Over the last 100 years, air travel has revolutionized the world around us. Whether for business or recreation, billions of people use air travel each year. Despite advances in aviation technology, accidents and crashes continue to occur – often times with tragic consequences. At Cunningham Bounds, we have decades of experience successfully representing victims and families affected by private, military, and commercial airplane and helicopter crashes. Our aviation accident team includes two lawyers who are retired military pilots, two professional, turbine-rated, and FAA certified pilots, and a half-dozen investigators.
We appreciate and understand the unique struggles that victims and families go through following an aviation accident. Often times, a victim or family’s first question is: why did this happen? We believe that all aviation accidents are preventable, and we work with a team of leading aviation experts to provide victims and families with answers to the question of why an accident occurred. Generally, the most common causes of aviation accidents are:
- Pilot error
- Engine failure
- Computer and electronic failure
- Equipment and component failure
- Structural failure
- Faulty maintenance
- Dangerous or defective aircraft design
- Air traffic controller error
- Airport design error
- Violations of FAA regulations
Aviation accidents involve unique and complex factual and legal issues, and they demand experienced representation.
