Fatal Plane Accidents in California
Fatal plane accidents take the lives of hundreds of people across the country every year. In many instances, these accidents are a result of some type of negligence.
Human errors tend to take the lead on causes of fatal plane accidents. When a person does not pilot the aircraft correctly or they engage in reckless operational practices, it can have devastating consequences. We also see many accidents occur as a result of air traffic controller negligence. When an air traffic controller does not give clear, concise, and accurate directions to the pilot, it can lead to devastation.
Other common causes of these accidents include:
- Mistakes by crew members
- Design defects in the aircraft
- Inadequate maintenance of the aircraft
- Inclement weather conditions
