Causes of Airplane Accidents 

An airplane accident is rarely expected or intentional. However, that does not mean that airplane accidents are not preventable. In fact, most of the time, airplane accidents occur because of errors or malfunctions that could have been avoided. Some common causes of airplane accidents include:

  • Airplane pilot negligence (intoxication, fatigue, etc.);
  • Negligent actions of flight staff;
  • Negligence of air traffic control;
  • Dangerous conditions inside or outside of the aircraft (such as turbulence) which may not be preventable;
  • Negligent actions of flight preparation crew; and
  • Defective airplane equipment.

Losses in an Airplane Accident

While airplane accident may be rare, they do occur, and the damages that they cause to victims are tragic. It is rare for an individual to survive a plane crash; if they do, they almost always have severe and debilitating injuries, including burn injuries, a traumatic brain injury, a back or/and spinal cord injury, amputation injuries, and more.

The victims of the airplane accident themselves are not the only one who are wrongfully harmed in a crash; their families suffer severe losses as well. When an injury results in death or serious disability, surviving family members may lose an economic provider, guidance, companionship, and more.

Because the losses in an airplane accident often total hundreds of thousands of dollars when adding up medical expenses, funeral and death benefits, lost wages, and noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, hiring an attorney who is used to handling high value claims is highly recommended.

What You Need to Prove When a Plane Accident Occurs 

If you are injured in a plane accident or lose a loved one and would like to file a legal claim in order to recover compensation, you will need to prove four things: that the negligent party owed the victim a duty of care; that this duty of care was violated (i.e., negligence occurred, such as operating a plane while intoxicated); that the negligence was the direct cause of the plane accident; and that the airplane accident resulted in damages to the victim.
