Ocala Airplane Accident Lawyer

Fourteen percent of Americans take one plane trip per year, while 31 percent of Americans take two or more airline trips per year, according to an Ipsos Public Affairs survey. Despite so many of us flying on a frequent basis, many people have not lost their fear of flying. Most people still feel their heart rate increase during bad moments of turbulence, and for good reason. Despite being safer per mile traveled than driving or being a pedestrian (aviation is still actually the safest type of any travel according to Mental Floss), flying is still dangerous.

Whether you were in a plane crash, suffered an injury from falling luggage during turbulence, or were the victim of a trip and fall, our Ocala airplane accident lawyers can help you pursue compensation from the party responsible for causing your injuries. The compassionate lawyers here at the Pendas Law Firm also represent the loved ones of deceased aviation victims in wrongful death cases. With all aviation accidents, a thorough investigation is conducted to uncover potential negligence on behalf of the airline carrier, charter company, plane manufacturer, or the pilot if the incident occurred during a private flight. It is important to retain legal counsel quickly following any type of airplane accident to preserve evidence of the incident and to begin documenting the extent of the victim’s injuries and other damages.

Common Causes of Aviation Crashes

Plane crashes are statistically more likely to happen during a private flight than a commercial flight. Small planes lack the sophisticated navigation and auto-pilot equipment of large airliners. Additionally, maintenance and upkeep of private planes is less stringent than virtually all commercial carriers require. Lastly, commercial pilots have much more experience than the typical private plane pilot. As such, private planes are not only more likely to crash, but the causes of crashes differ among private and commercial aviation. Despite safety backups and strict regulations, commercial aviation crashes are still a risk whenever a plane goes up in the air.

Common Causes of Private Aviation Crashes:

  • Taking off in dangerous conditions;
  • Inadequate forecasting of future conditions;
  • Flying into a fixed object during low visibility, such as a building, the ground, or a hillside;
  • Running out of fuel;
  • Rough weather landings;
  • Flying too low to the ground;
  • Pilot inexperience or intoxication; and
  • Aircraft or equipment malfunction.

Common Causes of Commercial Aviation Crashes:

  • Air traffic control error;
  • Takeoff or landing problems;
  • Technology failure or misuse of technology;
  • Mechanical failure;
  • Damaged or defective aircraft/equipment;
  • Pilot fatigue, stress, or intoxication; and
  • Failure to complete proper pre-flight inspections.

Commercial Airline In-Flight or Pre-Flight Injuries Not Involving a Crash:

  • Falling baggage;
  • Slip, trip, and fall getting on or off the plane;
  • Trip and fall during the flight;
  • Injuries sustained while being unnecessarily or illegally removed from a plane;
  • Burns from spilled or overly heated liquids; and
  • Injuries sustained during turbulence.
