Airplane Accident Attorney Austin

It is widely known that flying on a commercial plane is safer than traveling in a car, as airline accidents rarely occur. On the other hand, general aviation accidents involving single engine and charter planes occur more frequently than jetliner crashes. Whether an accident occurs in a private plane, a corporate jet, a helicopter, an ultra-light, or a commercial airliner, these tragedies often result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

From its office in Austin, the Tony Nguyen Law Firm fights for plane accident victims and their loved ones throughout the state of Texas. Although aircraft accident claims are very complex, we have the skill, experience, and resources that are essential for obtaining just compensation for the injured.

Common Causes of Plane Crashes

While product defects, improper maintenance and bad weather often cause plane accidents, other common causes include:

  • Design flaws

  • Mechanical  failure

  • Air traffic controller errors

  • Pilot error

  • Takeoff and landing errors

  • Running out of fuel

  • FAA violations

In an accident involving a small aircraft, it can be difficult to determine the cause of the crash and who is at fault. If the accident was caused by improper maintenance, mechanical failure or design flaws, detecting these problems can be complicated. Nonetheless, aircraft owners are required to conduct regular inspections. Pilots also have a responsibility to perform pre-flight inspections to ensure that aircraft are flight worthy. If owners and/or pilots do not conduct these inspections, they may be found negligent.

Accidents involving commercial airlines present even greater challenges because the airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and the insurance companies are armed with powerful teams of attorneys who have an advantage over accident victims. It is essential to have an experienced airplane accident attorney by your side to level the playing field.
