FAQ: Imagine I’m in a plane crash that takes off from one state, is scheduled to land in another, but instead crashes in a third. In which state would my lawsuit be filed?

It depends. Legally you can choose the venue you file a lawsuit in, which could include the origin or where the flight took off, the specific place where the incident occurred, the airlines headquarters, or potentially in federal court. An experienced attorney can investigate what venue is most advantageous and file your lawsuit in the venue with the highest probability of success.
