Boynton Beach Airline Accidents
In 2011, a Cirrus SR22 private aircraft crashed in Boynton Beach, Florida, killing both passengers.
The incident highlighted the danger of private aircrafts, which are becoming increasingly widespread. Likewise, individuals are flying corporate jets at a higher rate than ever before.
While commercial airline accidents are much more rare than their private or corporate counterparts, they do occur. High profile accidents of airliners last year killed hundreds of passengers and wounded many others.
Millions of people fly every year, either on private or commercial jets. If any of these aircrafts are involved in an accident, passengers can suffer injuries or even death.
To try to build a winning aviation accident claim, victims and their families may require the help of knowledgeable attorneys. The Frankl & Kominsky team is available to try to assist anyone who has been involved in an airline disaster.After an Aviation Accident
An accident involving any type of aircraft can cause major injuries to passengers. Immediately after an aircraft accident, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigates the incident to identify the reason for the crash and those responsible.
The most common reason for an aircraft accident is pilot error. This can include anything from errors caused by fatigue, electing to ignore guidelines, or failing to follow proper procedures. Inclement weather, debris, defective design or maintenance, or errors by the air traffic controllers or ground crew are also common reasons for an airline accident.
Every aircraft accident involves a multitude of parties. Pilots and co-pilots, mechanics, ground crews, air traffic controllers, baggage handlers, airports and other can all have some role in the events that lead up to an airline tragedy.Private/Corporate Jets
One of the largest risks in the sky today comes from private or corporate jets. These aircraft are involved in five times more fatal accidents in the United States than corporate airlines. These include private planes and chartered corporate planes.
A review of accident records shows that part of the reason for the problem is lack of sufficient oversight and poor decisions by pilots and air crew. Pilots in private service are not limited in the number of hours they can fly, sometimes leading to exhausted pilots flying planes. The same records show that crews have skipped safety checks and overlooked hazards such as ice on the wings in order to get the planes in the air more quickly.Costs & Remedies
Even a relatively minor aircraft accident can cause significant injuries. Bruises, broken bones, cuts, internal bleeding, concussions, whiplash and even death can all occur from an aircraft accident. That means, injured passengers can accumulate high medical bills and lose work as they recover from their injuries.
