules apply.

Before a claim against an airline can be made, a careful review of all factors must be considered to determine which laws apply. For instance, factors like whether the flight was domestic or international, whether it occurred over land or water, etc., will impact the claim. Additionally, consideration must be given to the language often printed on airline tickets. Airlines often limit liability, reduce the amount of time within which a claim can be made, and determine where a claim must be made. For these reasons, it’s imperative to have a knowledgeable, experienced attorney.
