Aviation accidents happen, though not as often as road accidents. Air transport is considered a safe mode of transportation, as few incidences could cause the plane to come tumbling down. It most certainly will not hit a tree, right? Nonetheless, planes crash too. 
By air travel, we are looking into all modes of air carriers; helicopters, private jets, commercial aircraft, and charter flights. 

Causes of Aviation Accidents:
What causes a plane to malfunction? 

  • Faulty equipment
  • An error by the pilot.
  • Structural issues.
  • Negligence by the cabin crew.

These are the damages that you are eligible for when you hire an experienced personal injury attorney:

  • Medical expenses, past, and future.
  • Damages for physical and emotional pain.
  • The loss of consortium-for married couples. 
  • Lost wages.
  • Lost earning capacity.
  • Punitive damages.

Personal Injury Claims

The National Transportation Safety Board is taxed with investigating aircraft accidents and recommending the necessary steps towards preventing them in the future. If you are in a plane accident, you have the right to seek compensation for injuries suffered, particularly when the accident was as a result of either or all of the outlined causes. 

Aviation injuries are not common and therefore, require some degree of expertise. If you decide to file a case against the aviation company, your first call should be to a personal injury attorney who is well versed in this area of practice. Leave it to the knowledgeable attorney to delve into the details and decide whom the liability falls on according to the merits of the case.
