Is the airline liable if I am injured on board?

If you suffered injury in an aviation accident of any level of severity, you may have the right to take action against those responsible. In the case of commercial flights on airlines, responsible parties for your injury could include the airline, manufacturer of the airplane, and air traffic controllers, or the airplane crew.

What is the 'statute of repose' in an aviation accident case?
