Product or Manufacturing Lawsuits due to Defects in Airplanes and Helicopters

Aircraft manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure both the design and the individual components on an aircraft meet safety regulations. When an aviation injury or fatality accident occurs, this is one of the considerations in determining why the aircraft crashed or created a hazardous situation. Product or manufacturing lawsuits are one of the options for victims to receive compensation for losses when an aviation accident causes injuries or deaths.

The design of an aircraft is carefully examined by both the manufacturer and regulatory agencies. It must be able to withstand the expected elements, weights and other factors for many years of service. There are many airplanes and helicopters in service that are twenty or more years old. Even with stringent testing and evaluation of design, it is possible for a design problem to be overlooked that can result in risks for aviation accidents. When this occurs, the manufacturer can be held liable for their mistake if lives are lost or injuries occur.

Component Defects on Aircrafts

Even if the design is one that is safe and may have been used extensively, manufacturing issues can still occur. Each component of an aircraft has a function and must be manufactured and installed to exact specifications to perform as intended. A piece of a rotor assembly on a helicopter that is not properly installed or an engine component in a plane that is not made correctly can lead to malfunctions that cause fires on board the aircraft or even a deadly crash.

There are thousands of components that impact the safety of an aircraft, as it only takes one to be defective to cause a serious accident. If a defective aircraft causes injury to you or a loved one, you need a legal team that has the aviation experience to represent you in an aviation manufacturing defect lawsuit. Contact Conley Griggs Partin LLP today if you believe a manufacturing defect or design error caused an aircraft accident that injured you or took a loved one’s life.
