Aviation Accident Attorneys
Flying is often the only choice for those traveling long distances in a short time. Millions of people fly in, out, and across the United States each year without incident. The number of people killed on U.S. roadways far exceeds the fatalities from aviation accidents. Although many people can walk away from serious auto accidents, few can from plane crashes.
National Plane Crash Statistical Data
According to the Aviation Safety Network, 218 people died in 30 aviation accidents worldwide in 2021.  By comparison, approximately 42,915 people lost their lives in U.S. motor vehicle crashes in 2021.  Common plane crash causes include bird strikes, air traffic control errors, design flaws, lightning, pilot incapacitation, and passenger sabotage.

What Happens After a Plane Crash?
Multiple agencies come together to investigate private and commercial plane crashes. These agencies conduct interviews with instructors and witnesses while experts analyze critical factors, such as:
- The crash scene and debris
- Aircraft maintenance and component reports
- Weather reports
- Pilot qualifications and accident history
- FAA and NTSB records
- Air traffic control records
- And more.
Once the teams determine all factors, they release the cause.
Plane crash victims’ families endure many difficulties in the days, weeks, months, and years following the accident. You want answers but must wait for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other agencies to complete their lengthy investigations.

Plane Crash Frequently Asked Questions
Federal laws governing commercial aircraft, pilots, and crews prohibit personal electronic device usage during takeoff, landing, and flying below 10,000 feet. However, these laws don’t apply to private plane pilots. While the law doesn’t explicitly ban private pilots from using cell phones, it prohibits careless or reckless behaviors (such as taking selfies) during flight.
Depending on the circumstances, you may receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Speak with your personal injury attorney about compensation for damages as soon as possible.
Speak with your personal injury attorney before signing any papers or accepting money from the airline or insurance company. The insurance company and airline have their best interests at heart and won’t necessarily offer you fair compensation. Your attorney will help you get the compensation you deserve so you can move forward.
