Our nation trusts and depends on our airlines to provide safe and reliable transportation around our country and internationally. Statistics show that plane travel is among the safest forms of transportation, but accidents can and do still occur. It is lucky that plane crashes are few and far between, because sadly, they are almost never minor accidents. When a commercial jet crashes, hundreds of people can die or be injured at once.
The leading cause of plane crashes is pilot error. Crashes can also be caused by design problems, defective parts or insufficient maintenance of the aircraft. Contributing factors can be weather or a mistake by an air traffic controller.
Plane crashes are not only unusual and tragic for their degree of catastrophe, but also because they often leave so little evidence behind to help explain what happened. It requires an experienced and aggressive legal team to find and examine all available evidence, including tracking down and interviewing eyewitnesses, to get the most complete story possible and prosecute effectively.
