Fatal Aviation Crashes
Wrongful death actions involving plane crashes in Houston are very common even though it is still considered to be one of the safest modes of travel. As there are more and more private aircraft taking to the skies and a lesser number being retired from service, the potential for fatal accidents is always on the increase.
Aircraft accidents are always followed by extensive investigations whether for a large airliner or a small two-seat singe engine aircraft. While the accident may have happened in Houston or another Texas city, the United States government immediately seeks to determine if the crash was caused by pilot error, mechanical malfunction, improper service, improper fuel, weather conditions or some other cause. Sometimes, the cause is determined to be a multiple of factors.
Fatal aviation accidents are always followed by complex and detailed investigations. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) conduct exhaustive investigations to determine the cause of all types of aviation accidents including:
- Private aircraft crashes
- Helicopter crashes
- Single engine airplane accidents
- Commercial airline accidents
These investigations can take a very long time to be completed. If you have lost a loved one in an aviation accident, it can be imperative that you have an attorney conducting an investigation for you that can act as the foundation for an effective wrongful death action against the responsible parties.
These accidents can have a wide range of causes, including:
- Pilot error
- Improper maintenance
- Inadequate maintenance
- Defective equipment
- Control tower error
