Chicago Lawyers Representing the Victims of Airplane Crashes

Aviation accidents are some of the most catastrophic personal injury accidents. Not only do they often involve serious injuries and deaths, but because they are carrying a number of passengers, several people are often injured or killed in a single aviation accident.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

Chicago is home to several busy airports, including O’Hare International Airport, Midway International Airport, and Chicago Executive Airport – all of which are susceptible to aviation accidents. Airplane crashes can happen for a number of reasons, but some of the more common causes of commercial airline accidents, include:

Aircraft design flaws
Equipment malfunction
Pilot error
Inadequate pilot training
Air traffic controller negligence
Improper aircraft maintenance
Violation of FAA regulations
Poor weather conditions

Aviation accidents do not always include airplane crashes, however. Aviation accidents also include injuries sustained aboard the airplane due to turbulence, poor weather conditions, faulty airplane equipment, negligent flight attendants, and negligent passengers.

Legal Issues Involved in Aviation Accidents

Depending on the cause of the aviation accident, you may be able to obtain financial compensation in a personal injury, wrongful death, or class action lawsuit against the airline, airport, equipment manufacturer, or other third party. Aviation accident lawsuits are complicated legal proceedings, with complex legal issues, multiple defendants and rigorous factual investigations, making it incredibly important to retain a skilled aviation accident attorney.
