Causes of Plane Accidents
Most plane accidents are the result of negligence, either from human error or a defective piece of equipment, and could have been prevented. Despite strict guidelines and regulations governing the design, operation and maintenance of aircrafts, accidents do happen.
Some of the most common causes of accidents include:
- Pilot error
- Poorly maintained plane or equipment
- Air traffic controller error
- Mechanical failure
- Defective design
- Poor weather conditions
- Aircraft malfunction
- Flight service employees’ negligence
Determining the exact cause of a crash and who should be held liable for the resulting damage can be complex, because there are often a number of parties involved in different aspects of a plane and its flights. Many accidents result from the negligence of:
- Crew members
- Maintenance personnel
- Airline management
- Parts manufacturers
It is the responsibility of the airline to ensure that it hires competent and knowledgeable staff with the appropriate education and experience for each position. When the airline fails in its hiring practices or hires someone whose negligence causes an accident, the airline may be held liable for damages.
Whether you were harmed or lost a loved one in a commercial plane, charter jet, private plane, helicopter, military plane or other type of aircraft, our Davie aviation accident lawyers will investigate the details of your accident to determine who should be held responsible for your injuries and losses.

How Our Davie Aviation Accident Lawyers Can Help
Aviation litigation is highly complex and requires an attorney who has an intimate knowledge of specific federal regulations and statutes. Our Davie aviation accident lawyers have experience working with these laws and the governing bodies who oversee plane accidents.
We will work in conjunction with federal, state and local agencies to gather all evidence and details about an accident. We will review:
- Flight data and plans
- Cockpit voice recorders
- Air traffic control records
- Maintenance and inspection reports
- Crash photos and videos
- Crew training records
- Manufacturer’s records about design and testing
In addition to reviewing all reports and investigations from government agencies, we utilize experienced independent investigators to launch our own inquiry into the crash to determine who was at fault for the accident and who should be held liable.
Our attorneys are aggressive in their pursuit of the truth and justice for those who have been wrongfully injured or lost their lives in a plane crash.
We have decades of experience representing the best interests of the injured against large insurance companies and will negotiate on your behalf with the airline’s insurance company after an accident.
As tough negotiators, we will not stop until you are offered the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses. If the insurance company is not willing to work with us, we will not hesitate to take a case to court in order to recover fair compensation.
If you have been injured in a plane accident, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, past and future medical bills, physical pain and emotional suffering. If your loved one died in a plane crash, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit in an effort to collect payment for medical expenses, lost companionship, funeral costs, lost income and other damages.
