What Happens After a Plane Crash?

Several agencies work together to investigate commercial and private plane accidents. These agencies conduct interviews with instructors and witnesses, and experts analyze factors such as the following:

  • The crash scene and debris
  • Aircraft maintenance and component reports
  • Weather reports
  • Pilot qualifications and accident history
  • FAA and NTSB records
  • Air traffic control records
  • And more.

Once the teams analyze all factors, they’ll release the cause.

The families of plane crash victims face numerous challenges in the days, weeks, months, and years following the accident. Although you want answers, you must wait for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other agencies to complete their lengthy investigations.

Plane Crash Frequently Asked Questions

You may receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages depending on the circumstances. Speak with your personal injury lawyer as soon as possible about compensation for damages.

Federal laws governing commercial aircraft, pilots, and crews prohibit personal electronic device usage during takeoff, landing, and flying below 10,000 feet. However, these laws don’t apply to private plane pilots. Although the law doesn’t explicitly ban private pilots from using smartphones, it prohibits careless or reckless behaviors (like taking selfies) during flights.

Discuss the situation with your Colorado Springs, CO, plane crash attorney before signing any papers or accepting money from an airline or insurance company. They only have their best interests in mind and won’t necessarily offer fair compensation. Your lawyer will help recover the compensation you deserve.
