Airplane Accidents

Last Updated: Wednesday, July 22, 2015

In today's society, many people use airplanes and other aircrafts for both transportation and recreational activities. As more and more people use air transportation, unfortunately, the number of accidents has also increased.

California aircraft accidents can be very difficult to navigate because of the number of different applicable laws and regulations, as well as the many different agencies that will be involved in the process.

After an airplane accident, many investigations will occur. There will be local investigations, as well as investigations by federal agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

In addition, insurance companies may conduct investigations of their own.

In addition to the number of agencies involved, many different laws will need to be considered. The operation of aircrafts, such as airplanes and helicopters, is subject to many laws, treaties, and local regulations.

According to the FAA, air travel is expected to double in the next 20 years. While air travel is generally considered to be safe, when accidents do occur, there is a very high possibility there were be fatalities and serious injuries.

Those who may be liable for these accidents will depend on the cause of the accident. Depending on what happens, the pilot, the aircraft manufacturer or even the federal government may be held liable.
