Common Causes of Aviation Accidents
Any aviation accident will be investigated thoroughly by the FAA. You may think that the FAA has a seemingly unlimited amount of resources with which to clearly determine causes of accidents so that you can obtain full compensation, but this is rarely the case. These cases are never as simple as receiving one clear answer from the FAA. You need a skilled lawyer to advocate for you and your case.
Aviation accidents can have many causes, and accidents may include:
- Pilot error
- Faulty maintenance
- Hazardous weather
- Takeoff accidents
- Equipment failure
- Accidents occurring to the airplane mid-flight
- Landing accidents and defective landing gears
By investigating the cause of the aircraft accident or collision, we can maximize your compensation. From conducting accident reconstruction, utilizing an expert network of forensic analysts, or investigating special recording devices such as the airplane flight data recorder (also known as a black box), we can help determine whether your or your loved one's accident was caused by a defective part, pilot error, or other issues. We work hard to hold parties responsible for FAA negligence, air traffic controller error, aircraft part manufacturer errors, commercial airline negligence, private charter company negligence, and individual pilot error.
