Causes of Plane Accidents
For the most part, airplane travel is considered to be one of the safest means of public transportation available. Unfortunately, when a plane accident occurs it usually results in fatalities.
Laws governing plane accidents cover commercial air carriers in addition to general aviation incidents. Commercial air carriers include all of the major airlines used for transportation. General aviation includes non-commercial aircrafts such as:
- Pleasure crafts
- Hang gliders
- Charter flights
- Large business jets
- Small planes
Commercial carriers and general aviation crafts can experience one or more problems which may cause an accident. These problems may include:
- Violation of FAA regulations
- Pilot error
- Faulty equipment
- Third party negligence in selecting a carrier
- Federal Air Traffic controller negligence
- Flight Service Station employee negligence
- Design or structural problems
Air travel is regulated by the FAA and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board.) These organizations also investigate all commercial and private aviation accidents. The FAA is responsible for enforcing regulations and may impose criminal or civil penalties. The FAA also establishes the standards of safety for aircraft manufacturers, pilot conduct and flight operations. The NTSB investigates all civil aircraft accidents and recommends standards of safety in order to prevent future accidents.
Personal Injury Claims
Liability for personal injuries can vary depending on the actual cause of the plane accident. Depending on the circumstances, the owners, operator, manufacturer, maintenance supplier or even the federal government may be held responsible for a plane accident.
Litigation in plane accidents is often very complicated and may involve state, federal and even international laws.
