Aircraft Accidents Lawyer Allentown, Lehigh Valley
Air travel is a popular and efficient way to transport humans, but it doesn't come without its risks. There are roughly 4 million flights every year in the United States alone for domestic carriers and nearly 60 thousand from international destinations that fly over US airspace.
This means about 1 out of 10 airplanes flying domestically will be involved in an accident each year - with most accidents being relatively minor incidents like turbulence or bird strikes; however, these don't account for fatal crashes which occur around 100 times annually on average across all types of air transportation modes (including commercial airlines).
Plane crash lawsuits are filed when an airplane crashes, and there is a death or injury. Aircraft accidents can happen anywhere - on the ground during takeoff or landing, in flight, at an airport parking lot, and during loading/unloading cargo onto/from aircraft. Whatever the cause of your accident was, if it was caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness (or both), then they should take responsibility for their actions.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF AVIATION ACCIDENTS?
There are many different kinds and categories of accidents to an airplane, pilot, or passenger. The main types include bird strikes, engine failures, crashes on takeoff or landing due to inclement weather conditions such as hail and lightning storms. In some cases, it is difficult for pilots who lose cabin pressure because they may not be able to see well enough through their eyesight alone to make adjustments when needed without instruments that have been rendered useless by a system failure caused by decompression from damage sustained during turbulence-related events like ice crystals formation inside part of the aircraft's structure during flight at high altitudes where exposure levels could lead into frostbite if exposed unprotected too long causing structural compromise leading.
WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE FOR AN AVIATION ACCIDENT?
Have you ever been on a plane and wondered who is liable if the aircraft crashes? Well, more than one entity may be held accountable for an accident. For example, in some cases, there may be negligence by the manufacturer of parts or components installed on board; negligent maintenance performed by airlines' employees or contractors; failure to comply with federal regulations, including those related to certification requirements during manufacture/assembly as well as operation maintenance procedures specified in FAA manuals.
