Should I file a lawsuit against an airline after a commercial airline accident?

Deciding whether to file a lawsuit against an airline can be a complicated decision. Besides deciding whether this is the best strategy to obtain the compensation you rightfully deserve, you need to consider many other issues, including:

  • Where is the best place to file your lawsuit?
  • Should you sue the airline or its insurance company?
  • Should you sue the airplane manufacturer if a mechanical issue caused the accident?

All of these issues need to be carefully considered. We can help you address every single one of them. You can also learn more about airline accidents on our page devoted to frequently asked questions about airline accidents.
