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.
