What’s the problem?
According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), air travel is expected to double over the next 20 years. Air traffic will increase, along with the risk of an aviation accident. Generally, travel by air is considered to be a safe means of transportation, but when accidents do occur they often result in absolute fatalities. Smaller, less serious accidents involving private aircraft are more frequent than in large passenger liners. Most of these airline incidents go unreported.
Causes of Aviation Accidents
Flying is still one of the safest forms of travel, though unfortunately accidents do happen. Most airline accidents occur because of:
- Pilot error
- Bad weather
- Poor maintenance
- Faulty parts
- Air controller error
Potentially liable (e.g., legally responsible) and negligent parties vary depending on the cause of the aircraft accident. The owner and operator of the aircraft certainly may be liable; manufacturers or maintenance suppliers may be liable in certain circumstances; even the federal government can have some responsibility in an aircraft accident or aircraft collision.
