Military Plane Accidents
Military aircraft accidents are governed by a different set of rules than commercial and general aviation. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has jurisdiction over civil air crashes and, typically, a Military Safety Mishap Board has jurisdiction over military air crashes. Additionally, certain military aircraft cases are barred under the FERES Doctrine. The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the government is immune from suit for injuries to service personnel. In most instances, the only recourse military families have is to evaluate whether private entities caused or contributed to the accident. Representation of victims in military air crashes requires the ultimate in skill, perseverance and funding to achieve a recovery.
