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. The lawyers at Ferguson & Paisley have the knowledge that
