St. Louis Airplane Accident Attorney
Common Causes of Airplane Accidents
As is true of most kinds of accidents, an aviation accident is almost always preventable. Accidents usually occur because of a "chain of events" - no matter whether on the water, on the road or in the sky. For example, an incomplete pre-flight inspection failing to note worn parts in the landing gear and failing to get them replaced may not become a problem unless bad weather or landing conditions create extra stress. In such a situation, however, it can then cause a devastating malfunction. More attention paid during the maintenance inspection could have avoided such an accident. If you have been injured in an aviation accident or have lost a loved one turn to a skilled St. Louis personal injury attorney with decades of experience in aviation accidents.
Hard-Hitting Airplane Accident Lawyer in St. Louis
There is a great deal of technical knowledge involved in the recreation of an aviation accident. It may require a number of independent objective investigators to expose the truth and preserve the evidence. The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board), which is responsible for ensuring accidents are investigated, very often has the aircraft manufacturer, or the manufacturer of the component, perform post-accident tests.
In the case of a disastrous crash, the financial future of that same manufacturer and its employees may depend on the published findings of these tests. An experienced airplane accident lawyer at our firm will call upon numerous highly qualified experts to scrutinize every aspect of the disaster and produce accurate findings as to where any negligence lies and any design flaws exist. This way, the survivors will get their answers regarding what caused the accident and will be able to move forward in demanding full compensation.
Only when the truth is known can the source of negligence be identified. Companies are in business to make a profit. When correction of a design flaw will cut into profits, company management often will veto making the needed changes. The skilled legal team at our firm is dedicated to improving aviation safety by forcing manufacturers to put safety first or lose profits by having to pay out large settlements to injured plaintiffs. A personal injury lawyer with our firm will file a comprehensive claim for all damages suffered by a client. Call the Onder Law Firm for a consultation and case evaluation.
