Causes of Dallas aviation accidents

To be clear, the vast majority of planes and other aeronautical craft are incredibly safe. However, aviation accidents in Dallas can happen in a variety of ways. Some of these incidents do take place in the air, but others take place while an aircraft is on the ground. Accidents can even happen within the aircraft cabin. Some of the most common causes of Dallas aviation accidents that we help clients with include the following:

  • Careless or reckless behavior, including operating an aircraft while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or while fatigued.
  • Inadequate training of pilots or other aircraft personnel.
  • Inadequate supervision of pilots or other aircraft personnel.
  • Improper maintenance of an aircraft.
  • Defective aviation parts.
  • Failing to adhere to federal aviation safety standards.

Who can be held liable for a Dallas aviation accident?

There may be various parties that can be held liable in the aftermath of a Dallas aviation accident. For crashes involving errors made by pilots or other aviation personnel, it may be possible to hold the airline or aviation company responsible through the theory of vicarious liability. However, there may be various other parties that could be held liable for an aviation accident. This could include control tower crews or ground crews, particularly if their actions or inaction led to an accident that caused injuries.

If an aviation accident was caused by faulty aviation parts or a defective aircraft, then the aircraft manufacturer or parts manufacturers may be liable for the incident.

The reality is that these incidents are often very complex, and multiple parties may be held liable. We have seen this play out in major airline industry accidents over the last few years. Investigations tended to uncover that there or multiple failures at various times leading up to the incident, including defective instruments or systems, inadequate training, and inexcusable pilot error.
