There are many factors that determine what an airline company is responsible for in the event of an accident or crash landing. Airline companies are responsible for properly maintaining their aircraft and providing passengers safe flights. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the damages the passengers suffer, including:
If you lost a loved one in a crash, you may also be entitled to compensation for:
Aviation accidents can be caused by a number of situations, including:
At Nurenberg Paris, it’s our job to evaluate the evidence of your accident to determine every contributing factor that led to the crash. We’ll also investigate what could have been to prevent the accident from occurring.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has established regulation guides and procedures for NTSB staff to follow when launching an investigation of an aviation accident.
At the beginning of the investigation process, the NTSB forms a “Go Team” that evaluates the accident scene as quickly as possible and determines the different types of technical expertise required to solve the complex issues of that particular case. Each Go Team has investigators responsible for closely examining the operations, structures, power plants, systems, air traffic control, weather, human performance, and survival factors related to the aviation accident.
Sometimes the investigation process takes months, with public hearings, tests, and analysis taking place, before the final report is presented. The final report includes the NTSB’s conclusions, probable causes, and safety recommendations to avoid similar accidents from occurring in the future. It is not uncommon for the final report to be released more than a year after a crash. Our investigation will proceed at a much faster pace.
NTSB investigators, and often the manufacturer of the airplane, engine, or key components, are involved in the NTSB investigation. The only party not invited to participate in the NTSB investigation is the victim and/or his or her family. This is the most important reason why you should retain a lawyer immediately.
Your lawyer from Nurenberg Paris will preserve all material evidence, interview witnesses, and investigate the crash separate and apart from the NTSB to protect your legal rights.
If you have been injured in an aviation accident as the result of an airline company or manufacturer’s negligence, or you’ve been harmed by an airline or airport employee, you should seek the legal counsel of an aviation accident lawyer. The company responsible for your injuries will have a legal team ready to defend its actions—so should you.
Aviation law is complicated, and the investigative process requires extensive knowledge and research. Don’t face this alone. Nurenberg Paris can walk you through the legal process and help you get the compensation you’re owed.
