Why Should I Hire A New York Aviation Accident Lawyer For An International Airline Accident?

New York airline accident Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC handles international airline crashes

When an airline accident happens in another country, some families who lost loved ones believe they should hire a lawyer who works in the country where the accident occurred. But in making such an important decision, the location of the attorney matters less than the experience level of the attorney working on your case.

New York City airline accident attorney Jonathan C. Reiter and his colleagues have years of experience handling international airline accidents. During their careers, the attorneys at Reiter’s law firm have worked on cases involving airlines from Switzerland, Egypt and other countries.

In particular, attorney Reiter secured $32 million for relatives of victims of American Airlines Flight 587 Belle Harbor, NY. Attorney Reiter also obtained $5 million for relatives of victims of Swissair Flight 111 Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia and $3.6 million in a landmark case involving relatives of a victim of Egyptair Flight 990. 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. *

Can NYC aviation accident attorneys handle international airline accidents?

As our case results illustrate, our skilled attorneys in New York City routinely handle some of the largest airline accidents around the world. Because many airlines have headquarters in New York and many flights take off or land from here, having a New York City airline accident lawyer often proves extremely advantageous for international airline accidents.

It’s also important to hire an attorney who is well-versed in the international laws governing airline accidents. International airline crashes are governed by the Warsaw and Montreal Conventions and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) agreement that prescribe where the lawsuit can be brought. In general, a lawsuit can be brought in the victim’s home country, the airline’s home country, the destination of the flight or the place where the ticket was purchased.

The attorneys at Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC have a comprehensive understanding of the Warsaw Convention, Montreal Convention and IATA agreement. Allow us to put our knowledge to work for you.

Why should I hire New York airline accident lawyer Jonathan C. Reiter?

Airline crashes usually involve passengers from many different countries or states whose only connection is that they are involved in a common disaster. It is important to retain a knowledgeable and experienced aviation accident attorney to prosecute a case against the airline wherever it is most advantageous to bring the lawsuit.

In many cases, all of the wrongful death cases from an airplane crash are transferred to one jurisdiction for trial to determine the airline’s liability. A New York aviation accident attorney can handle an airliner crash case wherever it occurs in the United States or around the world.
