Who is Liable for an Aviation Accident?
The aftermath of a plane or helicopter crash raises another question: Who is responsible in these types of cases? There are many different people who could be liable for an aviation accident, and figuring that out involves knowing the cause.
The most frequent causes of aviation accidents include:
- A pilot who is fatigued, intoxicated, or otherwise not alert
- Misconduct and violations of safety measures
- Pilot inexperience and improper training
- Defective aircraft design or manufacturing
- Inadequate maintenance
- A lack of safety monitoring
Some of these causes can, if proven, clearly be attributed to one individual or group (usually the pilot, an aircraft manufacturer, or flight company). However, there are some instances in which blame can fall on multiple parties. Determining the cause of a crash and who is responsible requires careful evaluation from our Newport News aviation accident lawyers.
