Common Causes of Airplane Accidents

Although airplane accidents are statistically much rarer than auto accidents, the former almost always has catastrophic consequences, potentially killing everyone onboard. It is important that everyone in the aviation industry—from airplane manufacturers to pilots to air traffic controllers—take their responsibilities very seriously in order to avoid devastating airplane accidents.

Unfortunately, though, these parties do not always give their duties the care and attention they deserve, potentially leading to deadly plane crashes. However, Louisville residents who have been injured or experienced the wrongful death of a family member due to airplane accidents should talk to the Sampson Law Firm to learn more about their legal rights and options.

What Causes Airplane Accidents?

Multiple individuals and parties must work together to ensure the safe function and operation of airplanes, as even the most minor errors can lead to terrible accidents. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents include:

  • Airline company negligence, such as failure to train employees
  • Air traffic controller mistakes
  • Airplane defects or malfunctions 
  • Mistakes by the pilot or crew
  • Pilot intoxication by drugs or alcohol

Pilots, airline companies, air traffic controllers, and plane manufacturers can all be held legally accountable should their negligence lead to a plane crash or malfunction.
