Tampa Aviation Accident Attorneys
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable
There are few accidents more catastrophic than aviation accidents. As the demand for air travel increases, so do the risks of traveling by plane or helicopter. Despite technological advances and improvements to aircraft design, airplane accidents remain a serious concern and a source of catastrophic – and often deadly – injuries.
Our airplane accident attorneys have unique experience in the aviation industry – Attorney Steve D. Parker served as a pilot in the U.S. Navy for eight years. During this time, he flew several different types of aircraft, specialized in air-to-ground training, and taught other Navy pilots how to fly in the low altitude flight regime.
Common Causes of Plane Accidents
Though airplane accidents are less common than car accidents, they do happen – and the results are often devastating.
Some of the most common causes of aircraft crashes include:
- Pilot error: A vast portion of plane accidents are caused by pilot error. Pilots are expected to be able to safely maneuver their aircraft and should be prepared to address issues as they arise. A failure to do so can leave them liable.
- Mechanical failure: If a plane or helicopter does not receive the proper maintenance or if a part of the aircraft was poorly manufactured, mechanical failure may occur. Even the most skilled pilot may not be able to avert a crisis involving a mechanical failure.
- Non-pilot human error: Other people involved in the flight – such as air traffic controllers, maintenance engineers, and fuelers – may be liable for any mistakes they make that lead to accidents.
