There are always risks involved with air travel, even though aviation has proved to be one of the safer means of transportation statistically. According to the National Safety Council, the likelihood of dying in a plane crash is around 1 in 9,737 which is much lower odds than dying in a motor vehicle accident at 1 in 113. Although rare, accidents do happen, and when these sorts of accidents do occur, they tend to be associated with devastating injuries, deaths, and extensive damages.
Aviation accidents fall under the umbrella of catastrophic accidents, meaning accidents that carry a strong risk of leaving victims to suffer from lifelong injuries or disabilities. In addition, crashes involving planes run the risk of injuring those on the ground and severely damaging property in the process. The victims of airplane accidents have the right to be awarded compensation for their damages if it's determined that negligence played a part in the accident.

Common Causes of Airplane Crashes & Accidents
Sometimes determining the cause of an airplane crash can be difficult and it always requires an extensive investigation into the time and events leading up to the accident. Common causes of airplane accidents include the following:
- Airplane design flaws
- Error with air traffic control
- Hazardous weather
- Pilot error
- Runway communication or maintenance error
- Mechanical maintenance error
- Violating guidelines placed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
- Mechanical difficulties
Texas Aviation Accident Liability
Determining which party is liable in an aviation accident case also requires extensive investigation. Guilty parties can include the pilot, the airport, the airline, the airplane's manufacturer, etc. That being said, large airlines and insurance companies are well-equipped to handle allegations of negligence and it can be difficult for victims and their families to receive the compensation they deserve from an airplane accident. Because of this, it's strongly recommended that victims consult an expert attorney rather than go through the legal processes on their own.
The state of Texas requires that all claims made for personal injury in an airplane accident be filed within two years of when the accident took place. Investigating an airplane accident takes time and obstacles are likely to present themselves. Because of this, it's recommended that victims and their families not hesitate when taking steps toward compensation in an airplane accident case and contact an expert personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
