When do you need an Aviation Lawyer?

If your injury was caused by – or related to – an Aviation Activity, you should have an Aviation Lawyer representing you because he or she will be familiar with – and understand –  the specific aviation facts and circumstances of your  aviation accident.

Why do you need an Aviation Lawyer?

Because aviation crashes often include death or significant injuries, your lawyer should be very experienced in all of the following aviation elements:  Piloting – Weather – Aircraft Maintenance and Air Traffic Control.  In addition to those areas, your aviation attorney should also have experience in dealing with Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) that pertain to your specific accident, e.g. was it a flight for pleasure under FAR Part 91 or was it a Chartered Flight pursuant to FAR 135 or was it an Airline Flight conducted under FAR 121?  All of that can make a difference in your outcome!
