Aviation law is an incredibly complex practice area with very specific state and federal regulations governing what happens in the aftermath of these incidents. A skilled Phoenix aviation accident lawyer can use their resources to handle every aspect of these claims.
An attorney will first get to know how the accident impacted an injury victim. They will work with trusted medical and economic experts to properly calculate an aviation accident victim’s total expected losses.
An attorney will then use their extensive resources to conduct a complete investigation into the incident. This will include working with both state and federal regulators as they determine the cause of the crash and who may be liable.
