In 1958, the United States government established a set of safety regulations for the aviation industry. These regulations described the safety standards that must be met by aircrew, pilots, and aviation professionals at all times. If an individual responsible for the safety of the aircraft is found negligent, then that person can be held liable for their actions.
When safe conditions are not met, aviation accidents can occur. Aviation accidents can be devastating, and survivors or the victims’ family must act quickly in order to secure compensation. Not acting quickly can cause legal rights to be lost. If you or a loved one has recently been involved in an aviation accident that resulted in injury or death, then an aviation accident lawsuit can help you receive due compensation.
Aviation accidents can occur on any type of aircraft. In the past, aviation accident lawsuits have occurred as a result of:
- Private airline accidents
- U.S. airline accidents
- International airline accidents
- Sightseeing tour accidents
- Medical air accidents
- Helicopter accidents
- And any other type of injuries, accidents, or collisions involving all types of aircraft.
Aircraft are complex pieces of machinery. They require maintenance, safety checks, and the successful functioning of hundreds of different components. When one of those components fails, it can lead to a serious aviation accident. Sometimes, the aircraft manufacturer is deemed liable in the event of an aviation accident, while other times, it’s the company who owns the aircraft or the team of mechanics responsible for its maintenance.
