ATTORNEY: Generally speaking, when there is an aviation crash, the overwhelming likelihood is that there was negligence by the airline. The airlines are required to maintain a very high level of care for the safety of their passengers.

It's very important that a family who has suffered this kind of traumatic event, some family member or group of family members, sometimes, may be killed in aviation crash. There's so much confusion, there's so much emotional trauma that is associated with that. It's very important that they retain a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, who has done these major aviation cases.

Early in the process, we can help them with a variety of issues. These events are so traumatic that they may be in a fog; they can't cope with what's going on around them. We can help, we've been through it, we know how to take them through the process.

The other part of it is that, sometimes, they may be contacted by the airline, somewhat in the guise of trying to help them and counsel them, when what they're really doing is trying to take statements, develop evidence that they're going to use to defend the lawsuits that they know are coming against them.

So, it's good to have the advice of an attorney, experienced in this field, right at the very beginning, so that they don't fall into these problems and areas that can affect families that have suffered these terrible, terrible losses.
