Aviation Accidents And Aircraft
There are many different users of our airspace, from airplanes to helicopters, hot air balloons, blimps, hang gliders, powered parachutes and skydivers. All of these flyers must work together to make sure that each traveler safely reaches their destination. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) work with pilots and crewmembers to keep air travel safe. The FAA establishes safety standards for pilots, flights and manufacturers, which can be enforced with civil penalties and criminal charges. The NTSB investigates accidents involving aircraft, and can also recommend safety standards to prevent future accidents.
What Can Cause A Plane Crash?
Plane crashes can happen for a lot of reasons, including:
- Aviation design defects
- Negligent maintenance
- Pilot, crew or air traffic controller errors or negligence
- Violations of protocol or safety regulations
Hogan Law Firm can help with all varieties of aviation cases, from general aviation owners needing assistance with property damage claims after hailstorms or minor collisions to injury claims for pilots, passengers, or others involved in a crash.
