Pilot Error In Airplane Accidents

The lives of every single passenger on a plane are in the hands of the pilot and his or her co-pilot. Their job is to keep every passenger safe from their departure and ending destinations. This includes the boarding, taxing, the runway, take-off and landing. When a pilot makes a mistake or error, this can cause huge ramifications from passenger injury to a serious incident, such as an airplane crash. The result is almost always a catastrophic or total loss. If you believe pilot error was the cause of your loved one's airplane accident, make sure you hire a law firm that can handle these complicated types of injury cases.

How Pilot Error Happens

  • Inexperienced pilots or undertrained pilots who were allowed to fly unsupervised
  • Pilot operating while distracted: this includes cellphone use, drinking or using illicit drugs
  • Failure to properly monitor altitude and speed of airplane
  • Failure to communicate using proper protocol with air traffic control
  • Inadequate management of landing gear or other mechanical errors
