There are many possible causes of plane crashes. Unfortunately, many crash victims conclude that the event is nothing more than an unavoidable accident. But many of these tragic events are caused by a situation that was foreseeable and therefore, preventable. This can result in legal rights for victims. Trained investigators and attorneys with experience representing victims of plane crashes can provide these answers. Some common causes include:
Did a pilot make a mistake?
Was the pilot in the proper physical condition required to fly?
Was the plane properly maintained in a safe condition?
Did an air traffic controller make a mistake?
Did someone violate aviation regulations?
Did a component part fail because of a maintenance error?
Was it a design or manufacturing defect?
Was the aircraft part properly installed and was it operating as designed?
Were the adverse weather conditions predicted?
Did some responsible party take an unnecessary risk?
Is someone criminally or civilly responsible for the crash?
