Chicago Aviation Accident Attorneys
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.
