Airplane Crashes

If a loved one is injured or tragically killed in an airline accident, the victim's family is faced with many challenges. Initially there are an overwhelming number of questions that must be answered.

Ultimately, the questions come down to, "Why did this happen?" There are of course numerous federal and local government agencies that devote tireless effort in pursuing the truth about an airplane crash.

Often their answers educate but do not comfort the families of those who have been brutally affected. A comprehensive approach designed to assist each family member with the constellation of issues that they face both legal and non-legal, is necessary to best represent the interests of the family as a whole.
