What are some lead causes of plane crashes?

New York is a big transportation hub. Because of that, many people utilize the airports. While most will go through their lives without experiencing a plane crash, it is impossible to predict when they will happen. These crashes can be traumatic and even deadly. Today, we'll take a look at some of the possible causes behind a crash.

In an overview of airplane crash liabilities, FindLaw focuses on why airplane crashes happen in the first place. According to them, some sources have calculated that up to 50 percent of these crashes are caused by pilot error. This is generally agreed to have the biggest hand in flight failures. Many distractions can affect pilot concentration and lead to errors, such as in-plane disturbances or surprise inclement weather. Storms, ice, and other visibility issues can easily cause a pilot to make dangerous mistakes. Even experienced pilots can slip up under extreme circumstances.

Another contributing factor in crashes are errors or defects in the manufacturing of plane parts. The components of a plane come from many manufacturers and are assembled by different groups of people. One single plane can pass through hundreds of hands before completion. Any defect or failure in critical systems like the landing gear or electronics could be catastrophic and may lead to mechanical failures.

Unfortunately, regardless of the cause, the aftermath of a plane crash can be traumatizing and severe. If you have been involved in a plane crash and are seeking compensation for your injuries and trauma, consider seeking an attorney with experience handling aviation incidents, as they will know how to proceed.
