Because of the devastating nature of aviation accidents, it’s incredibly important that pilots, airline companies, and aircraft manufacturers do everything in their power to operate safely and adhere to federal aviation regulations. Sadly, this isn’t always the case. While airplane and other aviation accidents are rare, they do happen and they are absolutely devastating for the victims and their families.
Causes of Aviation Accidents
Just like car accidents or other types of automotive vehicle accidents, aviation accidents can have a variety of causes. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents include:
- Faulty components or parts
- Inadequate maintenance
- Failure to perform inspections and safety checks
- Poor crew training
- Outdated manuals
- Human error
- Structural failures
- Engine failures
Determining the cause of an aviation accident often takes an extensive investigation. A thorough understanding of air traffic control, radar readings, aircraft instrument panels, and federal aviation regulations is needed to determine what factors contributed to the accident. Our airplane accident lawyers are committed to determining who or what was responsible for any aviation accident.
