Pursuing Airline Negligence Claims
Air travel is generally considered a safe means of transportation. Commercial airline companies have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the millions of passengers that board their flights every year. Any error in-flight can have devastating consequences, so it is imperative that airline companies follow every safety standard that has been implemented by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Types of Airline Negligence
One of the major ways in which airlines can work to protect their customers is by ensuring that each person they hire is properly screened and qualified for their position. With so many things that could potentially go wrong on a flight, employment is one area where airlines have complete control over all of the variables. Additionally, some airline companies fail uphold standards of safety by performing any of the following:
- Negligent hiring
- Failure to adequately train employees
- Pilot error
- Federal Aviation Administration regulations violations
If you or a loved one has been harmed in a situation that could have been prevented through more responsible behavior on behalf of the airline company or its employees, you may have grounds for pursuing an airline negligence claim. It is also possible that product liability could have played a part in the accident, which would involved structural or design problems with the aircraft.
