Negligent Aircraft Maintenance Lawsuits

When a plane or helicopter crashes, often the first investigation involves the maintenance crews responsible for the aircraft. While design or manufacturer defects can cause aviation accidents, as can pilot errors, ensuring the proper maintenance is done before an aircraft takes off for flight is essential for safety. Skipping the needed maintenance or not doing it correctly can lead to serious malfunctions that can take the lives of those on board the aircraft during an accident.

Every aircraft has specific maintenance regulations that need to be completed for it to be considered safe to fly. This is a detailed checklist of components that need to be inspected or maintenance that must be done to ensure the aircraft meets safety guidelines. How often and what needs to be performed can vary by aircraft, but all commercial and personal aircraft require this maintenance to be completed.

Poorly Maintained Aircrafts Cause Accidents

It is estimated that almost 40% of aviation accidents are caused by maintenance negligence. Sadly, this often is due to airlines and other aircraft companies using inferior resources to maintain their airplanes and helicopters. Many times, aircraft maintenance is subcontracted to the lowest bidder, resulting in errors. Inexperienced mechanics or poorly trained technicians may miss a crucial step in calibrating a component that can lead to engine failure or many other issues.

When an aircraft accident causes injuries or deaths due to negligent aircraft maintenance, it requires extensive research and legal expertise to build a successful legal case. Our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP has the experience and resources necessary to uncover aircraft maintenance negligence and discover whether it was instrumental in causing the failure that lead to the injury or fatality aviation accident. Contact us if you have lost a loved one and want to explore your options, including filing a negligent aircraft maintenance lawsuit.
