Aviation Accidents

Although air travel is considered to be a generally safe means of travel, travel by private plane has a greater amount of risk associated with it than does commercial air travel. Though aviation accidents are not common, the outcome is usually tragic and most likely will result in serious injury or death. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an aviation accident, you need an aviation attorney at the Coye Law Firm to help you hold the responsible parties liable and recover damages for your loss or personal injuries.

As an experienced pilot and aircraft owner, Mr. Coye knows the value of information for pilots. Read about benefits and resources for members of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). If you have legal questions about your plane or aviation accident, call us today.

Aviation Law

The investigation of an aviation accident involves a long and complex process, and the families of victims can be kept waiting for long periods of time to find out the cause of their loved one's accident. According to Federal Aviation Association (FAA) requirements require pilots to be licensed and to undergo regular physical exams to ensure that they are in good condition to fly. The FAA also requires that aircraft be inspected and maintained regularly. Failure to perform these or any FAA requirements may render the responsible party liable for damages.

Causes of Aviation Accidents

The most common causes of an aviation accident are:

  • failure to perform regular inspections and maintenance'
  • pilot error
  • defective parts
  • poor weather conditions
  • design defects
  • traffic controller error
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) conducts an investigation on every plane crash that takes place, and determines the cause of the crash. Parties liable may include:

  • the air traffic controller
  • pilots
  • ground crew
  • aircraft manufacturers
  • airplane mechanics
  • service companies
  • airplane designers
  • fixed base operations
