Airplane Accident Attorneys

Injuries that result from airplane accidents are somewhat different, from a legal standpoint, than those that result from car accidents. This is because commercial airlines are held to higher standards of overall safety than are private vehicles. Much like buses and trains, commercial airplanes (not private jets) are considered “common carriers.” As such, they must exercise even greater care with regards to maintenance, training, and ensuring the safety and rights of their passengers.

In the event of an airplane accident such as a crash, emergency landing, or faulty landing, it must first be determined why the accident occurred. This often requires extensive examination of the wreckage by professional investigators. In many cases, essential evidence as to what caused the crash is destroyed in the crash itself, making it difficult to prove something such as pilot error or mechanical failure.

In addition to poor piloting or mechanics, a deadly airplane accident may also be caused by the airline’s decision to fly in poor weather, or by a flaw in the aircraft’s design. Though airplane accidents do not occur frequently, they can be devastating when they do.
