Aviation Injuries

Choose an attorney who is aggressive, dedicated, and experienced.

Flying is the quickest and safest form of transportation in the industry. However, aviation accidents do happen. Incidentally, when they do, they can be catastrophic in terms of injuries and fatalities. According to YourLegalGuide.com in 2007, there were 86 commercial aircraft accidents, The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reported that fourteen of these were fatal, claiming the lives of 43 people. Essentially, fatalities and injuries occur respectively in aircrafts with fewer than 10 seats, and non-commercial (general aviation) aircrafts.


Whenever an airplane crashes or there is another type of aviation accident, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigates the incident. Together, these agencies clean up the crash site, collect debris and evidence, and determine the cause of the accident. Accordingly, they are the first agency to help determine the cause of the crash. They also determine if criminal charges should be brought against the airline for the crash. Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Some form of equipment failure
  • Pilot caused the error
  • Flaws in the structure (including design flaws)
  • Negligence on the part of the airline employees
  • Inattentive air traffic controllers on the ground
  • Failure to follow FAA regulations


Negligence is a typically a typical reason for aviation injury accidents. Injuries can involve personal injury and financial loss. Those harmed as a result of negligent behavior on the part of the pilot, a manufacturer, or someone else are able to receive compensation for their expenses and suffering cause from the incident.
