FAA considers fines over possible defective plane parts

Commercial air flight is certainly the fastest way to cross the major distances on the planet, and it remains one of the safest. The chances of a serious injury or death on board a large airliner is still far less likely than a car accident or other incident on land or sea. This is why any accident is investigated when it affects the security of plane trips.

A series of incidents involving a recently released model of airliner struck fear around the world when it appeared the manufacturer had been trying to work through some problems with the plane. More than 150 people were killed when one of these planes crashed outside a major international airport in Africa.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a $19.7 million fine on the manufacturer of the airliner. The potential violation of FAA regulations involves sensors in a new type of display for pilots that had not yet been approved by the government agency.

The FAA also claims the maker of these planes certified them as worthy for duty as commercial airliners although the designs did not conform to their certifications. The administration previously considered a $5.7 million fine for failing to prevent the inclusion of defective parts.

The victims of accidents involving defective airline parts or products, as well as the survivors of crash fatalities, always have the right to seek financial damages. This may include actual losses as well as compensation for pain and emotional distress. An attorney can review an individual case and help people with the possibilities that come next.
