Manufacturing vs. design defects: What is the difference?

If you suffer injuries in a New York plane crash, or your loved one dies in a crash, in all likelihood you will want to sue the manufacturer of the plane and/or of its component parts. When you do so, strict liability law applies. What this means is that you need not prove that the manufacturer(s) acted negligently in order to prevail in your lawsuit.

Can fatigue in materials cause aircraft failure?

Airplanes are responsible for safely transporting you and your family through the air and to your destination.  As planes travel over time, however, different stresses and pressure can cause the composite structures to crack or fatigue. In fact, fatigue cracks are one of the most common causes of structural failure in airplanes. If an airplane is not properly inspected and maintained, structure fatigue can cause serious problems, including accidents, injuries and even death of innocent passengers.

Is that international charter flight safe?

When people board a flight, they should feel rest assured that the airplane they are entering has been fully maintained and is safe for travel. However, mistakes made in the upkeep of the plane or system failure could lead to a catastrophic event. Ultimately, the airline responsible for taking care of the airplanes is to blame for any accidents, injuries or deaths that are caused as a result of poor equipment maintenance.
