SMALLER, LESS SERIOUS ACCIDENTS INVOLVING PRIVATE AIRCRAFT OCCUR MORE FREQUENTLY THAN PEOPLE REALIZE BECAUSE MANY OF THESE INCIDENTS ARE UNREPORTED.

If you have lost a loved one in a plane crash, or if you are a plane crash survivor, you will probably be contacted shortly after the accident by someone from the airlines' insurance company. He or she will make you a settlement offer and ask you to sign a document. Do not sign any paperwork. You could be signing away your rights for filing a future claim against the airline insurer, the airline, the plane manufacturer, or the company responsible for maintaining the airplane.
