Compensation for the victims of the crash
For families who have lost their loved ones, the whole process associated with the protection of their rights is painful and difficult.
The trial of aviation cases takes place in an environment where families are still acutely experiencing the loss of loved ones. It may take years before family members are strong enough to deal with such issues. Of course, a few months after the sad events, they are unlikely to participate in the trial. Insurance companies know this very well and are circling around families trying to take advantage of it.
This is one of those areas where it is especially important that someone represents the interests of the victims. When you sit at a negotiating table with a pile of papers and sign release documents that mean no further demands, imagine how useful it is to have a strong team on your side.
We know that no matter how high the amount of compensation, it will not help to return loved ones. And, nevertheless, we believe that the families of the deceased deserve the maximum possible payments. In turn, such huge insurance companies (like “Lloyds of London”, “Global Aerospace” or “AIG”) want to get by with the minimum possible compensation. A typical situation for the inevitable legal duel between representatives of insurers and victims.
When addressing an inexperienced lawyer who has never dealt with aviation matters, a number of questions arise and remain with the families of the victims. How to make a claim for compensation? What should be its size? Which position is better to take? And, besides, it is necessary to understand the technical intricacies of aircraft maintenance, structures, piloting, etc.?
Most local lawyers are not experienced in aviation matters. Even if local lawyers are aware that compensation in US courts is significantly higher than in any other country (because US judges are more sympathetic to the victims), do they know how to make sure that this case was considered in USA? Do they have in place a team of experienced professionals who aim to maximize the amount of compensation? Who are they in the field of aviation, random people or experts? How do families of victims know how to behave and what to do? That’s when they turn to us.
The main strategy of families of victims is to contact an experienced lawyer who has experience in representing clients in aviation matters at the international level. If, as a result of the investigation, it turns out the circumstances which could lead to filing of the case in the USA, where you can receive maximum compensation, we will not miss this opportunity. If the case cannot be dealt with in the United States, this is not the end. Our lawyers and the American partner law firm remain to protect the interests of the client, regardless of whether the case goes to court or whether the pre-trial solution of the dispute will be the best choice. We and our partner law firms never abandon a client.
