Causes of Commercial Airline Accidents

Any number of factors can cause or contribute to an airplane accident. When representing airplane accident victims, or individuals who have lost a family member in a fatal accident, it is important to fully understand the cause of the accident and identify the liable parties. This can be the most challenging part of handling a commercial airline accident case.

Some causes of commercial airplane accidents are:

  • Faulty maintenance — Airlines have a duty and obligation to ensure that their aircraft are safe and properly maintained. The airline may be held liable if failure to maintain caused or contributed to the accident occurring.
  • Flying in dangerous conditions — Taking off in dangerous weather conditions or failing to identify a safe path en route can both contribute to an airline accident.
  • Pilot error — Although pilots are generally well trained and experienced, they can and do make mistakes that put passengers at risk. Even a slight error can have catastrophic results when hundreds of passengers are affected.
  • Crew error — In the event of an emergency, airline crew are supposed to instruct passengers per safety protocol. When they fail to do this, passengers can become unnecessarily injured.
  • Design defects — Defects in the design or manufacture of an airplane can cause accidents now or in the future after the plane has been in use for several years.
