Single Engine Airplane Accident
When you fly in an airplane, you have the right to expect a safe flight. This is true when you fly on a commercial airline, but it is also true on smaller, single-engine airplanes. When flown safely, these planes can be a fun, exciting experience for passengers and pilots alike. Single-engine planes are also a very convenient way to get from one place to another.
But single-engine planes are also likelier to get into crashes than traditional commercial airplanes. As a result, following safety protocol is extremely important.
Anyone who pilots a plane should be alert, awake and experienced. Unfortunately, however, sometimes pilots are distracted or disoriented. Worse still, some pilots may even try to fly while intoxicated. The result of flying with an unsuitable pilot can be disastrous, especially in a small or private plane. 376 people died in plane accidents in 2015, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. None of these accidents took place on commercial airlines.
If you were injured — or if a loved one was injured or killed – in a single-engine plane crash, you may be feeling angry and confused. If that crash was the result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve justice. An experienced attorney will listen to your story and help you fight for what you deserve. This may even include financial compensation. While a settlement cannot make up for the injuries or loss you have suffered, it can be an important step in holding a negligent person or company accountable for their actions.
