Causes Of Major Domestic Airline Accidents
On some occasions, a plane accident is simply that: an accident. Unforeseen bad weather or other acts of God, as well as plane collisions in uncontrolled airspace, can lead to accidents in which there is no one specifically at fault. More often, however, pilot, maintenance and air traffic control errors are the culprits for plane accidents:
- Airline manufacturing error: Boeing and Airbus are the two biggest airline manufacturers. In cases where an airplane has been maintained correctly, and traffic control and the pilots did everything correctly, yet the plane crashes anyway, manufacturing is usually the first place we will look for liability.
- Airline maintenance error: The most perfectly constructed airplane will still fail if it is not maintained properly. We are well-versed and experienced regarding the Federal Aviation Administration regulations for airline maintenance, so if a maintenance mistake occurred, we can find it.
- Pilot error: Because large commercial airlines have more complicated controls and avionics, the licensing standards for commercial pilots are among the highest for any kind of pilot. Nonetheless, these pilots can still make fatal mistakes.
- Air traffic control error: On some occasions, the people in the towers can lead a pilot astray and cause an accident.
