Hundreds of people die each year in the United States in airplane crashes and thousands perish worldwide.
A study of nearly 2,000 major airline crashes over more than five decades found that 60 percent were caused by pilot or other human errors, such as improper loading or maintenance. Another 21 percent were attributable to mechanical failure. (Weather was blamed for most of the remaining accidents.)
If you or a loved one was injured or killed in an airplane accident, please call 800-243-1100 to speak with an aviation accident attorney.
Whether an airplane accident involves a major commercial carrier or a smaller private plane or jet, such mishaps are no less open to civil litigation than an accident involving a car or truck. Airplane lawsuits are often filed by people hurt in accidents or by the families of those who died.
