When a loved one is involved in a plane accident, it may be difficult to know where to turn. Determining the cause of a plane crash is extremely complex. That is why it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney for support and guidance.
Because aviation accidents are complex cases, it is important to investigate all aspects of the plane crash. This includes the flight preparation, maintenance of the aircraft and recovering black box records that include the moments leading up to the crash. This is when the use of experts and investigators are needed to determine what factors may have contributed to the accident.
Factors may include:
- Poor judgment of the pilot
- Equipment malfunction
- Improperly maintained and inspected equipment
- The aircraft’s structural design
- The pilot’s alertness
- The functioning of radar and other equipment
No lawsuit will ever compensate for the loss of a loved one. However, a wrongful death and survival claim against the commercial airline, product manufacturer, or engineering firm can result in much-needed compensation for the family.
