Whether it be by commercial airliner or private plane, air travel has become commonplace in our society. With this surge in travel comes an increased frequency of aviation accidents. These accidents, which often have life-altering consequences, may be caused by a number of factors, including air traffic controller negligence, pilot error, or defectively designed equipment.
In the aftermath of an aviation accident, a multitude of federal and local investigations will be conducted by government agencies, including the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, as well as investigations conducted by local authorities and various insurance companies which may be involved. This can be a stressful and confusing time for victims and their families, and therefore it is important for injured victims to seek effective legal assistance as they try to wade through the process in an effort to obtain the damages to which they are rightfully entitled.
