Bradenton Airplane Accident Lawyer

Aviation and airplane crashes, though rare, often result in tremendous loss in life in some cases, as well as traumatic injury for dozens or even hundreds of victims. If you were injured in a plane crash or involved in another type of aviation accident, you may be owed financial compensation to cover the costs of your medical bills and other damages. However, due to the widespread damage of many plane crashes, it can be extremely complicated when it comes to dealing with an insurance company that is facing multiple personal injury lawsuits at once. Additionally, investigating the cause of the crash is an important step in any personal injury case, and a process that is all the more complex in aviation accidents. If a family member or loved one died as a result of an aviation accident, filing a wrongful death lawsuit can help cover costs associated with funeral or burial expenses, as well as other more significant types of damages, such as loss of consortium. Contact the law offices of the Pendas Law Firm to discuss your case with one of our experienced Bradenton airplane accident lawyers today.

Traveling by Aircraft is Safe, But Accidents Still Happen Due to Pilot Error, Poor Maintenance, Dangerous Weather, and Parts Malfunctioning

When it comes to aircraft accidents, commercial jets are the least likely to crash, though when they do, they have the largest casualty numbers. Small private planes and charter aircraft are more likely to crash than commercial planes, and most calculations place private planes at the same safety level as driving a motor vehicle. Aircraft safety has improved over the decades thanks to better technology, but even the best technology can fail. Common causes of commercial and private aircraft accidents include:

  • Pilot error;
  • Dangerous weather;
  • Poor maintenance of the aircraft;
  • Faulty parts; and
  • Air traffic control mistakes.

Examples of pilot error, which are most common among smaller private plane recreational flights, include misreading equipment, low-level maneuvering (purposefully making a close-to-the-ground maneuver to show off for fun), and taking off in poor weather or not properly reading disastrous weather signs. Most crashes caused by bad weather are fatal, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Other types of disastrous pilot mistakes include:

  • Stress;
  • Fatigue;
  • Not adhering to a check list;
  • Poor preflight planning;
  • Improper use of equipment or technology; and
  • Running out of fuel.

Investigating the Cause of the Crash

As with any type of accident, the cause of an aviation crash must be investigated in order to assign liability. In larger commercial aviation accidents, the black box, which is a near-indestructible device that collects all the information leading up to the accident, can shed much light on what happened. However, the cause of most aviation accidents are not cut and dry. Our law firm has considerable resources and experience in all types of airplane and aviation accidents, and will get to the bottom of what happened and who was at fault.
