Common Causes of Aviation AccidentsFlying on commercial airliners is extraordinarily safe these days with your chances of being in a commercial airplane accident being in the 1 in 7 million range. To put it in prospective, you can take a round-trip flight everyday for the next 8,500 years without injury according to probability. Small plane accidents are more risky in that there are over roughly one thousand small place accidents each year. The most common causes of commercial and small-place aviation accidents are pilot error, improper landing, engine failure, in-flight icing, in-flight instrument failure, mid-air collisions, flight instructor error and negligent maintenance.
Aviation accidents that result in injuries to passengers and pilots are most common during the following parts of the flight:
- taxi, load, unload and parked
- takeoff and initial climb
- initial approach
- final approach
Common Aviation Accident DefendantsThere are two potential types of defendants when dealing with with an aviation accident lawsuit. The first are manufacturer or maintenance suppliers, which are held liable in the instance of an engineering or mechanical error. The second are owners or operators, which are held liable when an accident occurred because of human error. Common causes of aviation accidents include equipment malfunction, poor manufacturing, poor aircraft design, structural issues, pilot error, pilot or other employee negligence, failure to fuel aircraft properly, lack of necessary repairs to aircraft, and violation of Federal Aviation Administration regulations and Federal Air Traffic Controllers negligence.
Victims of aviation vehicle accidents sustain a multitude of injuries, the most common being head and face injuries, shoulder and arm injuries, back injuries, neck and spinal injuries, leg and knee injuries and psychological injuries.
