Aviation accidents are on the decline in the U.S., amid increasingly powerful and complicated technology. One would think there would be very few if any accidents with aircraft. The bottom line is there are still too many accidents and therefore too many tragic wrongful deaths. There are several possible factors that can cause aviation accidents; these include FAA regulation violations, pilot error, faulty equipment, adverse weather conditions, third party owner-operator negligence, flight service employee negligence, federal air traffic controller negligence, and aircraft design and structure problems.

According to the NTSB (National Transportations Safety Board), there have been 3000 aviation related accidents of aircraft since January 2005, 554 of those involved fatalities. 60 of those accidents involved aircraft other than airplanes, which is important to note because there are several forms of aviation (other than airplanes) whether it is for transportation or recreation purposes. In Texas alone in 2005, there were 21 fatal accidents out of 128 total accidents. In 2006, there have been 68 accidents as of July, 6 of which have been fatal.

While the NTSB investigates every aviation accident and does the reporting and statistics of aviation accidents and fatalities; the FAA (Federal Aviation Association, separate from the NTSB) is actually responsible for the regulation of the airline industry and creating the highest level of safety for civil aviation that it possibly can. Dealing with these two different agencies when there has been an aviation accident can be complicated. For example, each agency produces a different report for the accident and each of these reports must be thoroughly analyzed. In addition, when there are fatalities involved, the amount of time it takes to determine the cause of the accident can be up to one year or more. Often, an investigation of the accident determines that more than one party is at fault. These factors can lead to the potentially responsible parties shifting the blame.

Aviation cases usually require aviation expertise for advice and testimony. We have the network already in place for a legal team comprised of the best legal and aviation experts to assist you in dealing with the airline or manufacturing companies to recover compensation for the loss of your loved one(s). Whether your loss was due to aircraft manufacturers, commercial airlines, or third party owner-operators, we have the expertise to assist you and understand the various issues that arise with aviation law cases.

In aviation law cases, a statute of repose may be in effect, which limits the time in which a lawsuit can be filed based on how long the aircraft or a particular defective part have been in service. Because of this, if you have lost a loved one due to an aviation accident, please contact an attorney immediately to examine your case and help you determine your best course of action.
