Denver Aviation Accident Attorneys

An Often Avoidable Tragedy

According to the Aviation Safety Network, which tracks commercial airline accidents globally, there were 22 accidents that resulted in nearly 1,000 deaths in 2014. We entrust commercial airlines to carry people safely to their destinations and cargo to where it needs to be, but as we know, that trust is sometimes broken when a disastrous, often avoidable, the accident occurs.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), some of the most common causes of fatal general aviation accidents between the years 2001 and 2011 were:
  • Loss of control inflight – Pilot loses control of the airplane, is not trained well enough to react appropriately to emergencies or unexpected occurrences.
  • Controlled flight into terrain – Airplane is unintentionally flown into some kind of obstacle or into the ground.
  • System component failure – Includes malfunctions related to or caused by maintenance issues; malfunctions related to propellers, rotors, powerplant controls.Vehicle manufacturer or product manufacturer
  • Low altitude operations – Flying too close to the ground or other obstacles, excluding takeoff and landing phases.
