Individuals who survived an aviation accident can recover damages for their physical bodily injury, pain and suffering, loss of wages and medical bills, both past and future. In the event of a death, the relatives can recover damages for funeral expenses, the loss of support and others. For aviation accidents, punitive damages are barred under the Warsaw Convention. In most aviation accidents the responsible parties can include the pilot, the owner, the insurer, the manufacturer, the airline or air traffic controllers.
