Travel on a commercial airline is statistically regarded as one of the safest means of transportation available. Commercial pilots are usually well trained and the aircraft are usually maintained. However, there can be a significant drop-off in safety when flying on private planes where the pilots training and experience may be lacking…especially when the pilot is confronted with bad weather or unexpected mechanical difficulties.

Aviation accidents are not common but when they occur the results are nearly always disastrous. Very few people walk away from a plane crash.

Shoulder Injury X-rayPilots are licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration and are required to submit themselves for regular physical examinations to determine their continued fitness to fly. Aircraft must also be inspected and maintained regularly and failure to do routine, scheduled maintenance has been responsible for many airplane crashes. Pilot error is also a common cause of airplane accidents, particularly in small, private planes.

After every plane crash the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will conduct a comprehensive investigation to determine the probable cause of the crash. The causes of airplane accidents vary widely but defective parts, failure to perform appropriate maintenance and pilot error are three of the most common causes of aviation accidents. If you have questions concerning how or why an airplane accident occurred, please call Mr. Cunningham for an appointment to discuss your legal rights.
