Aviation Accident Compensation
If you have recently been injured in a plane accident, you may be wondering if you are eligible to receive compensation for the physical and mental damages you have suffered. Here is some beneficial information on aviation accident compensation.
Aviation Accident Compensation | Causes of Accidents
Aviation accidents can be caused by:
- Problems with avionics (control systems in the aircraft)
- Air traffic control
- Runway and air traffic
- Fuel issues
- Failed maintenance
- Pilot error
- Defective manufacture or parts
Victims of a plane crash may be able to file claims against a negligent owner or operator of the aircraft, a manufacturer or supplier of the aircraft or parts, and any other third-party responsible for maintenance or upkeep. We have an attorney who often associates with our firm who is a licensed pilot. Most but not all accidents are caused by pilot error. Having an attorney who is also a pilot is extremely valuable in understanding pilot error and responsibilities.
Aviation Accident Compensation | Making a Claim
Immediately after an airplane accident, numerous parties will make the accident scene to start an investigation. The FAA will begin an investigation if the plane was under its control which often isn’t the case with small private planes. The airframe manufacturer and the engine manufacturer will often investigate the scene. The fuel provider will also be involved in the investigation. It is important that the family of the passengers in plane accidents have someone represent their interest.
