Who is responsible for an aviation accident?
The party responsible for compensating you for your injuries or loss depends largely on why the accident took place. Aviation accidents require an independent, in-depth investigation to determine what happened, why it happened, and who is liable for compensating you. If you were involved in an accident, whether or not it was a plane or helicopter crash, or you lost a family member in an incident, it’s important that you contact an experienced aviation attorney today.
The airlines and helicopter operating companies will have lawyers working to protect them immediately. You should get a lawyer working to protect your rights as soon as possible, too!
Depending on what independent and federal and state authorities’ investigations uncover, the liable party may include the:
- Airline or air carrier
- Third-party maintenance provider

- Aircraft or part manufacturer
- Air traffic controller
- Airport personnel
