Liability In Plane Crashes
The vast majority of plane crashes take place in private aviation. Commercial air travel is incredibly safe with very few accidents over the last several decades. Most accidents take place during take-off and landing. Private planes tend to lack a lot of the redundancies that make commercial air travel much safer. They tend to have only one engine or only one pilot. According to the FAA, the majority of crashes occur due to pilot error. Crashes can also take place due to engine failure.
The family of a victim that dies in a plane crash may be able to seek justice through California’s Code of Civil Procedure 377.60. Damages in a wrongful death claim can include money for funeral expenses, lost wages, loss of love and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can investigate your claim free of charge and let you know what your options are.
