Aviation accidents can happen for a number of reasons, leading to mass casualties in a commercial airline crash or death and injury from a private plane accident or helicopter crash. Some common causes of aviation accidents include:
- Pilot error
- Design defects
- Maintenance negligence
- Air traffic control negligence
- FAA safety violations
When an aviation accident happens, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the cause of the crash immediately to determine responsibility. Responsible parties may include the pilot, the aircraft owner responsible for maintenance, the aircraft manufacturer for a defective part, or some other party whose negligence contributed to the crash.
If you have been injured or had a loved one killed in an aviation accident, talk with an experienced airplane crash attorney as soon as possible in order to preserve important evidence. Conducting an independent investigation is usually necessary to develop a compelling case for compensation.
