Florida Aviation Accidents

There is no single primary cause of aviation accidents. Pilot error or fatigue may play a big factor, but then so can defective parts and poor maintenance. Weather can play a role, but so can structures or power lines on the ground. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Most airplane accidents involve privately-owned planes, corporate jets and small chartered aircraft. According to statistics compiled by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for 2008, the fatal accident rate per 100,000 flight hours in the general aviation category is nearly five times greater than the rate of accidents for major commercial carriers. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Attorney in the Florida Aviation Accident Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Recent studies by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) have shown a marked increase in accidents involving Emergency Medical Service (EMS) helicopters. As a resource, EMS helicopters are intended to save lives by getting seriously injured or sick people to the hospital as soon as possible. The irony is that your chances of getting safely to the hospital by helicopter are lower than they are with any other form of flight.

Many air ambulance and EMS helicopter accidents are weather related. Increasingly, we see accidents that have been caused, at least in part, by pilots with a "cowboy" mentality. Some accidents are inexplicable, with experienced pilots flying into known obstacles, wires being a most common form of hazard. Fatigue can also play a big part. So can mechanical failures or aircraft design defects. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Florida Aviation Accident Claims area will fight for you.

Today's aircraft are highly sophisticated mechanical marvels capable of sustaining the safe flight of massive man-made objects that can weigh up to a million pounds.

But aircraft can and do suffer from the same kinds of mechanical failures and breakdowns that any other machine can have. An Experienced Florida Attorney in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Many of the aircraft in use today have been designed by committees. In practice, this kind of approach often results in problems like design defects that cause planes and helicopters to crash. In some cases, the defect is an actual design or engineering defect that no one catches until an accident occurs. There have been other cases in which manufacturers continue to sell defective aircraft products, even after they know there is a problem. In other cases, flaws in the process or the quality of the materials used in the manufacturing process have been found to be the source of the problem. An Experienced Florida Injury Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

Examples of pilot error include:

  • Even in the absence of defects and mechanical failures, aviations accidents can be caused purely by pilot error
  • Pilots underestimating the potential impact of weather conditions or overestimating their own ability to fly through them
  • Pilots making the wrong in-flight decisions or adjustments based on mistaken instrument readings
  • Pilots failing to follow the manufacturer's stall avoidance and recovery procedures
  • Pilots neglecting proper maintenance of the aircraft
  • Pilots failing to conduct a full preflight inspection
  • Pilots violating FAA regulations
  • Pilots flying while intoxicated

The causes of small plane accidents are extremely difficult, and the legal issues involved with such cases are at least as complex as those associated with major airline disasters.
