New Jersey Aviation Accident Attorney
When Airborne Vehicles Crash Due to Negligence
Air travel is often far safer than traveling by car or boat, often due to the strict standards imposed upon airplane manufacturers. However, though rare, aviation accidents tend to be much more fatal than their counterparts on the water or asphalt. As a result, airplane design, manufacturing, and maintenance, as well as pilot training and continual evaluation, all have very high and exacting standards. These standards ensure safety while clearly revealing negligence.
That means when an airplane or helicopter malfunctions and crashes, it is likely due to a preventable error—either in manufacturing or on the pilot’s part. If you or a loved one was harmed in an aviation accident, turn to the personal injury attorneys at Levinson Axelrod, P.A. We have the experience you need with complex litigation. Proving fault in an aviation accident requires precise skill and extensive resources—both of which our firm possesses in abundance.

The Causes of Aviation Accidents
The two most likely causes for aviation accidents are pilot errors and mechanical failures. These two factors account for over 70% of all crashes and fatal accidents in airborne vehicles. However, other errors can contribute to crashes as well. In fact, one study found that major airlines have enough safety measures in place to tolerate up to six errors at the same time before a crash is imminent. It is the crucial seventh error that creates a harmful or fatal incident.
These errors can include:
- Pilot fatigue
- Design flaws
- Poor navigation
- Sudden lack of fuel
- Depressurization of the cabin
- Control tower miscommunication
