What Caused the Plane Accident?
Aviation disasters may be caused by a variety of factors, such as:
- Aircraft design problems
- Pilot errors
- Defective equipment
- Violations of Federal Aviation Administration regulations
- Flight Service Station employee negligence
- Federal Air Traffic Controller negligence
The party or parties at fault in your accident case will depend on how the accident occurred. For example, the manufacturer of a faulty piece of equipment could be responsible, along with the owner of the aircraft for poor maintenance. In some cases, the federal government may even be responsible. Your case could take place in several different courts. You will need to demonstrate that the defendant did not exercise due diligence in meeting certain industry regulations or standards.
Federal & International Aviation Regulations
In most cases, your claim will fall under the areas of negligence and / or product liability. There may be multiple aspects to your case. In addition, your case could be impacted by federal regulations—or even international rules. For example, if the accident occurred on an international flight, you will most likely have a limit of two years in which to file a personal injury claim, as determined by the Montreal Convention.
