Determining the Cause of Your Accident

Causes of aviation accidents stem from various types of errors by air traffic controllers, as well as cabin fires, equipment design flaws, fuel starvation, and bird strikes. The odds of an aviation accident are slimmer than their chances of being involved in a car accident; however, when an aviation accident does occur, it often brings devastating results.

Aviation accidents can occur due to various causes:

  • Pilot error related to weather conditions or mechanical problems
  • Mistakes made by air traffic controllers,
  • Improper cargo loading
  • Poor maintenance of aircraft
  • Contamination of fuel
  • Weather conditions
  • Failure of mechanical systems
  • Sabotage
  • Other negligence or human error

When flying an aircraft of any kind, even the smallest mistake or issue can put lives in danger and lead to serious, if not fatal, injuries and damages for passengers and pilots alike.
