Causes of Commercial Plane Accidents
There are several factors that can cause an airplane crash, including:
- Flight crew mistakes
- Aircraft problems
- Severe weather conditions
- Maintenance and repair failures
- Airport/air traffic control mistakes
Whatever the cause of the accident, however, if you are injured or a loved one is injured or killed in a plane crash, you should seek the advice of a commercial plane crash lawyer.
In some cases, the cause seems obvious, like harsh weather conditions. But, during an investigation, an experienced aviation lawyer may find other causes such as the pilot deciding to fly into severe weather even though he or she was aware of the risks. In this case, the pilot might be considered liable for the accident and may be responsible to compensate the people that were injured.
A number of people can be held liable for commercial plane accidents, including the pilot and crew, the airline, the airport facility, the design and manufacturer of the airplane, the air traffic controllers, and the maintenance workers. At times, more than one party may be held accountable.
Airline Accident Settlement Information
Federal law prohibits attorneys from soliciting business from families of victims of plane crashes until 45 days after the accident. But if someone you love has died or has been injured in a plane crash or you, yourself, have been injured, you can contact a commercial plane crash lawyer as soon as you like.
Millions of dollars are often paid to settle wrongful-death or negligence lawsuits involving commercial airplane crashes. To find out if you qualify to seek compensation for your injury and/or loss, please contact us today.
