What are the different types of Aviation Accidents?

The most common causes of aviation accidents include:

  • Pilot error
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Equipment failure
  • Structural or design problems
  • Violation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations
  • Negligence of Flight Service Station employees
  • Negligence of Federal Air Traffic Controllers
  • Negligence in a third party’s selection of a carrier
  • Failure to maintain or repair the aircraft or its components
  • Failure to fuel the aircraft

What to do After an Aviation Accident

It is imperative that you contact a law firm with experience in the representation of plaintiffs in aviation lawsuits immediately following the accident. An aviation attorney or aviation lawyer can assist you in understanding the intricacies of filing a lawsuit.

Do Not Sign Any Paperwork

If you or a loved one have been involved in a commercial aviation accident, you will most likely be contacted by a representative from the airline involved in the accident. The representative from the airline may be a defense attorney or somebody from an insurance company that is contacting you to offer a generous settlement.

Please be advised, the airlines and their representatives do not have you or your families best interest in mind when contacting you. Often is the case that the settlement offer is well below what could be expected if the case went to court. It is absolutely vital that you do not sign any document or accept any settlement offer without first seeking the advice of a qualified aviation law firm.
