If you or a loved one has been the victim in a plane crash, you should seek legal free advice today. While plane crashes are much less common than any other type of accident, they are often the most fatal. Each year approximately 4 billion passengers fly to various locations around the globe with roughly 300 of those passengers sadly not making it to their final destination. Aviation accidents occur all over the United States for several different reasons. The most common aviation accidents are due to pilot error, faulty equipment, and bad weather conditions. While most personal injury cases can be handled independently, aviation accidents are much more complicated and include many complex factors.

Airlines Can Be Negligent Leading to Accidents
While most airlines take various safety precautions and require daily maintenance checks before every flight, sadly other airlines would rather save money and hope that no mechanical errors occur while you’re in flight.

No passenger should ever have to worry about whether or not the flight they have boarded is safe and up to code.
Within the past 3 years the Federal Aviation Administration has sued Southwest Airlines two times for safety related issues. While you would think after the first time this would be fixed, that is not the case. Sadly Southwest would rather save money in maintenance fees than worry about the safety of their passengers. This type of blatant negligence is the reason why our attorneys endlessly fight on our client’s behalf. One of the main reasons our firm started in the personal injury business is to help seek justice for our innocent clients who have been taken advantage of by negligent corporations.
Faulty Equipment Causing Airlines Accidents
In addition to airline negligence, another main reason for aviation accidents is faulty equipment. While faulty equipment is nearly impossible to detect until a major issue arises, manufactures can be held responsible in the case of an aviation accident causing serious injuries or death. The plane’s manufacturers are responsible for thoroughly testing their equipment and making sure the equipment provided is up to code. While faulty equipment is hard to prove, it is not impossible.
Pilot Error Causing Airplane Crashes
Another common cause of aviation accidents is pilot error. In fact, nearly half of all plane crashes are due to errors made by the pilot. Each flight pilots can encounter a number of different issues including navigating through bad weather, losing cabin pressure, engine failure and many other serious issues. If you have been involved in an aviation accident that occurred due to the negligence of the pilot, you should speak with an expert aviation accident attorney today.
