Reasons for Airline Accidents

Often times it is difficult initially to pinpoint the cause of an aviation accident. There are numerous possible culprits in any airline accident. The experienced attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky can help identify the responsible individuals or companies and focus attention on getting compensation from them.

Pilot error or negligence is one of the most common reasons for aviation accident, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. Pilots who are fatigued, distracted, ill, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or many other factors operate at less than full capacity, potentially causing harm to passengers.

Mechanics, ground crew, or those who generally service airplanes can also be at fault. Private planes are often at higher risk for poor maintenance or inadequate inspection, but commercial airlines have suffered accidents due to mechanical problems or even failure to adequately refuel planes.

Airplane manufacturers can also be at fault. Defective or faulty equipment can cause serious accidents.

All these cases require confident, experienced lawyers not intimidated by large corporations or organizations who will fight for the rights of individual victims.
