What Legal Actions Can You Take if You Sustain Injuries from A Plane Crashing Nearby?

Normally, airlines provide compensation for injuries sustained by their passengers – but what if you were injured not as a passenger, but as a passerby when their plane crashes? In this case, you can still file a personal injury claim against the party who owns the flight – which can range from a government agency (like the case above), a company, or even an individual (in small aircraft cases). The type and process of personal injury claims will differ depending on the party you are suing.
