Why Is Aviation Accident Law Different?


A: Aviation law is different from other forms of personal injury law, because most injury law is based on state law. In aviation law, federal entities (the FAA and the NTSB) have regulations in place that preempt state laws. If the case is international the Montreal Convention may control the litigation. Your attorney needs to understand these issues and not learn, for the first time, the complexity that exists in aviation accident cases while dealing with your case.

Flight crew members, airline owner(s), manufacturers, maintenance personnel, and air traffic controllers are the ones most frequently named as defendants. You need an attorney who can quickly and correctly identify potential defendants in aircraft accident cases.
