Being involved in an airplane accident can cause you serious and grave injury. Help from an experienced law firm can be crucial for the road to recovery.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

There are a variety of reasons that plane crashes happen. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • Pilot error: Pilots can make a mistake that can cause a plane to crash and cause you injury. These errors happen while in flight or when taxiing on a runway. A myriad of people are responsible for keeping an airplane safe. These maintenance, fueling and loading personnel can also make errors that can cause you to suffer an injury in an aviation accident.
  • Mechanical failure: There are times when the plane you are riding is unsafe or poorly maintained. There may be a mechanical failure that leads to an aviation accident. These failures can cause injury to you and the other passengers. These failures include structural or design anomalies or improper aircraft maintenance and repairs; all of which may contribute to an aviation accident.
  • Weather conditions: The weather has a lot to do with whether you are safe when flying. When an aircraft encounters poor weather, you rely on the flight team to get you to your destination safely. Inclement weather can cause mechanical failures or human errors that lead to an aviation accident. These plane crashes can cause devastating injuries and loss of life.
  • Sabotage: In rare instances, someone sabotages an aircraft. Hijackers, terrorists and acts of war bring down airplanes. These events can cause mechanical failures and pilot errors that lead to injuries and deaths.

Proving Negligence in an Aviation Accident

Every aviation accident is investigated by the National Transport Safety Board (NTSB). The NTSB uncovers the cause of the crash and who might be responsible for the event. While these findings may be important in your aviation accident, they may not be permitted in court cases.

A lawyer from KM may be able to prove negligence in an aviation accident. The attorneys at KM will build a case against an airline and pursue compensation for their client’s injuries. They will work to show pilot error, mechanical failure, poor weather conditions or sabotage were to blame in the aviation accident.

The personal injury attorneys at KM will use investigative tools to uncover the reason for an aviation accident and work to prove to the court that negligence was at play.
