Fear of flying is a phobia one can expect to see on most polls of the most common fears of American adults. However, in this day and age, we are often required to get on a plane and fly because of work and family obligations. We put our trust in the pilots, flight attendants, air traffic control operators, airline security personnel, and other aviation professionals to maintain industry standards and regulations when it comes to the maintenance and operation of airports and airplanes. If you have lost a loved one or suffered injuries of your own due to the negligence of those who are expected to ensure their traveler’s safe passage to their destinations, the Charleston airplane accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Scott E. Kegel are prepared to help you seek justice.
An airplane crash can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Damaged or defective equipment
- Violations of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Regulations
- Pilot Negligence, Carelessness, or Error
- Design and/or Structural Errors of the Aircraft
- Flight Service Station (FSS) and/or Air Traffic Control (ATC) Negligence
If you’ve suffered due to one or more of the above or for other reasons in which an airplane accident occurred because safety standards were not followed to the letter, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering.
