What Are Some Common Causes of Aviation Accidents?
Aviation accidents can occur due to a multitude of factors, often interrelated. Common causes of aviation accidents include:
- Mechanical failures, where issues with aircraft components can lead to catastrophic injuries.
- Pilot error, due to factors like fatigue or misjudgment, also plays a role in many accidents.
- Air traffic control mistakes
- Poor maintenance of aircraft
Design flaws in the aircraft itself (like the recent cases involving the Boeing 737 MAX jets)
Common Grounds for Filing an Aviation Accident Claim
Filing an aviation accident claim typically involves proving negligence or a breach of duty. In some cases, proving negligence may not be necessary as long as you can establish that your injuries are directly related to the aviation industry. This can be on the part of the airline, manufacturers, maintenance providers, or even the crew.
How Liability in Aviation Accidents Is Determined
Determining liability in aviation accidents involves a complex investigation into what really caused the accident. That’s why you need an injury firm with access to powerful legal resources like Morgan and Morgan to handle such a case on your behalf.
It often requires analyzing flight data, maintenance records, and airline crew’s actions. That said, liability can fall on various parties, including but not limited to:
- the airline;
- aircraft manufacturer;
- maintenance providers; or even
- government entities responsible for air traffic control.
Damages Available to Victims of Aviation Accidents
You or a loved one may be able to pursue various types of damages after an aviation accident. These include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In fatal accidents, families can seek damages for wrongful death, which covers loss of companionship, future earnings, and funeral expenses. Punitive damages may also be awarded in cases of gross negligence or willful misconduct by someone or an entity in the aviation industry.
