If you’ve been in an airplane accident, whether it’s as small as having damage to your baggage or as disastrous as, God forbid, losing a loved one, the first and most important thing is to take care of your own personal needs. But something to keep in mind is that there are various deadlines that can be imposed on you by the ticket that you purchased, the fine print on the back of it, by treaties that make governing your particular claim and if these deadlines pass, you may lose your ability to assert certain your rights whether it’s just as simple as the right to recover damages for baggage that was lost or stolen during a flight or whether it’s for something much more serious. So, number one priority after an accident is taken care of your personal needs and your family’s needs. But keep in mind you do need to consult with skilled counsel, with experienced counsel in these areas pretty quickly to make sure that the various deadlines don’t sneak up on you.
