You Can Take Legal Action Against the Party Responsible for Your Aviation Accident

In the world we live in now, traveling by air is as common as taking the bus. When you want to travel a long distance in the shortest time possible or when traveling internationally, intercontinental, or for other purposes, air travel is the primary mode of transportation.

Air travel is undeniably the safest way to travel because of the rigorous rules in the aviation industry. Aviation authorities enforce strict standards for every aircraft, including design, operation, and maintenance, so it becomes a topic of great concern when an aviation accident occurs.

Although they are not very common, when they do happen, aviation accidents tend to involve more people and cause more life-changing injuries and fatalities, and these can result in tragic consequences. These accidents can cause wrongful deaths that can induce emotional, physical, and financial distress. As a victim of an aviation accident, you should fight back.

When you want to file a lawsuit or claim, it is best to do so with an aviation accident lawyer. Aviation accident lawyers specialize in cases involving aircraft crashes, injuries, or wrongful deaths.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

Aviation safety is a complex subject, with accidents occurring for various reasons, ranging from human error to technical malfunctions and environmental factors. The following are some of the most common causes of aviation crashes:

Pilot Error

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, pilot error accounts for about sixty to eighty percent of aviation accidents. Even though pilots, like every other aviation personnel, are usually subject to stringent regulations regarding essential factors involved in flying, there are still pilot errors that cause aviation accidents. Some of them are:

  • Excessive landing speed
  • Missed runways
  • Premature descents
  • Poor take-off or landing
  • Miscalculations
  • Navigational mistakes.

Mechanical Failure

Airplanes and other aircraft are complicated machines with many parts, and if any of these components have a problem, it could threaten how the aircraft works. The functionality of any aircraft can be jeopardized due to lack of maintenance or other flaws like wing problems, structural design flaws, or engine failure.

Environmental Factors

Weather conditions like precipitation can affect the visibility and ability to land safely. Pilots should follow established procedures concerning weather conditions, like checking the weather before flying, and they should be able to adapt to sudden environmental changes.

Other causes include ground crew errors, carrier negligence, fire during flight, runway obstructions, improper cargo loading, and intentional sabotage.

Who To Hold Responsible for Aviation Accidents?

Aviation accidents vary, and a different factor can cause each accident; determining who is responsible for an aviation crash can be difficult, but when you work with our attorneys, they can help you conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your aviation accident and who to hold responsible for it.

The following are some of the parties who may be held accountable for an accident:

  • Designer of the aircraft: If the plane’s design makes it more probable to crash, the designer can be held responsible.
  • Manufacturer of aircraft parts: When a part of the aircraft has a flaw, the manufacturers can be held liable.
  • Mechanic: Maintenance issues or failures can be a fault of the mechanic or maintenance provider.
  • Airport: The airport can be liable for accidents caused by the negligent actions of its employees. If air traffic controllers give wrong directives, fuel handlers don’t refuel before a flight, or pilots make mistakes, the airport will be held responsible.

If you have suffered losses due to an aviation accident, you deserve compensation, so don’t sleep on your rights. Call us at (214) 522-9404 to learn how we can help you.
