  • Understanding the Complexity of a Plane Crash in Florida

    The Tampa Bay area is a hub for local, international, and military aviation traffic in Florida and the Southeastern United States. While a tragic airplane accident brings to mind large commercial carriers, general aviation (GA) accidents involve turbojets, rotorcraft, gliders, and other craft.

    With the volume of air traffic in the Tampa Bay area, plane accidents are common. After an accident, cause is important to determine. According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), approximately 47 percent of fatal general aviation accidents in the U.S. between 2008 and 2014 involved loss of control by pilots.

    The National Aviation Administration (FAA) notes that other leading causes of accidents in general aviation include:

    • Flight into terrain: Lack of clear visuals, rugged landscape, lack of preflight planning
    • Component failure: Loss of power or piloting capability due to inadequate maintenance, preparation, or design
    • Fuel and mechanical: Low quality or lack of fuel, mechanical or electrical failure, poor planning
    • Low altitude: Distraction, lack of situational awareness, outdated technology or resources
    • Mid-air collisions: Distraction, controller error, inexperienced pilot
    • Unknown variables: Pilot error or training, spatial disorientation, instrument approach, poor planning, pilot impatience

    Like other areas of personal injury, such as harm caused by watercraft, or defective products, many aviation accidents are a result of a combination of errors.

  • We Put Our Experience With Florida Aviation Law to Work For You

    Because several factors can contribute to a plane crash, multiple parties are immediately involved when an aviation accident occurs. When you contact our attorneys in Tampa, we immediately investigate your case to preserve evidence, contact witnesses, and engage with all parties, who may include:

    • State and federal aviation agencies like the NTSB, the FAA, and other legal and regulatory agencies
    • Airport and airstrip operators, airplane owners
    • Common carriers like commercial airlines
    • Maintenance and flight crews
    • Weather, environmental, and other experts

    Rapid response is essential when you, or a family member, suffer personal injury in an airplane accident.
