What Are Some Common Causes of Aviation Accidents?
Aviation accidents happen due to various reasons. Let's take a look at the most common:
- Mechanical failures
- Pilot error
- Bad weather conditions
- Air traffic control errors
- Technological malfunctions
Keep in mind that aviation accidents don't necessarily have to involve crashes. For perspective, you might be able to bring a valid claim on the following grounds:
- Injuries due to severe turbulence
- Slip and fall accidents
- Ground service accidents
- Exposure to hazardous materials
- Improper pressurization, causing health issues like hypoxia
- Food and beverage-related incidents, including scalds from hot drinks or food poisoning
Each of these scenarios requires specific attention and expertise, which is why hiring a Birmingham aviation attorney from a powerful and nationwide injury firm like Morgan and Morgan is important.
Understanding Your Rights After an Aviation Accident
Passengers, crew members, and even people on the ground affected by an aviation accident have the right to seek compensation if negligence or a breach of duty is involved. This includes the right to pursue claims for personal injury or wrongful death. Aviation workers injured on the job have rights under workers' compensation and possibly additional legal claims against the at-fault party.
