Aviation Accident Compensation
Even though numerous studies have shown that flying is the safest mode of transportation currently available, it is not without risk. Accidents can happen and when they do, they are often catastrophic.
Airplane accidents are not just restricted to the times when the plane is in the air. They can also occur upon landing or before plane takes off.
Common causes of airplane accidents include:
- adverse runway conditions
- faulty manufacturing of plane components
- pilot error
Information Regarding Aviation Accidents
According to statistics provided by the National Transportation Safety Board, there were 449 airplane-related fatalities in 2012. Of these, 432 were in the general aviation sector.
If an airplane accident occurs, serious injuries can result due to the extreme nature of the crash. Even if the plane is on the ground, passengers can still be injured due to the momentum and weight of the plane.
If you have been injured due a mechanical malfunction, pilot’s negligence or adverse weather conditions in an airplane accident, you may be eligible for compensation.
Airline companies will do their best to avoid responsibility because it is in their best interests to do so. Therefore, is important that you hire a skilled and experienced lawyer to represent you as soon as possible following the accident.
