The summer months are incredibly busy for airline companies. After all, summer break is the best time to plan exciting vacations with the entire family. While air travel is renowned as the safest means of transportation in the world, it’s not without its dangers. Just last March, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was forced to ground the Boeing 737 MAX after a data processing issue was responsible for two fatal crashes.

If you’re injured in an airplane accident, you may be able to recover damages by filing a personal injury claim. It’s important to note that if you were flying internationally, your right to compensation may fall under the Montreal Convention. This two-tier liability system guarantees that injured airline passengers can receive compensation up to 113,100 SDR, or $170,000.
