I want to file a lawsuit and recover compensation, but I’m not sure where I need to file my case.
This is a common question, and one that is difficult to answer. The answer to this question depends on a host of factors, including the location of the airliner’s headquarters, who is determined to be at fault in causing the accident, and whether the plane was on the ground, taxiing, or in flight at the time of the accident. A passenger may have several different jurisdictions in which he or she could file his or her case. Injured passengers should consult with an experienced attorney and explain the specific facts of their cases in order to obtain a more accurate answer.
