Commercial airline crashes make headlines with good reason. Often the death toll is very large. However, small private plane crashes claim lives every year as well.
Aviation law covers commercial, private and military plane crashes. Different rules and regulations apply depending on what type of plane was involved, and both state and federal laws can come into play. For these reasons and more, aviation law is complex. That's why it's essential for victims and surviving family members to retain the services of a law firm experienced in aviation law.
Too often, surviving family members and victims accept settlements offered by airlines and their insurance companies before a full investigation of the crash has been done. However, these settlements can have strings attached that prevent victims and families from taking legal action later and getting the compensation that is rightfully due them. It's important to retain the right to file a claim against the airline, the manufacturer of the plane, the pilot and any other person or entity eventually determined to be responsible for the crash.
At Freidin Brown, P.A., we understand that in the aftermath of a plane crash, people are often overwhelmed by shock and grief. That's all the more reason not to make any decisions that could have significant financial impact down the road. Aircraft injury lawsuits have statutes of limitations, though, so it's important to seek legal guidance immediately to protect your rights.
