Little more than a hundred years ago, airplane travel existed only as a fantasy in the imagination. Now, it has become so commonplace that it is often taken for granted. The aircraft that are used in commercial fleets and even smaller charter planes are very technologically advanced and require expert design, maintenance, and operation. Errors by airplane manufacturers or airline employees can dramatically increase the likelihood of aviation accidents. Plane crashes from the air or on the ground may result in serious injury or death for the persons that are involved in these devastating incidents.
If you have been hurt in an aviation accident or have tragically lost a loved one, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation for appropriate damages. The legal process can be intimidating for a layperson, but it does not have to be.

Factors in Airline Crashes
The disturbing pictures and video footage taken by news media at the scene of an airplane crash can make a lasting impression. As a consequence, many airline passengers feel a heightened degree of anxiety when boarding an aircraft. While the vast majority of flights reach their destination without incident, those that do not can end in disaster. Aviation accidents can be caused by the following:
- Pilot error
- Pilot intoxication
- Airplane defect or malfunction
- Negligent maintenance
- Lack of training
- Negligent airline hiring
- Air traffic controller error
