Airplane Injury Lawsuits
Statistically, flying is much safer than driving. Air travel can reduce travel time and offers convenience. However, when an airplane crash occurs, the results can be tragic, killing hundreds of innocent passengers, and giving rise to a wrongful death claim. The reality is that pilot error is the most common cause to blame. The Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. represents the victims of an airline accident caused by the negligence of another. In the event of a death, we also represent the families of loved ones in a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the loved one who died in the plane crash. Give us a call today for a free consultation.
Airplane Accident Causes
Airplane crashes are usually traumatic events with very few, if any, survivors. Determining the cause of an aviation accident is extremely difficult and can take several months, sometimes years. Generally, after an investigation of the accident concludes, many personal injury lawsuits follow.
The most common causes of aviation accidents include:
- poor design of the aircraft or its parts
- pilot error or negligence
- faulty or defective parts or equipment
- faulty airplane design or structure
- negligence of the air traffic controller
- negligent selection of a third party carrier
- engine failure
- weather, and even
- careless passenger screening
