Airplane Crashes
personal injury lawyers

Airplane crashes can result from many different factors or a combination of factors. Aviation and tort law exist to protect people who have died or were injured as a result of negligence due to humans or mechanical error. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was established from the Federal Aviation Act, passed in 1958. The administration sets minimum safety standards for flight operations, aircraft manufacture, and pilot conduct. In the event FAA regulations are violated, an accident can occur that endangers the safety of everybody using air travel.

While air travel is generally safe, there are a number of hazards facing all of us when we board an airplane and put our lives in the hands of the pilot. From fire, to equipment failure, to acts of terrorism, air travel can be fraught with danger. Pilots flying a plane are responsible to transport the people on the aircraft safely to the destination location by following certain rules. The failure to do so properly can result in an instance of absolute fatality. In addition, when a plane has faulty or poorly maintained equipment, it can result in the plane crashing.

According to the FAA, 2002 was the safest year since 1946 for airplane travel. There were no fatalities in the United States aboard a major airliner and only one accident the National Transportation Safety Board considered "serious." There were 300 fatal accidents involving small planes and charter aircraft. When a plane accident has occurred, it has usually been caused by some type of negligence that requires a lawyer in order to recover compensation for those injured or for the families of the surviving victim.
