Determining At-Fault Party in Aviation Accidents
This is hardly ever the cause of most air crashes. In fact, it’s projected that only 12% of all aviation accidents are weather-related. If the weather conditions are risky, most flights are often canceled. Failure to do so may be a sign of negligence from the aviation company. When the weather changes abruptly, the crew and air traffic controllers have a duty to ensure the plane lands safely.
Mistakes by Crew Members
Aviation accidents may be caused by failing to perform routine onboard safety duties or storing luggage incorrectly. When such incompetence causes injuries or even death, the airline crew may be held accountable.
Laxity in Airplane Maintenance
Routine airplane inspection and maintenance are necessary and mandatory. When airlines do the bare minimum in airplane maintenance, they may be held liable if an accident occurs.
Negligence in Airline Operations
Airline actions such as flying with little fuel, dangerous landings, and other risky behaviors make the airline liable for any accidents and injuries caused. This shows negligence and disregard for passengers’ safety.
Aircraft Design and Manufacturing Defects
The aircraft manufacturer and maker of each aircraft part have the responsibility to ensure the airplane is made with no manufacturing or design defect. They can be held liable if such defects cause harm to others.
What Kinds of Train Accidents Are There?
Many types of accidents can involve trains, including:
- A collision between a train and a commercial truck or passenger vehicle
- A train derailed, injuring passengers and bystanders
- A train striking a bicyclist or pedestrian
- Worker injuries caused by derailments, exposure to dangerous substances, or hazardous workplace conditions
- Premises liability accidents that happen at train stations
Similar to vehicle accidents, most train accidents are caused by human error. Some of the human errors that might cause a train accident include:
- Improper braking
- Traveling at a fast speed
- Defective tracks or trains
- Negligent driving
- Improper maintenance
- Electrical or mechanical failures
Our railroad accident attorneys have the experience to determine who and/or what caused your injuries.
Not only that, but we’ll work tirelessly to identify the at-fault party, pursuing them for the justice and compensation that you deserve.
