Whether it is a commercial aviation accident or a small plane crash involving private aircraft, aviation accidents frequently cause serious injury and even death. Our aviation accident attorneys have the experience and the resources to help the victims of any aviation accident.
Millions of people fly on airplanes each year, and even though there are relatively few commercial aviation accidents, as the number of private aircraft and private flights rises, aviation accidents involving private planes are becoming more and more common.

Some Common Causes of Aviation Accidents
Every aviation accident is investigated by state and federal authorities. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) typically issues a report identifying the cause or causes of the plane crash. These reports are often crucial pieces of evidence in the lawsuit. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents are:
- Pilot error
- Poor weather conditions
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Poor aircraft maintenance
- Air traffic controller error
This is only a small sample of the possible aviation accidents.
We Thoroughly Investigate Your Case
Our attorneys review all of the aviation accident reports to prepare the case. We typically also retain independent experts to review the reports and evaluate the evidence. We believe that only through a thorough analysis of the evidence will we be in a position to prove the cause of the plane accident.
Sometimes there are multiple parties at fault. These may include:
- Air traffic controllers
- Ground crew
- Aircraft manufacturers
- Airplane mechanics
- Service companies
- Airplane designers
- Fixed base operators (FBOs)
