Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are having differences of opinion regarding the release of information surrounding aviation accidents. The Aviation Accident Attorneys with the law firm of Nurenberg Paris, Heller & McCarthy say the problem could slow down an investigation of a Southwest Airlines crash at the LaGuardia Airport that occurred earlier this year.
An article by the Wall Street Journal explains the NTSB investigates aviation accident causes, while the FAA is responsible for enforcement of aircraft operation regulations. The inherent natures of the two organizations can lead to disputes. The NTSB is focused on ensuring their investigations cover all possible scenarios, while the FAA is facing heavy public scrutiny for not bringing responsible parties to justice fast enough.
These differences have been exacerbated in recent years by the growing use of social media. Citizens are demanding more information faster, and the agencies are using social media to keep up. The only problem is releasing information too fast can lead to the spread of false data. This could cause the agencies to not release any information until investigations are fully completed.

That's why the firm suggests discussing your case with an attorney as soon as possible if you have been hurt in a crash involving an aircraft.

Burned out semi-truck […]
Merging onto a highway or interstate is always a little stressful, even when traffic is light. That’s because you’re required to enter the roadway at a fast enough speed to keep up with other traffic, but you may have only a hundred feet to accelerate and reach that speed. And when traffic is heavy, there […]
When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation. When surgeons make mistakes during these procedures, patients can develop serious and often fatal complications. However, there’s another type of surgery where major mistakes can happen that can also put […]
MRSA infections are one of the biggest risk factors of hospital stays, especially in people who had surgery or who are recovering from serious injuries and wounds. While they start as skin infections, they can quickly worsen and cause life-threatening infections in tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. According to a 2020 study published […]
