Small plane crash injures two after power loss

Although commercial airline accidents can affect hundreds of people at once, small planes are in many ways more likely to be affected by some sort of problem. Many smaller aircraft have been in service for longer, and they can be affected by weather phenomena more gravely than heavier planes.

Maintenance issues can also plague small planes and interrupt flights that would otherwise come off without a hitch. Two people were injured on the ground outside Houston when their plane reportedly lost power and crashed into a residential neighborhood below.

The pilot called in the power loss aboard the aircraft and diverted away from the destination to a place that was apparently the safest option for landing. The pilot suffered a head injury and the passenger experienced a broken wrist after the plane clipped a utility pole and struck a house.

The company that owns the plane issued a statement that the plane was in proper working order and the pilot was qualified for the flight that resulted in the accident. The owner is beginning an investigation into the incident, and the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will likely do the same.

When someone is injured in a small plane crash, there may be a possible claim for financial damages to help with recovery if anyone responsible for the maintenance and operation of the plane was responsible for the incident. This is also true for the survivors of victims of fatal air accidents. An attorney may be able to help outline these options at the stressful time after a crash.
