Causes of Commercial Airline Accidents

Commercial airline accidents can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Pilot error
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Design flaws
  • Air traffic controller negligence
  • Improper maintenance
  • Violation of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations
  • Poor weather conditions

Proving Your Case

Commercial airline accidents involve factual investigations that involve a considerable amount of data and evidence.  The Chicago aviation accident attorneys at Ankin Law Offices are well-equipped to sift through the mass of documents and evidence that is accumulated through the post-accident investigations and determine whether the evidence supports a legal cause of action.

Aviation accidents – whether they involve commercial airlines or noncommercial airlines – involve complex legal issues as well.  Lawsuits stemming from aviation accidents require a comprehensive understanding of applicable state and federal laws, as well as FAA policies and regulations.  Depending on whether the commercial airline accident was caused by human error or mechanical error (or both), litigation will involve either a claim of negligence or a product liability claim.  As an experienced Chicago aviation accident law firm, Ankin Law Offices is familiar with both legal theories and can effectively pursue your claims with as a personal injury negligence claim or as a product liability claim.
