When a major airline crash occurs the NTSB assembles a “Go Team” to investigate the crash, make a factual report and determine a probable cause. The entire invstigation can take over a year to complete. The investigation group is divided into various committees, composed of NTSB personnel, airline representatives, pilot group representatives, air traffic control union representatives, airplane and engine manufacturer representatives. Those committees commonly include groups studying the areas of Operations, Structures, Powerplants, Systems, Air Traffic Control, Weather, Human Performance and Survival Factors.
When a plane crash occurs the air carriers, pilots unions, air traffic controllers associations, airplane and engine manufacturers all will be present and be part of the NTSB team investigating the crash. Their lawyers will be standing right behind them, privy to the investigation and its details. The passengers and their family members remain the only people who cannot participate in the accident investigation or who cannot appoint a representative. They have no say, no knowledge of the facts and the developing evidence regarding their loved ones killed in the airplane crash.
It is important that you have voice and a strong representative in this process. Without proper legal representation, you may never find the true reasons for the tragic plane crash. In many air carrier cases today, the cause of the airplane accident is due to structural failure caused by metal fatigue or shoddy repairs, improperly repaired or installed parts, pilot error, in-flight fires, mid-air collisions, FAA or private air traffic controller negligence, and landing or takeoff accidents. While the NTSB begins their investigation, our experts and investigators will commence their search for the responsible parties.
