Are design defects a common cause of small plane crashes?

When a plane crashes, there is an immediate rush to figure out why it crashed. Authorities want to know what went wrong. They use the information gathered to help prevent the same thing from happening in the future. While this is a great thing and authorities in New York do a good job of assessing issues, sometimes the real problem is overlooked.

What does the FAA do?

Many agencies, organizations and companies work together to ensure commercial flights are safe for you and other New York travelers. These agencies do many things from managing air traffic to monitoring the manufacturing of airplanes. One important agency is the Federal Aviation Administration. You have likely heard of the FAA, but do you know what it does to ensure your flights are safe?

What is the role of the US in international accidents?

You might wonder how international air disasters are handled by the United States. If you, a New Yorker and US citizen, are flying on an international flight that experiences a problem, will you still be offered the same protection as you would on a domestic flight? These questions are best answered by learning more about the National Transportation Safety Board, which is an agency that investigates accidents involving transportation, including flights.

Combining forces in product defect cases

Generally speaking, courts could hold manufacturers liable in New York for products they make which result in a personal injury to you or someone you love. However, your path to proving fault may not be as direct as you hope, especially in cases involving powerful corporations. As you might surmise from the vast resources and international holdings of powerful automotive and aviation companies, attempts to prove a vehicle design defect's responsibility for wrongful deaths or injuries are typically difficult.
