Were You Seriously Injured or a Loved One Killed in a Private Plane Accident?
Table of Contents
Small plane crashes are usually catastrophic and take hundreds of lives each year and even more people are injured in small plane accidents, sometimes even before the plane leaves the ground. Anyone who was injured in an accident or who lost a loved one in a crash may be entitled to compensation.
Private Planes: A Deadly Form of Transportation
Loss of Control In-Flight is the most significant cause of small plane crashes. In fact, nearly half of all general aviation crashes are caused by in flight loss of control. Another deadly cause of crashes is “controlled flight into terrain” where the pilot did not realize they were flying into a mountain, object, body of water, or some other obstacle until it was too late. These types of accidents are as terrifying as they sound, and they almost always result in death.
Most Plane Crashes Are Preventable
While loss of control and flying into terrain or objects are two of the most common causes of fatal crashes, the FAA reports that systems failures, fuel issues, component failure, and midair collisions also cause a great number of accidents. But the fact is, most of these issues are avoidable and preventable.
