Aviation Accidents

New York, New Jersey and Nationwide

Although more lives are lost in other types of accidents, aviation accidents are known for causing fatalities on a larger scale. Aviation accidents are extremely rare, and safety is paramount with airports and airlines. While major airline disasters capture all the headlines, small planes that crash happen more often.

Regardless of the type of craft involved in aviation accidents, the families of the victims, as well as those who survive, deserve answers. The experienced aviation accident attorneys at Morelli Ratner PC will pursue justice so that you and your family can gain closure and decide what to do next.

Causes of Aviation Accidents

There are several kinds of aircraft in the skies these days, including large jets, small planes, charter flights, private jets, helicopters, and more. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents are:

  • Pilot error
  • Mechanical failure
  • Structural flaw or design failure
  • Federal Air Traffic Controller negligence
  • Violations of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations

Aviation accidents are investigated by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Looking through the evidence following an aviation disaster, both the FAA and the NTSB can help to determine who or what caused the accident. This information can then be used to help you get compensation for the negligence of another party or entity.
