How Can an Aviation Accident Attorney Help Me?

Discover what New York airline accident Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC can do for you

Many people believe they can handle an airline accident claim on their own. They trust that airlines will negotiate fairly with them and compensate them for their injuries or for the loss of a loved one due to an airline accident in the United States or overseas.

Don’t be so sure. In most cases, most airlines and their insurance companies focus on the bottom line. That means these large corporations do everything they can to keep payments to a minimum. That’s why it’s critical you hire an experienced airline accident attorney right away.

At Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC, our dedicated New York airline accident lawyers fight to protect the rights of victims of airline accidents in the United States and other countries. We have a strong track record of success, and we’re eager to help.

Some of the verdicts and settlements our attorneys helped secure for airline accident victims and their families include:

  • $32 million for relatives of victims of American Airlines Flight 587 Belle Harbor, NY *
  • $5 million for relatives of victims of Swissair Flight 111 Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia *
  • $3.6 million for landmark case involving relatives of victim of Egyptair Flight 990 *
  • $2 million for relatives of victim of defective handrail on airplane stairs *

Attorney Reiter also represented some of the families of victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. *

Do aviation accident attorneys investigate airline accidents?

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigates all airline accidents in the United States and many overseas airline accidents. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also sometimes investigates aviation accidents, particularly when accidents involve violations of FAA regulations.

In either case, it’s important to have someone investigating your airline accident and looking out for your personal interests. That’s why people around the world hire us to handle their aviation accident claim. Our experienced airline accident attorneys understand aviation accidents and have a comprehensive understanding of aviation law in the United States and around the world.

Do American aviation accident attorneys handle international airline accidents?
