Texas personal injury attorney George Fleming walks you through how an attorney evaluates an aviation accident case, which is where someone was injured in an airplane.
Like all accident cases, the lawsuit starts with research and investigation. After an airplane crash or accident, there are three reports that come as a result and they are a huge element for the case.
The first report is a preliminary. This is simply a quick overview very soon after the accident with the information that is already known like date and time of the accident, location, number of people aboard, and registration number of the craft. The factual report comes next and it is developed by the several agencies, National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration. This involves information about all the instruments and equipment on the plane. Were they working? Did the flight data recorder have any information that would help determine the cause of the crash? What do the air traffic control tapes say? And the final report is regarding probable cause. This document gives 3 or 3 possible reasons why the plane wrecked and the findings of the two agencies involved. Watch the video to learn more.
