Protections For Airline Passengers

In the United States, two government agencies regulate air travel and investigate every commercial and general aviation accidents:

  • The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB): The NTSB is in charge of investigating every civil aircraft accident and recommending safety standards to prevent future accidents.
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA): The FAA sets legal safety standards for pilot conduct, flight operations, and aircraft manufacturers. It enforces FAA regulations through civil and sometimes criminal penalties

Steps To Receive Compensation

aviation accident law firm

In order to hold a party responsible for an airplane accident, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant failed to meet the legal standard of operating the aircraft either by negligence, products liability, or some combination of the two. This can be related to engineering, maintenance, or other operational issues or standards. In addition, because air travel is regulated by two federal agencies within the United States and other local governmental agencies outside of the U.S., these rules and regulations may impact a personal injury claim or the standard of care legally owed to the victim of an aviation accident.

  • Pilots, aircraft owners, common carriers, airline maintenance providers, and major airlines are among those subject to claims whenever an aviation accident occurs. In addition, product liability claims may be made against manufacturers and sellers of defective aircraft and other aviation products.
  • Aircraft owners are held to a high standard of care. If carelessness or recklessness can be proven, then the aircraft owner will be held liable for the damages suffered by injured parties, including passengers, people on the ground, and even the pilot(s) and crew. Even if the aircraft owner was not operating the aircraft when the aviation accident occurred, the owner may still be held liable under a legal theory called vicarious liability. It is similar to how automobile owners are responsible for the actions of the driver of the automobile they own.
  • Jurisdictions will differ as to what damages may be recovered and what proof is required for each category. Some states also impose "caps" (having changed tort law under the duplicitous, pro-corporate/anti-citizen banner of “tort reform”) on certain categories of damages, thereby limiting a potential recovery.
