Causes of Aviation Accidents
Although flying is one of the safest and fastest means of travel, accidents still happen. When aviation accidents happen, it often leads to serious bodily harm or death, often affecting dozens of passengers. Aviation accidents may happen in the air, on the ground, during takeoff or when landing. Passengers on board an airline may become injured due to turbulence or airplane malfunction.
Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents and injuries include:
- Pilot error
- Bad weather conditions
- Violations of federal regulations
- Poorly secured cargo
- Negligent flight crew
- Incorrect storage of hazardous cargo
- Negligent air traffic controllers
- Improper aircraft maintenance
Defects on the runway or defective parts on the aircraft may also lead to a crash. In these cases, the manufacturer may be held liable for the accident.
