/ Videos/ Which State Laws Apply to Aviation Cases?
When an airplane crashes, sometimes there are questions about which state’s laws are going to apply to the case. This is not an easy question to answer. Sometimes, there are many, many factors that play into exactly which state’s law would apply to a particular aviation crash.
As an attorney, it’s our job to help a client by finding the law that would help them the most with their case. To do this, we look at different factors. For example, where the airplane crashed. Sometimes, factors such as if there’s a manufacturing defect, where was the manufacturer located that actually manufactured that was defective.
There can also be issues with where the passengers were located, where they were domiciled, where they lived.
All of these different factors can play into finding which state’s law will apply to an aviation crash.
