Airplane Crashes and Airline Liability
Airplane travel is generally safe. However, when an aircraft incident occurs, the results are often fatal or otherwise very serious. While death is common in a crash, an injury can occur during boarding, landing, or in flight. Several factors may affect an airline’s liability, such as a pilot or airline’s failure to adhere to federal standards, general negligence, mechanical failure, or defectively designed or improperly maintained equipment.
