What Causes Aviation Accidents?

Aviation accidents are often very technically challenging cases that require incredible attention to detail, familiarity with FAA regulations, and connections with aircraft experts. A skilled lawyer can help you determine the cause of the accident and the responsible party.

Some common causes of plane and helicopter crashes are:

  • Malfunctioning or faulty equipment
  • Errors by the pilot, co-pilot, or other airline employees
  • Violations of FAA regulations
  • Manufacturing, design, or structural flaws by the aircraft’s manufacturer
  • Negligence on the part of flight service station employees
  • Poor upkeep and maintenance
  • The negligent actions of a federal air traffic controller
