Air travel is one of the safest modes of transportation. However, because of the very nature of flight, negligent operation or maintenance of an aircraft can lead to severe injury and death.
In the majority of cases, airplane accidents occur due to the following reasons:
- Negligence: When an individual or entity, such as the pilot, flight staff, mechanic, or manufacturer makes a negligent error that resulted in an accident. Errors can include communication errors and improper equipment maintenance.
- Product Liability: When a defect in the design or construction of a product results in failure, and subsequently results in injury.
- Wrongful Death: If a friend, family member or loved one has been killed in an airplane accident due to a negligent party.
Aviation accident claims may involve the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and/or the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and can fall under federal jurisdiction depending on the nature of the accident.
Aviation accident law covers any accident involving an aircraft that results in injury or wrongful death, whether commercial or privately-owned. This includes the following forms of aircraft travel:
- Passenger jets
- Private planes
- Aircraft operated by tour companies
- Hang gliders
- Hot air balloons
