Aviation Accidents


Aviation accidents and aviation-related accidents include many types including:

  • Commercial airline crashes
  • Small plane crashes
  • Helicopter crashes
  • Air ambulance crashes
  • Crop duster crashes
  • Airport accidents
  • Injuries occurring while passengers board and disembark
  • Injuries resulting from mechanical failure or malfunctioning safety features

A critical component in an aviation accident case is a determination of the true cause of the crash or other type of accident. Was it a pilot’s error, a mechanic’s error, a manufacturing defect, negligence of an air traffic controller or neglect by airport authorities? Aviation is a highly regulated enterprise. To get to the bottom of the causes of an airplane crash, a detailed investigation is an important first step.
