Aviation Negligence Accidents

When aviation accidents occur, they usually result in very serious injuries or fatalities. Whether you travel in a large commuter plane or a small private aircraft, as aviation and air traffic continue to increase, so too does the risk that serious accidents can occur. Often, these accidents are the result of negligence or improper precautions from any of a number of sources. Aviation accident law can pertain to any aircraft, whether it is commercial or private.

Causes of Aviation Accidents

Several factors could point to negligence on the part of a pilot, aircraft, commercial airline, repair crew, designer or manufacturer of an aircraft, or even the federal government.

These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Defects in manufacturing
  • Improper maintenance of the aircraft
  • Equipment failure
  • Pilot error, carelessness, or recklessness
  • Violation of safety standards set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration
  • Negligence of employees or air traffic controllers

Pursuing Personal Injury Claims for Aviation Accidents

Aviation litigation can be rather complex because there are several different entities under state, federal, or international law that could potentially be held liable for a claim. Proving that an accident was the result of negligence (meaning that there was a failure to provide reasonable precautions to keep passengers safe from potential harm), product liability (meaning that a defective product may have contributed to an accident), or failing to meet an industry standard is a job for an experienced personal injury attorney.
