Causes of Aircraft Accidents, Injuries and Wrongful Death

Back in 2016 in the United States, there were over 1300 aviation injurys. The vast majority of these injurys were general aviation and only 39 of them were commercial aviation.

Our aircraft injury attorneys want to fight tooth and nail against the insurance company that represents the liable party to ensure the results are favorable. We will prove to a judge and jury that the liable party caused your client to lose a loved one or became severely injured and that, had they acted differently, this whole situation could have been avoided.

The following are common reasons why aviation injurys occur:

  1. An error of the pilot. People make mistakes every single day and pilots are not immune to error. There can be mistakes made with taking off and landing, speeding far too much to be landing safely, not refueling properly, making an error in navigation, and generally miscalculating.
  2. A malfunction with the equipment. This is usually not the fault of anyone who is operating the aircraft, as a malfunction is more of a design flaw. If the manufacturer had a defect that they failed to correct, then they could be liable for all of the harm that follows.
  3. Having bad weather. Sometimes an unexpected storm blows through and will shake things up a little bit in the cargo; a pilot intentionally going out without checking the weather or following proper procedures during a storm could be liable for harm and death that they cause.
  4. Sabotage. This is a far less common cause of aviation injuries and deaths but, as you likely know, it has happened before. Sabotage would include something like terrorist activity with the intent to harm.

Why You Should Hire a Attorney

Aviation injurys are very complicated legally. Finding out who the liable party is and dealing with the insurance companies of potentially multi-million-dollar companies can be challenging for some of the best personal injury attorneys. Trying to go on your own to get the justice you deserve against something so complex and powerful is unrealistic.

It is our job to investigate the case thoroughly, identify the liable party, and negotiate a settlement with the insurance company representing the liable party. We prepare your case for trial so that, if a settlement is not reached, we are ready for anything. Don’t make it harder on yourself by trying to do this alone. Give us a call and we would be more than happy to set you up with a free consultation.
