Pompano Beach Airplane Accidents
Air travel, once reserved for the rich and famous, is now common practice for most Americans. Americans not only fly via commercial airlines, but also via private or charter flights. Pompano Beach residents and visitors are centrally located near several airports, making air travel even easier.
Unfortunately, this increase in air traffic also increases the risk of air accidents. Anyone involved in an aircraft crash or who has a loved one involved in an aircraft accident is likely to face medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and potentially even funeral costs or other expenses. Because airplane crashes are complicated, victims need a qualified legal team, like the ones at Frankl & Kominsky, to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve.Airfields Near Pompano Beach

Accidents involving airplanes can be extremely complex, and it may be difficult initially to determine the cause of the crash.
One important starting point is to consider the pilot. The National Transportation Safety Board reports that pilot error or negligence is one of the primary reasons for aviation accidents. This includes everything from pilots who are distracted or fatigued to those who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
A second area that can cause an airplane accident is faulty equipment, maintenance or repair. The plane itself can be defective, stemming from production errors. Mechanics and ground crew can fail to inspect or maintain planes adequately, further increasing the risk for passengers.
Air traffic controllers can also be at fault, for misguiding planes.
There are other reasons for air crashes, such as foul weather, crew error, or other issues which a legal team will investigate to determine the precise reason for the accident.Frankl & Kominsky Can Help
