Each day offers business as usual for the airline industry. Millions of planes take flight each year with little to no incident. However, there is a whole different percentage of instances in which plane crashes and other accidents result from a normal flight. Aviation disasters can occur at any time during the flight, be it on the runway, while taking off or even while landing. The causes of these accidents are vast, but among the most common cause is that of pilot error. To make matters worse, the tragedy is chalked up to simply being an accident and victims are rarely compensated.
According to The Guardian, nearly one hundred plane crashes occur each year. This statistic equates to roughly one accident per every 2.4 million flights. To make matters worse, fifty-three percent of these crashes are due to pilot error. Mechanical errors offer a measly twenty percent. Who pays for the medical expenses? Which circumstances truly equate to being just an accident? What do the victims who pay the ultimate price leave for their families? Unfortunately, the answers to all of these questions are undesirable.
Quality attorneys skilled in aviation are able to determine what the real accidents are and ensure compensation to the victims. Airlines often get away with no charges brought against them and a good portion of accidents are their fault as well as the pilot’s. Attorneys that are willing to take on aviation accident cases combine their knowledge of the law with a vast knowledge of the aviation industry and any statistics pertaining to both. Testimonies from victims, their families, and even the pilot result in won cases and general compensation.
