Airplane Accidents and the FAA
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the agency responsible for the laws and regulations that govern non-military aviation. In the wake of an accident, the FAA, along with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will begin the complex process of investigating the incident in order to determine what exactly happened, how it was caused and what steps must be taken to prevent a similar incident from happening again. In the aftermath of an aviation accident, it is imperative that you contact an experienced airplane crash attorney as soon as possible. The complex nature of aviation law requires expert attention. The experienced plane crash lawyers at Zehl & Associates will guide you every step of the way.
Common Causes of Plane Crashes
The Airplane Crash Lawyers at Zehl & Associates have successfully represented numerous plane crash victims in connection with some of the most severe private and commercial jet crashes in recent history.
Despite the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) efforts to reduce pilot error and improve passenger safety, avoidable accidents still occur at an alarmingly high rate. These crashes, which are often caused by pilot error or manufacturing defects, are very difficult (and expensive) to prove, which is why it’s so critical that you consult with an attorney who has the experience and resources needed to hold the companies and pilots accountable.
Some common causes of airplane crashes include:
Design Defects: when an aircraft, or one of its component parts, is unable to withstand the normal stresses of flight including take off, landing and air turbulence due to an inherent design flaw, resulting in a crash.
Negligent Maintenance: when a maintenance team, perhaps in an effort to save money and keep planes flying, fails to properly inspect, service or repair an aircraft.
Pilot/Crew Error: when the pilot or a member of the crew negligently causes an accident.
Air Traffic Control Negligence: when the air traffic controller fails to maintain minimum clearance between airplanes at takeoff, during flight, or at landing.
Safety Violations: when an airline recklessly disregards corporate or federal safety policies in an effort to lower costs and maximize profits.
Whatever the cause, our trial lawyers will devote whatever time and resources are necessary to holding the proper parties responsible and ensuring that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.
