Common Causes of Aviation Accidents
Aviation accidents often occur due to some sort of negligence. Common examples include:
- Pilot error
- Mechanical failures
- Air traffic control miscommunication or coordination lapses
- Maintenance issues
- Design flaws
- Manufacturing defects
Some accidents may occur due to natural factors, such as bad weather. Even so, there have been cases where air traffic control officials failed to warn pilots well in advance about bad weather, allowing flights to take off when they shouldn’t have in the first place. That still boils down to negligence, a common reason for filing an aviation claim.
Can I Sue an International Aircraft if the Accident Happened in the United States?
Yes, you can. International airlines operating in the U.S. are subject to American jurisdiction for incidents that happen within U.S. territory. The legal process may involve complex international aviation laws, including treaties like the Montreal Convention, which governs international air travel.
That said, it all boils down to the specific circumstances of the accident and the airline's operation, which is why you should have your case reviewed by an aviation accident expert from our team.
Your Rights as an Aviation Accident Victim
You do have rights as an aviation accident victim, and it’s our job to ensure these rights are not only respected but also protected. For perspective, you have the right to:
- a thorough investigation of the accident to determine the cause and responsible parties;
