Airline-related accidents can occur on board a plane or while onboarding or off boarding the aircraft. They can occur while traveling locally in the US or during the course of an international flight. In the case of international travel, jurisdiction for liability purposes is established under the protocols of the Montreal Accord, which defines the extent to which an airline may be held liable and how remedies may be pursued. In the case domestic travel within the US, federal aviation rules, and various state laws regarding negligent conduct and product liability will be brought into play.
Actionable incidents are not limited to plane crashes per se. As a “common carrier”, the airline is charged with the responsibility to utilize the most extreme measures of care on behalf of your safety. The margin for error here is very thin and any compromise of care is considered negligent. Luggage falling from overhead storage compartments, hot coffee spilled on passengers, and even unruly passengers who are not adequately restrained in their behavior can lend themselves to legal. In this age of terror threats at airports the venue for liability now extends even to the airport waiting rooms, lounges and corridors. Contract maintenance facilities, manufacturers of defective parts utilized in the airplane and an entire cross section of actors in the manufacturing and operational process of the aircraft may also have liability in the accident.
