St. Louis Aviation Accidents Lawyer

An Overview of Aviation Accidents

Between 100-200 aviation accidents occur every year, but the fatality statistics for these accidents is much higher, approximately 1,000-1,500. This is due to the fact that when aviation accidents do occur, it is usually at a very high speed and from a high altitude. While it is statistically safer to travel by air than it is by car, incidents that occur in air travel are much more frequently fatal than those experienced in auto accidents. Aviation accidents can occur due to an almost limitless number of factors, but it is often the case that negligence in some form is to blame. This negligence can be on the part of the pilots, the airline itself, the aircraft's maintenance team, or the flight traffic controllers who determine the flight's course. Whoever is responsible, the victims or their families may be entitled to compensation for the losses they have suffered.
