Concerns after losing a loved one in an aviation accident

Your loved one has been killed in an aviation accident. Naturally, you are likely in extreme shock and mourning the loss of someone you love. At the same time, many people feel a sense of frustration or even anger that something like this could have happened. So what is the next step?

Some people may think going to speak with the airline’s insurance company is the right first step. While it may seem like a logical step, it’s important to remember that insurance companies are commercial institutions that are trying to save money. A wise step to take is to contact a lawyer who can represent your best interests in the case.

In some cases, you might be able to get away with using just a general lawyer, but there are definite benefits to working with a law firm that specializes in aviation accidents. This may be especially true if you are dealing with a commercial airline.

It’s also important to remember that cases have time restrictions. While it is important to take time to mourn, it’s also vital that you keep an eye on the statute of limitations. Conversely, never let a lawyer rush you into signing a retainer. You likely have at least a year to take action in court, so give yourself time to consider various lawyers until you find one that makes you feel comfortable.

This type of legal situation is one that most people never imagine themselves in, so it can understandably be very stressful. Working with an experienced attorney can hopefully help alleviate some of that stress.
