Potential Causes of Aviation Accidents

From commercial airliners to corporate jets to military aircraft, aviation accidents can occur in a myriad of ways on board any type of aircraft. 

Factors that could lead to an aviation accident include:

  • Air traffic controller error
  • Engine failure
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Fuel loss
  • Ground or in air collisions with other aircraft 
  • Hijacking/sabotage 
  • Lack of maintenance 
  • Pilot error
  • Pilot incapacitation 
  • Weather conditions
  • Wildlife (such as a flock of birds striking the plane) 

In the event you or your loved one’s accident was caused by human error, you may be able to file a claim against the at fault party—the pilot, airline company, or other entity—for damages. These damages may include compensation for your accident-related medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses you suffered. 

What to Do After an Aviation Accident

After an aviation accident of any kind, your priority should always be your own personal health and safety. If you’ve ever sat through a preflight safety demonstration, you know that it is recommended to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. Remember that advice goes for any emergency situation—always secure your own safety first so you can navigate the situation better and assist others if needed. 

After an aviation accident, don’t delay in seeking medical attention for your injuries. Head to a hospital or clinic for a full checkup even if your injuries don’t appear serious. You may have internal injuries such as a concussion you can remain unaware of without the proper care. 

Once you’ve received the medical treatment you need, it is then time to determine how you would like to proceed moving forward. Are you going to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries? If you were in a crash involving other passengers, can you work together to sue the at fault party? Consulting with an experienced aviation lawyer in your area can help you determine your next steps. 

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

Bringing a lawsuit against a private pilot, a commercial airline, an aircraft manufacturer, and/or another party after an airplane accident is no simple feat. Depending on who is responsible for your injuries, you may be going up against a major commercial airliner or a big-name manufacturer which can be intimidating. Fortunately, the process is far more feasible with a team of knowledgeable aviation accident attorneys on your team who understand how to fight back against even the toughest of opponents. 

By teaming up with a law firm that possesses the experience and resources necessary to investigate an aviation accident, determine what caused the crash, and hold the responsible party or parties accountable for the injuries and deaths of innocent passengers, you can set yourself up for success. We will do whatever it takes to hold the at fault party responsible and help you make your best possible recovery.
