Negligence and Airplane Accidents
Accidents involving aircraft are highly complex. A wide range of factors are involved in maintaining the safety of any given flight. When an accident does occur, several parties may be held liable for the accident, including:
- Pilot: The pilot of an airplane has a long list of duties which they must carry out. If they fail to perform any action properly, such as checking instruments or adjusting for weather conditions, an accident can occur.
- Mechanic: Before take-off, the mechanical staff inspects the plane to ensure it is safe to fly. Failing to properly maintain or repair equipment can have serious consequences.
- Air traffic controller: These individuals have the crucial job of maintaining flight paths and ensuring safe passage for aircraft. However, in some cases, air traffic controllers fail to give timely warnings or violate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules, leading to catastrophic results.
- Manufacturer: Improper manufacturing or design can often contribute to or cause an incident.
Our team at the Law Firm of Roger 'Rocky' Walton can investigate the accident to determine who is at fault and begin building a case to hold negligent parties responsible for their actions.
