What Causes Aviation Accidents?

Pilot Error. The pilot has made an erroneous decision that ultimately led to the crash or the mishap. The responsibility lies on the pilot and the company, since the circumstances of the crash were within his control and not uncontrollable, in the case of weather.

Runway Defects. An aviation accident lawyer can help a victim make claims if the crash was caused by defects in the runway. In this case, the airport authority carries full responsibility due to negligence and inattention to the conditions of the runway.

Failure within the Components of the Aircraft. A victim or the estate of a deceased victim can make remuneration claims from the company if the plane is found to have had problems with its components that caused the accident. Aircrafts are supposed to be checked and preflight for problems before they are allowed to fly. If not, the accident is directly caused by the negligence of the maintenance crew. An airplane crash attorney can help you with that.

July, 2013: Four pilots are under scrutiny as the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other agencies investigate the cause of the recent Asiana Airlines accident in San Francisco. Investigators have determined that the Boeing 777 was flying “significantly below” its target speed when it crashed into the runway, severing its tail and killing three teenage passengers and injuring more than 180 others.

Safety experts and investigators are questioning whether company policies and cockpit management techniques may have contributed to the unfortunate accident, citing cockpit voice recordings from the flight that show that the pilot and co-pilot did not communicate until mere seconds before the crash. “There was no discussion of any problems clearly at a time when one was developing,” said Barry Schiff, a TWA pilot and aviation safety expert.

The pilot at the controls was attempting to make his first landing with a Boeing 777. He had only 43 hours of experience flying the massive jet. His senior co-pilot was making his first flight as a trainer, with at least 3,220 hours of experience flying the 777.

NTSB Chairwoman Deborah Hersman said during a news conference, “I think it really is too early to conclude pilot error because there’s so much that we don’t know.”
