Airplane accidents and crashes can be very traumatic to a victim. Coupled with the high cost of medical treatment, many victims are left scattered and wondering what the next steps may be. Here at Megeredchian Law, we help our clients recover damages against negligent and liable parties. We work to make sure that those who caused the accident are held accountable.

What are the different types of airplane accidents?

There are only a few causes for plane accidents. These include:

  • Plane design defects: a defect in the design of the airplane could cause the plane to suffer potential future accidents. For example, if the wings of the aircraft are designed improperly, any injuries that stem from an accident could hold the product manufacturer liable under a products liability claim. A product liability claim allows the plaintiff to sue the product manufacturer and retailer for compensation.
  • Manufacturing part defects: this occurs when there is a slight deviation from the other types of parts manufactured. This may cause mechanical and equipment error, and could be pursued under a product liability claim.
  • Negligent repair and negligent maintenance: almost every airline works with an independent maintenance company that is responsible for repairing and maintaining the airplanes. Constant maintenance is needed or it may cause mechanical failure.
  • Negligent pilot driving:  a pilot has a duty to make sure that they drive in a reasonably responsible manner. Before being hired, a pilot must go through years of extensive practice and training. A pilot must obtain a license to drive large planes.
  • Inexperienced Pilots: those who have not been properly trained may make errors and cause airplane accidents.
  • Improper training: when airlines improperly train their employees, they could be held liable under negligent hiring and negligent training practices.
  • Negligent traffic control: every pilot must adhere to the air traffic controller’s request. When an air traffic controller provides negligent instructions, an accident may occur

What type of compensation will I recover with my aviation accident claim?

  • One of the most common damages our clients seek to recover is medical bills. Airplane accidents can lead to very catastrophic injuries.
  • Lost wages: this takes into account any past hours and loss of income, along with any future loss of income.
  • Pain and suffering and emotional trauma
