In 1958 the Federal Aviation Act and Regulations were enacted to establish essential safety standards for airplanes, which included the manufacturing of the airplane, flight operation, and the behavior of pilots.
In most cases, airlines are allowed to place a tariff on airline passengers which limits the amount that they may sue for in the event of an accident or injury for up to $75,000. With the representation of an experienced lawyer who has knowledge of Federal Aviation Law, and if it can be proved that the airline was intentionally negligent, you may be able to recover more than $75,000 in damages.
Plane crashes may be caused by a variety of reasons, such as:
- Pilot errors
- Weather conditions
- Mechanical failure
- Defective design
