Who is Involved in an Aviation Accident Investigation?
The National Transportation Safety Board or NTSB is the agency of the federal government primarily responsible for the investigation of commercial aircraft accidents in the United States. Indeed, the NTSB has been charged with investigation aviation accidents since the early days of human flight, the agency having been created in 1926.
As an aside, the NTSB also investigates other types of accidents in certain situations, including:
- Highway accidents
- Ship and marine accidents
- Pipeline accidents
- Railroad accidents
The circumstances surrounding an aviation accident may warrant the involvement of other agencies with investigatory powers. These include:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI
- State law enforcement agencies
- Local law enforcement agencies
The reports prepared by the NTSB and other agencies can be used as evidence in an aviation accident claim. With that said, these types of reports may not prove to be enough to obtain appropriate compensation in an aviation accident personal injury or wrongful death case.
The final report of the NTSB may not be available for some time. This represents another reason why victims if aviation accidents cannot effectively rely on this type of report to make their case for much-needed compensation.

We are a nationwide law firm. As a result, the team of aviation accident lawyers at our firm have access to resources and experts that are not likely available to other personal injury attorneys.

In addition, these professionals and resources can delineate how and why an accident occurred in the first instance.
Although governmental agencies become immediately involved in the investigation of an aviation accident, the aim of these investigators is not to build a case for those who are injured or killed.
