Are Aviation Injuries Different?

An injury or death which occurs in relation to aviation calls for sound knowledge of aviation and the particular laws which apply. Important legal rights can be lost if these rules are not closely followed.

For example, one of the shortest deadlines arises when someone is injured or dies due to the negligence of an air traffic controller. Since these persons are employees of the United States Government, the claim is made against the United States under the Federal Tort Claims Act and must be filed within 180 days from the date of injury. If this short claim filing deadline is missed, the right to recover may be lost forever. Claims against the pilot may have longer deadlines which vary depending upon the facts of the individual case.

After an aircraft injury occurs, a prompt investigation is critical to determine the cause, whether the accident was the fault of the air traffic controller, the pilot, the manufacturer, or was caused by improper maintenance. The right investigation and evaluation often leads to a prompt resolution of the claim.

An aviation injury or death requires specialized knowledge. Make sure you have the right representation by an attorney who is truly qualified in aviation law.
