How do you secure the evidence in an aviation disaster case? Well, in commercial aviation cases, an entity like the NTSB (the National Transportation Safety Board) is going to be responsible for the initial investigation to determine the causes of the accident. In foreign countries, as well, there’s often an equivalent of the NTSB and often in foreign cases, the NTSB will participate even if the accident didn’t take place in the United States.

If it was a U.S. airline, or U.S. manufacturer, like Boeing or McDonnell Douglas, our NTSB in the United States will take part of these foreign accidents. In those cases, these investigative agencies are going to be securing the evidence themselves. For more information, you can give us a call at 305-476-7400 or visit our website:
