Your Rights

After an aviation accident, it is common for insurance companies to contact victims in order to convince them to sign legal documents. These papers protect the airline from liability, leaving the victims with no compensation. Unfortunately, many people to do know their rights following an accident so they sign on the dotted line. If you are a victim, you may be able to collect damages for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and disability.
